First I know I am behind in the times in the fact that I didn't even know we have a Texas Air & Space Museum here in Amarillo. How have I not known about this? I asked a co-worker if he knew this. That made me feel worse because not only did he know he has actually been out there.

So I have a task. I need to head out to it and check it out. The museum is near the Rick Husband International Airport. You can find it at 10001 American Drive here in Amarillo. So now that I know this is a thing the next thing is they are having a story time along with a lot of other great stuff.
