Adventures around the Web September 30-October 6, 2017
As always, there’s a writing bundle in time for Nano. I always like these bundles because the quality is pretty high.
Women in the Military Service for America Memorial Foundation
Women were recruited into the WACs because of a shortage of men. They were initially on civilian status, but were later given military status. The article gives some descriptions of the training, including how the clothes (didn’t) fit, and what it was like to be deployed. Some things do not change, no matter the time in history!
June Rivers on Little Things
The first movie I remember seeing is Dick Van Dyke’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (which I named a kitten after). And, of course, the walnut episode of the Dick Van Dyke Show (if you haven’t seen that one, it has aliens from outer space). This link is worth it for the video. I’d like to be like that at 90!
Arlington County, Virginia
George Washington’s Forest
I’ve walked around all these places. Had no idea about the mill–and I’ve walked under that bridge (though it looks better on the video. I always thought it looks like a place where you would get mugged). Have to check out the last stop and see the tree.
