The story is from The Virginia Museum of History and Culture and has many wonderful images, stories and facts. I have been to Virginia on many occasion and can attest to its inner beauty!

This is from the youtube section Deno’s has, on the particular video #10: Charles Denson, director of the Coney Island History Project, talks about the Wonder Wheel, Coney Island, and the inventions of Leonardo da Vinci. While writing his book on the history of the Wonder Wheel, he came across some amazing connections between Da Vinci and Coney Island. Denson says that many of Da Vinci’s 15th century mechanical drawings resemble rides in Coney Island, but there’s one machine that he invented that stands out among the others: Da Vinci’s design for a Perpetual Motion Machine.
A little blurb about the park: “Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park is a family-owned amusement park located at Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City. It features five adult rides and 16 kiddie rides, including a dozen family rides that parents and children can ride together.”
Images of part of my baseball hat collection: Back Row: NY Penn League official cap High Point Rockers-Inaugural Season, hat was given from a player that was on the table in the locker room.

Greesboro Grasshoppers-One time visit to that area in North Carolina Camden River Sharks-I went with a friend to a game in 2011. The team disbanded the next year.
Front Row: First 2 hats Eastern League All-Star Game Caps- held in Richmond Virginia, home of the Richmond Flying Squirrels Long Island Ducks promo hat with original logo on it. Negro Leaguescap-I met Jimmy Bland of the Indianapolis Clowns. He played for them in the 1960’s. Item purchased at a Wilmington Blue Rocks game, when the team had Negro League day. It was a pleasure to meet and greet some of the players from that era. Most were in their mid to upper 80’s in age and the tales they told about that time was fascinating.

I made some use of my time to take my mind off of this recent pandemic and the stress that goes with it. Aside from other useful time situations (chores and other life things), I organized some of my collectables.
