Heritage Park includes exhibits on the mills powered by the river. The park features an original brick kiln. The area is known for its high quality bricks, so evident in the historic buildings of Columbus as well as in the walkways and exhibits at Heritage Park. A favorite exhibit for many is a statue of Dr. John S. Pemberton, the man who gave the South its unofficial drink, Coca-Cola. A one-time Columbus pharmacist, Dr. Pemberton invented Coke and created a company that has been an excellent corporate partner for Columbus, donating large sums to restore one of Dr. Pemberton's houses, to build the city's outstanding Coca-Cola Space and Science Center and to assist with other projects.
It was mentioned that The Beatles started their hits around the 10,000 hours of playing, a violist by last name of Pearlman is expert because 10,000 hour dedicated to playing/practicing thye violin. Then lastly he mentione we can be an expert of scriptures after 10,000 hours which breakdowns to 54 years when read 30 minutes day. It takes time and dedication to be an expert. Are we will to give the time to be an expert.
Satutday after the MS walk, Sydney and I went for a tour of Columbus... Pictures coming. But I had to record this very special event, I finally made it to Dinglewood Pharmacy and had a Scrambled Dog with slaw and Syd had plain dog. Gam-Mommy met us here too. Was a nice treat to have three generations eating at famous Dinglewood.

(I want her to be able to take care of herself and be happy which is how I really feel, but Dentist are my favorite Doc’s to visit. Plus, she flosses and brush her teeth without being reminded at age of eleven)
The story though... While in Daleville, AL for a meeting this week, I drove past a Library. There was a sign that said, "Books for Sale". Knowing how much Sydney loves to read, I thought I couldn't go wrong with getting a few books. I hit the JACKPOT! The books were $0.25 each. I used all my cash that I had which was $16.80 but got $18.00 worth in books. That’s 72 books. (I’ve got summer reading covered.) The Librarian gave me a few of the books in support of another Librarian. During our short conversation while getting the books, I had mentioned that my daughter wanted to be a Librarian when she grew up. Maybe being a Librarian wouldn't be such a bad job.

What they sang and listing of the schools
Sydney and her birthday plate and the bowl she made. The plate says, "Hoppy Birthday" and everyone that was attending put their thumb print on the plate then the staff at Ribits decorated the plate with peace sign, flowers, cupcakes, and ice cream cones. The bowl is what Sydney made at the party.
Finished products of the ceramic birthday party. Many bowls and animals were made by the girls. Aunt Ruth made a Sundae Bowl with spoon, Dad made a chicken, and Gam Mommy made the blue vase. I supervised all of the painting and paid.

"We must be the change we wish to see in the world"
"I pledge allegiance, not thoughtless obedience"
"If only closed minds came with closed mouthes"
"Even people who believed everything is predicated look before they cross the street"
Knowledge from the back of the car in front of us as we were waiting in the drive thru @ Dairy Queen.
