|This mahogany door used to be our front door for many years. It had been sitting in our garage for the last 3 or 4 years taking up much needed space. We tried selling it and even tried giving it away, but had no takers. I was looking at Pinterest one night and saw some pictures of old doors that people had used in their gardens. I had seen garden gates, but never a garden door. I asked my hubby, Terry if he thought our old door would fit in the opening of our garden arbor. If anyone could make this happen, I knew he could. A couple of weeks later, here is the finished project. Terry built the frame, I painted it and we both hung the door, which was a pain in the butt. Recently we added some solar lights to either side of the door. Thank you to Terry for making my garden door idea a reality. This is the view looking toward our garden.|

|Pretty neat, eh?|

During our recent vacation in Tybee Island, Georgia, me and Terry visited the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum in Pooler, Georgia. If you have never visited this museum, please do. You won’t be disappointed. I took tons of photos in the museum, too many to post. I’m going to post the pictures that pertain to my dad’s service.
I would like to dedicate this blog post to my dad, Flynn Mabry, who served in the Mighty Eighth in Thorpe Abbots, England during WWII. He served in the 100th bomb group, 350th bomb squadron as a B-17 mechanic as part of the ground crew. Thank you for your service, dad! I love you and miss you always!
|Major General Lewis E. Lyle Rotunda. The rotunda is named in honor of the Museum's founder who flew 75 bombing missions over Europe during WWII , never losing a single man.|
Flags from all 50 states are displayed in the rotunda of the museum. If you look closely you can see the Tennessee state flag.
Flags of each bomb group and squadron are displayed in the rotunda as well. This is the flag of the 100th bomb group also known as The Bloody Hundredth.

The Chapel of the Fallen Eagles. The first time we visited the museum 10 years ago, we didn't go into the chapel.
