Good to hear from you, FaN, and to know you are alive and well.

Hope that whatever is pending for you goes thru.


Maggie

Biplane rebuild

Hi FaN, Is the restored biplane going to make it to the EAA fly in in Oshkosh, Wisconsin next year? If it is i will for sure capture its photo, for I will be there for a week.

Busy is good....

FaN, that will be a hoot. The families of JST Hall DSC, Lloyd Breadner and others from Naval 3 will be cheering you on. Good luck. Jim

I could have put this post in a few places but usually come here when I can't make a decision. Seems safe. Friday afternoon I started out for Can Am because I needed a part. Problem was I could not remember what part. So I detoured and went to the boat launch in Owen Sound where I got a good boon dock in on Friday night. Also some Chinese food at a very busy Channing's restaurant. Owen Sound was the home of Billy Bishop and FaN there is a nice little museum in town. Also, for Canadian Art lovers, Tom Thomson was born in Owen Sound and there is a nice Art Gallery there with his paintings. Just down the road on the outskirts of Chatsworth, one finds the homestead of Nelly McLung. Nothing there but a plaque and evidence that they drew a real nasty piece of land. Field stones everywhere. While boon docking my head cleared and I remembered what part I needed. Two Burner assemblies for the cook top. We were down to one and coffee is a necessity. So on Saturday we drove cross country to Can Am for parts. Busy place. Ran into MrUKToad who was dropping off his Airstream for its annual hibernation. Went toFifty Point for Saturday night. I thought that I was going to winterize but it is just too nice out so will delay until next week end. Jim

I think this is a good place, Jim.


FaN.....the ladies are gathering in Wyoming the end of August 2016, instead of the west coast. Would love for you to join us.

Ladies in Wyoming?

When and where? Is this open to all?

It is open to all, Tommie!

We ladies were talking about it yesterday on my thread...having brunch together, of a sorts.

FaN had suggested a Shirley Valentine gathering on the west coast, where I tentatively planned to be next summer, but I am not going to do that as I want to get to Alumalina next fall, and it would just be too much.

Looking at the end of August, somewhere near the Tetons in Wyoming, as Gail and I will be in that area for Ray Eklunds boondocking adventure which commences August 14th for 10 days or so.

I don't know that Gail is doing the boondocking, and in fact think she is not, but she is coming to Wyoming and we are going to meet up somewhere in there.

Not doing a rally thread, as it will not be that formal, will just coordinate it on mine.

Join us!! And, help me get FaN there!


Maggie

Grand Tetons....

This is about a 2050 mile pull, one way. But, if it works out, fits in with my schedule, I think it is certainly possible....but only if FaN agrees to pull from her local......

I suspect the photo ops are as good as ever!

Hi Everyone! Sorry I haven't been around much - just too many things going on - like organizing/making the table decor for a WW1 themed fundraiser so we can get to Vimy in 2017. Do you know how long it takes to make about 200 feet of faux barbed wire? What a job that was.



Jim, thanks for the report on Owen Sound, Billy Bishop, and the museum there. Now I want to visit!

Maggie, Wyoming sounds great. I would love to be there. Will do everything to make that wish a reality.

MsMoto, we won't be able to make Oshkosh, but hope to fly it across to Canada next year as a lead-up to Vimy Ridge in 2017.

And on this day of Remembrance, the frame is well underway.....

Maggie, thanks. It was a lot of work, but it was my way of contributing to the memory of those who had served.

Yesterday (November 11th) was a day of memory, profundity.....and disappointment. The public was invited to view our warbirds and hangar (which was adorned with those little paper poppies) but few showed. Yet, the mall parking lots were jammed. (I think we should have fired-up our water bomber and given them all a good drenching).

What's wrong with people?

Those of us who are veterans, and the parents of active duty service members do remember. Our army son in Hawaii made a visit to the Missouri and the Arizona yesterday, out of respect for those who served before him.

Rich, ex-Navy DS1, served from 1967-1976.

The list is long FaN, but then there are a whole lot like Rich's son who continue to lead by example, most likely following the example set by their parents. I hope your hanger is crowded next year. Jim

I also should note that my middle son did call me on veteran's day to see how I was doing. Yeah, we tried to raise them right. All three are Eagle Scouts, and doing well. Youngest is an Army Major, nurse anesthetist and on his way up.
