A visit aboard the LST-325

The LST-325 docked for tours at Madison, Indiana on 09/14/2013.  This LST (Landing Ship, Tank) was used on D-Day +1 to offload tanks, trucks, jeeps, and troops at Omaha Beach and to transport injured soldiers back to England for care.  It was utilized in Korea & Vietnam before being decommissioned and sold to the Greek government.  When the Greeks were ready to scrap it, it was purchased by a group of veterans who have worked to restore her as she was during World War II.  Her home port is Evansville, IN, but she sails during the summer so that others may board her and explore a piece of history.

Our new table!

I decided yesterday that I hated our dining room table, so we went and got a new one today.

Here’s Tim looking exceptionally excited about having to unload everything and then put it all together. (I felt like a dork driving home with the box tied to the top of my HHR, but the danged thing wouldn’t fit inside!!!!)

It takes up our whole dining room and I love it!
