Much too soon it was time for us to get Linda back to Sheffield so she could get her car and return home. A week really does fly by when you are having such a great time.

IMG_6976 On the way back to Sheffield we did make one stop at the Zippo/Case Museum in Bradford, PA. There was a big billboard advertising the museum and we decided Jim really did need a break.

IMG_6978 Their parking lot was not designed for RV’s but we were able to find a parking spot outside the fence.

IMG_6969Really an incredible place showing the history of the Zippo Wind Proof Lighter and Case Knives. The Zippo lighter was invented by George C. Blaisdell in 1932. During WWII all lighters made at the plant in Bradford were sent overseas to our troops.

IMG_6975 Case’s original V-2 Stiletto, used by the First Special Service Force (also known as “the Devil’s Brigade”) remains one of the most sought-after collectibles of WWII.

This lighter was definitely one of Jim’s favorites.IMG_6973
