Roaming Around the Base

(Maxwell AFB, Montgomery, AL) Hi 78 Lo 48 -- It was chilly this morning. We almost had to turn on the fireplace for a while, but we didn't. The day warmed up nicely to the high 70's. It was a perfect day to roam around the base. It's really pretty here with all the stucco buildings. The main mission of this base is education. It almost looks like a college campus. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

Officers housing.

There were a lot of static displays of older aircraft around the base.

The main building of the Air War College, which is the top level of officer education in the Air Force.

We stopped at the commissary to pick up a few items. It's one of the nicest commissaries we've seen, very large with a huge selection of food. After a bite of lunch at the Exchange Food Court we returned home. Jim watched the Cardinals baseball game and I played games on the computer. We have a decent wi-fi signal here in the park so I can catch up on some videos I've received in emails, and also some Youtube videos.

It's been awhile since we grilled, so Jim cooked up a steak for himself and a chicken breast for me. For dessert we had grilled pineapple slices. We peeled and sliced a whole pineapple, dipped the slices in butter and brown sugar, then lightly cooked them on the grill.  YUMMY!

With it being the Easter season, I thought I'd share these cute photos that I received in an email.

The comments don't seem to be working, but I do get them on emails. Here's a few that didn't go thru.

It feels good to add another state to the map.

That's a very nice looking campsite for a military base. Have fun-be safe.

I remember shopping at the commissary. That was a long long time ago. Looks like a lot of fun.

Happy Easter to you and Jim. Looks like a nice base you are staying at. The Pineapple sounded delicious.

Yummy -- that pineapple sounds awesome! We're going to have to try that.
