"Truth, Justice and the American Way" (quote on the Superman statue)

Are you a Superman fan? As a kid my big brother was always really into superheros, so I guess it really rubbed off on me, because my love for them is there as well. I love Star Wars, Spiderman, all those cool movies, never been a fan of Star Trek. I mean I can appreciate it, but I don't love it, like I LOVE STAR WARS ...but we are talking SUPERMAN. I remember the old version from the 50's played by George Reeves (no relation to Christopher Reeves, who played the part 1978) was my fave. I've always had a love for black and white films. Maybe that's part of why I enjoy it more??! No clue??!?!?!??!!! I hope that soon this group who do own this museum will find the ability to move this museum to a larger space, it was busting that the seams with all these amazing items, but the lighting was not that great? I don't know about you, but I enjoy getting closer to check everything out, lots of dust and you couldn't see all the memorabilia that well??! Extremely tough to share with you guys, maybe bring your own lighting folks with you if you check it out??! Please don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, and only wish I had gotten a WONDER WOMAN bandanna while there, I regret that daily!!! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well!!! Take Care, Be Well & Be Blessed. Beth ( ;

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
