I forgot to mention the cute picture of Andy with his sports coat and pretty shirt with the collar hanging out. It is in his ad on page 19.

I got mine! Fantastic. Some specialty magazines are just ads, but this one's great. There's really a lot of content to read in there. A little something for everyone. Great job, Rich and the gang!

Read it cover to cover. . .

and enjoyed it all. I especially liked the range of articles from the 90+ year old builder of the early AS to the Q/A article to the travel piece on Wyoming Crow Country. I had been thinking of recommending a story about keeping travel journals since I do--and had just been through the task of selecting a new one because my original was too full for this summer's trips--when I found two stories in the first issue connecting to travel journals! I thought the quality of the writing and of the editing was high, higher than I expected, high enough to make me look forward to the next issue. In fact, I found myself wondering how the editors of the magazine would keep this up on a continuing basis. Is AS lore deep enough? I guess time will tell, but this first issue shows good promise and I'm glad I sent in our subscription early

22180! 22180! Nada, nada, nada! Vienna, the boring VA one, not cool Austria (yes, I do get occasional emails in German that I have to put through Google language tools to kinda fathom). But back to AS life-- subscribed last winter--still waiting!

I am very impatient. Well, impatient for things like really cool retro stuff. That and really good ice cream. And may I add, NOT impatient for the following:

1. Unpaid scope creep from clients (if you do consulting, you'll understand)
2. Rust on my frame that cancels going to the vintage rally in CO.
3. Wearing a full respirator to do fiberglass repair on the A/S tub. Mind you, don't actuall mind the fiberglass repair. Was cool when I was a carefree teen in the (OSHA-free) days working on my boat--but that respirator makes me feel like I'm going to suffocate. But. by a wierd technical twist, I don't. But I feel like it.

Ok, I 'm rambliing... Darlingest A/S Life guy, who is presently enjoying the high life at the International whilst I slave over requirements inventories, please send me this or I shall wither--slowly, though, since I do get the VAC maggie.

Please save m!. I have read Wally's book by ILL. I am convinced that he read one too many Morgenthau essays (that hokey, but indellibly optomistic person to person democracy is the sign).

But one thing Wally would never predict is that A line skirts are the modern woman's blessing and slaked off to the side and worn with vintage panache, berets (even blue ones) are downright cool and sexy (sorry guys, harvester/baseball hats are soooo 2002)! I only pray that somehow, by some slip of chance, he once walked through or gazed at my '61.

I sputter too silly, inspired by the girlfriends over and envy...AS life envy! Mind you, the gals have total A/S envy inspired by the silver toaster here...

BTW--Next week will be Wally's 98th Birthday (as I understand). Must go to International in 2 yrs.

We got it too!

Good job Rich! I especially enjoyed the article on the torpedo. Just wish it were longer. We read it all and now we have to wait how long for the next issue??....

The longer the wait... more pages please.
