Good Evening Everyone!
Just coming up for air, I apologize for my hasty retreat back to Dallas yesterday. I had a very important date with Halle for a church fall festival and Sheila and I were volunteering so I had to be there by 4:45. Given the fact that Sheila hadn't seen me for four days, I figured I had better be on time.
Sure enjoyed seeing everyone and I owe more thank you's than I could express in a week. Larry and Kevin, who always have my back, really got a workout this weekend, thank you!! Glenn/Nadya and David experienced stark boredom punctuated by brief moments of terror Tested in the crucible they proved to be invaluable team members as well as faithful friends,. I could not have accomplished what I did without your skills, in, and out of the airplane, thank you!
Thanks too to everyone who came distances long and short, I enjoyed my time with each and all of you, brief as it might have been. A special thanks to our Ladies who add a very dear dimension to the group. To Jo for the calm and caring way she has of bringing me back from the edge, I value your friendship greatly. To Nadya who sensed that I was twisted up like safety wire over the challenges and obstacles we faced surrounding our air to air mission, that pat and squeeze on my arm as we ripped through the early morning sky in the Bonanza meant more than you could know, thank you. Again to Glenn and David, for rising to the occasion when our goal looked all but impossible, your diligence and skill made us look like heroes to two clients/friends who are very important to me, thank you, thank you, thank you.
Sorry we missed our fun at HQ Thursday, hope what we had set up at AFW made up for that hiccup, just too much to focus on to pull off our normal Thursday gathering.
I don't think my good friend Debra Hale visits our little conversation here, but I consider it a privilege to partner up with her for this event and lend what assistance I am able. Debra is generally being pulled a dozen directions, but she makes it look easy, and somehow always has time to see that I am warm/cool, watered, fed, sun screened in the midst of it all. As my head hit the pillow last night I found myself thinking of, and thankful for all of you. Why, I even forgave Erich for snagging the last Hard 8 pork chop right out from under my nose......... Hope everyone is home safe and sound and that you enjoyed the weekend. I didn't get to see nearly enough of Jan Arie's infectious smile, but it cheers me every time I picture it, safe home Jan, thanks for making the trek.
