Good Morning

Mission Statement: The Fort Smith Streetcar Restoration Association is dedicated to the preservation and appreciation of electric powered streetcars, railroad equipment, transportation and other technology that existed during this period in history, and to providing a unique educational experience to the visiting public.

Big waves to all my blogging friends. My husband was off most of last week and we spent a few days having fun with our daughters.

Tuesday, we were off to Fort Smith, Ar--a short, almost two hour drive:). Fort Smith is working hard to restore much of their old downtown area so that tourists can get the true feel of this once 'wild west' town. In another year and a half, Fort Smith will be the proud home to the U. S. Marshall's Museum, an attratction that will add much to the already wonderful history of the town.
As you can see in the picture above, (sorry I couldn't post it by my paragraph, but Blogger won't let me this morning) we had a good time riding the trolley. Right now, it is just a short ride from one end of the track to another, but a 'loop' is in the works that will add quite a bit to the ride.

Our youngest will go back to college tomorrow. It seems like her time at home has really sped by. I hope all of you had a great week. As soon as things slow down, I'll try to start posting more and get around to 'see' all of you more, as well.


  1. Looks like a fun trip!! School days are back, means fall is near! :)

  2. Whenever I see a trolly I think of the "Riceroni"!
    Have fun my friend, we'll be here when you are ready!

  3. Oh the emotions of sending a child back to college~ like a roller coaster. Best of luck~ sounds like time at home was cherished.

  4. I think I've been to Fort Smith-but I was only a kid and I don't remember much except it was hot and I liked it! Looks like a fun place to visit-I love restored old towns! Glad to hear they're taking steps to do that!
    Enjoy your time with your famiy!
    Thinking of you! Claudia O.

  5. I agree with Tammy with the Riceroni *smile*

    Just take your time and we will "read you when you write"

    Take care,

  6. It was so nice to stop by for a visit.

  7. My son loves all kinds of trains. You look like you had a nice time. Good for you.

  8. Rose Mary, you have probably already guessed this! J and I would love this trip! Will have to put it on our list.
