Lindbergh & swatch

Did you know that Charles Lindbergh made his very first solo flight in Americus, Georgia? Apparently he roadtripped on down there to pick up a used WWI plane cheap. He stayed around for a bit and had about 20 hours of flight instruction. He did hang out for about a week to practice his take offs and landings. The solo flight at Souther field happened in May 1923 and it was just four years later that he made his famous flight from New York to Paris in the Spirit of St. Louis. Of course there is a monument in his honor.

Any guesses about what I swatched for on my day trip to the backwoods south?

Does this swatch have anything to do with your fair project?

Great swatch!

So...are there rumors about any Lindberg love children down there? (there was some article about a few Lindberg children in Europe whom he fathered while he was over there).

Valerie, you've hit the nail on the head. Colleen, LOL! No, I can't say I've heard any of the rumors but, of course, I'm not from around here.

I have no idea what you swatched for, but I bet it's going to be something good.
