Epicurean Critique: Good Fellowship at CR

Pam Shearer writes:
Had a reservation at Circle R for a Thanksgiving dinner. Had family in from out of town. Unfortunately, no TURKEY, but good fellowship. - Pam Shearer
Know what you mean: I didn't have a reservation, but when I decided to have turkey, later last night, I was too late; but met so many of the nicest people there who were all singing the praises of the turkey they had. But ordering from the menu was even better. Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wings with blue cheese and a side salad. It is my new Thanksgiving Dinner. It was more than I could eat, and I saved money. - EW

JIM: Report in 1908 of Mr. Sam Lewis and his airship

By Jim

I stumbled across this wee gem while researching another topic and thought it might be of interest to you. It appeared in the December 9, 1908 News in the "Personal" column. -jim
"Mr. Sam Lewis occasionally makes flying trips, being the only owner in town of an airship. He left here Monday morning of last week; went to Nashville, Chattanooga, Mobile and Atlanta, transacting business in all those cities, returning Tuesday night following. He is very fond of navigating the air." - Adair County News
Thanks, Jim: Indeed, this dramatically changes what many of us knew about the history of flight in Adair County. It would be nice to have a photo or other corroboration of the facts in the item - then maybe a historical marker. - CM
