There is a museum in Lake Butler that is named for my great-aunt Marjorie, the historian. My great-uncle Bill gave us a private tour one morning, explaining the collections of old rifles, bayonettes, farm equipment, kitchen gadgets, photos, shipbuilding raw material, license plates, etc.
Aunt Marjorie has an exceptional doll collection at her house that she showed us. Uncle Bill also gave us the tour of his cultivated property, with its fig and citrus trees, gardens, pond and barn
Of the four siblings, Meme travelled the farthest to be there for the event, making the drive from Mississippi to Florida. She's a genuine world traveller, having also made the trek to Italy with Mom and my aunts, then to France to visit me. Talk about an inspiration for me with this travelogue.
I don't have any copies of the group photos from this yet, so have a look at some photos of the locales.
