Dear Sir Donald,

It's so nice to hear from you following your recent computer difficulties – tricky customers those on / off switches – and so cunningly disguised too, with words like “Power” and “On” - all very confusing.

Now you know very well that I did none of the bad behaviour detailed previously. Everyone knows that lady Grey is far too gracious to mention such things in a public place such as this. Might I suggest a little more study of your “Creative Writing For The Older Gentleman” course material might be in order?

Regarding “.....make the vehicle secure against rouges and vagabonds”, I should point out that doing so would have made it impossible for you to drive your own car.

Regards,

Slow Nick.

(Former Butler to the nobility and gentry. Oh, and single day “minder” to Sir Donald Grey)



Mr Johnson are you inferring that I was telling some untruths and masquerading as Lady Diana? Shame on you sir. I would never step so low as to render my honour and reputation in tatters.

Firstly, my recent computer difficulties was caused by a miscreant rodent that decided to up and die in a most undignified manner, leaving my computer incapacitated until after its funeral and subsequent reincarnation.

With regards to the events of Friday evening that Lady Diana so eloquently and succinctly described, she did refrain from mentioning several of the other alarming and strange events of that evening; We are still perplexed as to how did the statuette of the Goddess Venus have its head exchanged with the garden gnome? And how come the initials ‘NJ’ were deeply scratched on her left buttock? (I refer to the statuette's left buttock, not Lady Diana's)

Can you shed any light on how my zimmer (walker frame) became lodged high up the English Oak tree that you seemed to take a fancy to?

It took ages to untie the ‘I love the Rolling Stones’ banner from the TV antenna especially as we didn’t have a tv antenna in the first place.

Lady Diana has asked me to pass on to Mrs J her deepest sympathies and to say that she fully understands.

Respectfully yours
Sir Donald

To all: Lady Diana & I would like it to be known by all and sundry of the immediate vacancy of Under-Butler with the prospects of being elevated to that of a ‘gentleman’s gentleman’ and companion. The prospective candidate must be of exemplary character, able to look after a gentleman of repute. Be of sober habits. And above all, have a sense of humour.

A special thanks to member, Laura, AKA Night Owl Cat, for showing me around WPAFB and Fairborn, where i was stationed in 1957. I cut my visit a day short, due to a JW religous convention near the base, and my hotel was ful of the noise makers. Laura a class act, and a wealth of avation, photography and computer information. If given the opportunity, see that shes included in your aviation and photography activities.
Thanks Laura

Had to travel north to Ennis/Waxahachie to find the water filled holes Lady Jo!

This one was even deep enough for a boat apparently!

Holy Mackerel! I'm a half dozen pages behind the power curve. Guess I'll begin by being amazed, again, by Glenn's air to air imagery. Chas, what a wonderful experience! Those images of your Dad are just priceless, and I mean priceless! You will both carry the memories of that day with you forever, what a blessing.

Got back to Dallas about an hour ago. Driving that 40' RV with just about everything precious to me sitting in the back is a tremendous responsibility. On the way down I held up really well until just west of Tallahassee. We'd been in fairly heavy rain for five or six hours and then the typical Florida fog started to develop, so I parked and slept for four or five hours, then completed the drive. Coming home we rolled out of Ocala about 6, in fairly heavy rain, and I was fine until just east of New Orleans, then I knew it was time to take a break. Problem is, even though this is a really nice and really big RV, when your tare is six kids and three adults, my snoozing spot ends up to be the captain's chair I just spent 9 hours in. Bottom line is, they are all home safe and sound and that's all that really matters.

Now to reorganize and prepare for the 24 VP's that are flying in for portraits on Wednesday, beginning at 7am.

I had decided not to even attempt going to OSH, even gave my right seat spot away on Butch's King Air yesterday. Then I got this call from JR, "Hey Dad, let's go to Oshkosh and buy some warbirds!" Kind of hard to pass on quality father/son time............................ I'm going to make a quick trip out to The Fighter Factory to take a look at Gerry's B25 later this week, as I recall, it's in beautiful condition. HQ Thursday could be very interesting this year.

Nice way to make an entrance! I like Tigercats

Oh and Jim?


Edit: The man said 'warbirds'. Plural. And we all know B-25s need something to chase them.... Right?
