Pam, I doubt that.....show us a pic with one of your planes.....

Hey, we need a pic of Bruce, too.........It's always nice (IMO) to have a face to put with a name.

Meh, we're all getting on, I'm 46... ALREADY!!!

I read this somewhere...

The idea of living is not to turn up at the pearly gates, calm and collected in a pristine body...
The idea is to screech up to the gates sideways in a cloud of smoke, battered, bruised and scraped.
Then walk up to the desk and look Peter in the eye and say "HOLY CRAP! WHAT A RIDE!!!"

Snakebite, you're right! Just don't do it at too young an age!

Okay I'll see what I can do about a photo.....Well I was wondering when Roddie the grand Daddy of us all was going to chime in; But let me tell you guys something, I had the pleasure of meeting him last year and for some one that was born when the first PBY's were being built he looks like he's in his 50's, and still travels the world.

Snakebite...I'm quite sure when I show up at the pearly gates there won't be any question about the ride I had, I'm just trying to take care of what's left of my body.

And see if I can still paddle this canoe at Roddie's age.

Well, at least I can't die young....I'm 73...And you guys are right- it's valuable time- don't waste it wishing you had DONE something.....just do it.

The way my brakes are, I don't know if I CAN slide up to the pearly gates...but they'll know I'm there, just the same, as I go crashing through.

Bruce-let me buy you lunch at Wendy's in North East when you go by, on your way to Elk Neck State Park. North East is my home town.

I don't have any photos of me with a plane...remember the stuka is the first plane I have built in 30 years. plus I am not a fan of having my photo taken......all I have is a few photos from like work functions and some social functions.

Okay guys and gals here I am this morning covered in dust putting the final sand on the canoe.

I'll hit it one more time w/ 220 grit then have to sweep and vac up all the dust then drop cloth under the canoe and get ready for resin.

I told myself enough is enough it's just a canoe it will look just fine on the big lake.

I don't think you give yourself very much credit Pam; you look very nice in that photo.

Okay the shop is clean drop cloth is down going in for the start of the glassing.

Pam, are you kidding???
The only way you'd look better is if your were holding a plane

Must have been fun racing the bike. I ride but not like that.
I used to race inboard hydroplanes a while back.........................

Bruce, if sawdust was worth money you'd be wealthy!
