A-Team at the Drive-In

We saw the marmaduke and shrek last week, both good movies. This
week, I'm not sure about these being good movies, but I loved the A-
Team as a kid, and just have to see this.
This drive-In experience is the best. I will see more movies this year
than I have in the past 10 years, as far as going to the movies goes.
And for $7 for a double feature, cant beat it.

UPDATE:  A-Team was a most excellant action movie.  Only a couple small parts were a little cheesy, but that didn't much matter to me.  They were true to the TV show all the way, except no one was ever killed in the TV Series. It had a good story line, good actors, and awesome explosives.

More on the James Farm

I got to place my Pin

Horseshoe believed to have been placed by Frank James from his Favorite Horse "Dan" but also believed it could have been from a Mule.... No one knows for sure.
There I am Standing on the porch of the James Farm.  It was a cool feeling, one because I have waited a long time to get up to St. Joseph to see it, and 2nd, because you know the James Boys stood there and looked across the land, just as i was.

I believe her name was Liz, the most awesome Historian ever.  She took her time and answered all my questions and filled me with interesting facts, and some handed down family stories that may or may not be true, and she let that be known, just saying what the family stories were.  For example, she pointed out the farm next door, and said it was widely known that a Pinkerton was staying over there spying on the James Farm.  When the Pinkertons Threw the bomb into the James Farm house, which left mother James, Zerelda with a stub for an arm, and 8 year old son dead.  The James Boys went over to see the other farm owner who had several daughters.  The story went, The farmer tried to get the James boys into the house, thinking they wouldn't shoot him in front of the women,  before they got to the house, I believe she said, according to family stories, Frank shot the farmer 3 times in the head. 
Good shot of the old part of the house, on the left,  the newer part is on the right, after Jesse's Time.  They left a portion of the back of the house un-finished so you could imagine what it looked like way back when.

Smithville Lake Missouri

This was at the Crows Creek Campground looking out over Smithville Lake in Missouri.  It really was a nice campground,  and i had some time to kill before the James Farm Museum Opened.
