YES! The spirit has been realized and now the ball is rolling! Why am I so excited, because so many of you are! I also am a little full of myself, because I am now Googleable! So often today, we are all so busy running from here to there, we don't stop to enjoy what our own town has to offer. For instance, I grew up in Millard, Nebraska and have NEVER been to Boystown other than to go to the Boystown Post Office. Now I have kids and I am pretty sure I don't want to perpetuate the attitude. It is not that I have a lack of interest, I just never seem to make knowing more a priority. There are so many things that I would like to know more about or see, but someday I will do it. Someday for Boystown sill has not come. What things are you missing or would like to know more about. Here was a point of interest in Plattsmouth sent to me by my friend Dave Blankman:
"There is a place under the toll bridge on River RD that you can see and old stone path that seems to lead up to nowhere. I was told by my old neighbor Dale Bowman who has since passed away, that this is where the ferry was located and when the people reached the Nebraska side of the "Big Muddy", this road took them into town. I love showing my kids this road, I hope it's a true story but it would be nice to get a confirmation on it from someone else."
My husband says that this is by the old Ferry Glen Road, so that sounds like it would be true since the names of streets usually follow people, places or things found local. We have a great resource in town, the Cass County Museum. With gas prices the way they are, it is a great time to become a tourist in your own town. So, that is what we are going to do; visit the museum and see what they know about it. Maybe you know some more about this Plattsmouth site. Maybe you know of some other little known points of interest. Send them my way…it will be a great summer adventure!
Now that the holiday is over, there is still a lot of summer fun to enjoy…or should I say a lot of summer RUN. My daughter has volleyball camp in town all week, the Plattsmouth Public Library Summer Reading program starts back up on Wednesday and I am feeling the need to go camping. Louisville State Park fits the bill quite nicely…that way if I have forgotten anything, I am ever so close to home! Hope you are having a great week, and try to give yourself a break and enjoy some the things that are close to home. If you want to share, I would love to hear about it. Enjoy!
Cass County ROCKS!
