I have been a busy beaver and it’s only Tuesday

this week I been busy that being said, I decided to Cross off another Item on my Bucket list. Sunday Morning, I was able to book a visit to The Science and Industry Museum in Chicago, Ill. I drove to Chicago on Sunday Night stayed overnight and on Monday I went to see the U-505, the last enemy warship to be captured on the high seas. after the tour that I paid for I than drove back home.arriving at 9:45 PM and was exhausted I slept for 12 hours. 
                                           The U-505 as she sits in the Museum.

in order to enclose the submarine and preserve her in a climate-controlled environment they had to remove the periscopes from the submarine totally as you can see. Prior to her being housed in this environment she sat outside the museum since 1954 when the US Navy donated it to Museum. That donation was driven by Chicago Native Daniel V. Gallery he was also the Commanding Officer of the Task Group 22.3 that captured her.
I learned about this sub when I was 14 and, in the 8th, grade. The 8th grade was an interesting time for me. It was one of growth and discovery.
Today I saw my primary care Doctor Dr.N.Rieley,I weight 255.8 lbs. today. a year ago, at this time I weight 266 lbs. Tomarrow I see my primary care person at the V.A,thursday my therapist appointment and Friday I go and get a vaccination.
