Hey Chris, I can't wait for next years fly in. Hope we can get some other twistaholics to come... still can't believe they drew my name 5 times in the raffle. No flying yet here, playing trains instead.. off to Vegas after this assignment.

Don't expect it but we may try to drive down there this winter to visit. It just depends on a lot of different things. Yes, next year can't get here fast enough. Second weekend in August if anyone wants to mark their calendars.

I like the other shots too. It is getting cool enough I can start getting out with the telescope again.

Fellas, thank you so much for the pictures of the night sky........the only thing I see that time of day is the inside of my eyelids.

DOG.......that's a great score on the van!! Airplane Hauler II

Waldo....how's that other build coming? (Clancy Aviation)

Kerwin, no chance of another trip, huh? The fall run for many species of fish will be starting soon....as will partridge, early goose, and small game hunting!

Last day of set construction!! Yeah! Waldo, if I find someone that's recording it digitally.......I'll see what I can do about getting a copy.

Haven't been building a thing way too busy for such luxury's we just took our house off the market and are going to try a different agent and company. That would be great to see a vid of the production your involved with and especially all the props you built I'm sure they look fantastic.

MT Those are awesome Pics and does the ISS leave a trail tail like that ? I've never seen the ISS pass by Or at least never knew it was the ISS if it did.

The garden is in full output mode! I leave the house in the morning and in the evening when I return there's twice as many tomatoes ripened! Nothing like a fresh-picked cherry tomato wrapped in a large fresh-picked sweet basil leaf! Mmmmm I could almost become a vegetarian during times like these if it were not for prime rib and of course bacon!

Guys my birthday was yesterday so today my wife asked me if I felt older (56) I told no just much wiser.

O Snowy I never said the trip was off, I was just saying I didn't see any way we could make it up there before the 15th.
Has BP even sent you a shipping notice. Push come to shove I'll send you a brushed speed control for that motor I sent you and that way you can get her in the air .

My corn is as tall as my shin and my tomato plants are so dried up even the rabbits wont eat them. Soybean never made it out the of the ground and at this point when I get home I'm thankfull not for yield, but the fact it didn't catch fire while I was gone.
