BCN Holiday Bazaar

We went to the Holiday Bazaar at the Beavercreek Church of the Nazarene last weekend and got to enjoy all the crafts and goodies.

A few of our favorite vendors were:

  • Honor Flight RVC – Incredible wooden pieces crafted to benefit the Honor Flight RV Convoy program that offers an alternate method of traveling to Washington, D.C. for WWII, Korean War and Vietnam veterans who choose not to fly.
  • KenKare Jewelry & Crafts – beautiful and unique handcrafted earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and more made by a mother-daughter team.
  • Singapore Seahorse – beautiful jewelry made using ancient coins from around the world.
  • Hook & Needle Creations – so many bags and totes of all sizes and with prints to fit everyone’s taste – fandoms, florals, geometric, paisley, etc..
  • Paper Dreams by Terry – so many amazing paper goods such as gift card envelopes, gift boxes, candy bar sleeves, and cute magnets made out of Scrabble tiles!

Jeff P. Schmitt, 1954-2018

For many years, Jeff Schmitt has been a local celebrity. Although we never met him in person, we did briefly meet his son Jay, who worked at Sam Goody at the mall in 2003. Through meeting Jay and living in the Dayton area, it felt as if we knew Jeff Schmitt in a small way.

Recently, Jeff Schmitt passed away (his obituary). While at lunch, he suffered a heart attack that eventually led to his passing. Jeff had suffered some health issues in recent years, including needing a new kidney, which he received from his son Jay.

Dayton Sights: Wright Brothers Benches

It wasn’t luck that made them fly; it was hard work and common sense; they put their whole heart and soul and all their energy into an idea and they had the faith.” – David McCullough, The Wright Brothers

There are reportedly nine identical benches sculpted by David Evans Black, located all around the Dayton area. On the edge of the seat on the front, it reads, “Dedicated to the immortal spirit of Daytonians Orville and Wilbur Wright…” and continues on the back seat-edge with, “whose gift of powered flight lifted our world forever skyward.” The bench is designed to be reminiscent of the bench shown in the famous photograph of the Wright brothers’ first flight.

Magee Park: J. Buckley

Another urban legend from Ohio’s Sleepy Hollow.

As the urban legend goes, John (also sometimes listed as James) Buckley was a rich man living along the banks of Possum Run Creek (now Little Sugar Creek). One night, his cabin was broken into and he was decapitated as thieves tried to find his buried treasure, and his ghost still haunts the creek looking for his head.

Is this story true? Did this really happen?

Well, yes and no.
