Saturday afternoon my eldest son called me at work (yeah it was my weekend at work - yuck) all excited that he saw what he thought was a B-29 fly over while he was at a friends house. This friend lives near the airport that hosts the local EAA chapter so I quickly checked the website and told him it was probably not the only flying B-29 because it was not in the state but it could have been one of the B-17's that they have at chapter events. He was thoroughly excited and could not wait to go see it after church on Sunday.

Since I had to work I gave him my old camera and asked him to bring back plenty of pictures and tell me all about it. I put the camera on program mode and told him to raise the flash if needed. He came back with a big smile and a CF card full of WWII history. It turns out that it was a B-17F that was used in the movie 'Memphis Belle'. I think he did OK considering it was a nasty overcast day with gusty winds, a thunderstorm moving in and the fact that he is twelve.

Memphis Belle by Geaux Jr:



Now that is something to be proud of

Jr did very well, both in spotting it & knowing it was out of the ordinary plus with the prop blur.

An announcer on "Great Homes" was talking about similar flooring in a very expensive home as "hand carved and hand laid". I could only afford the machine carved floor, but it is hand laid!

Thanks Wrei. I installed machine scraped planks at HQ and I love the floor. More and more builders, even at the high end are going to that ever improving pre-finished product. This home is 1.4M and the flooring is pre-finished.


There's something to be said for machine-made stuff: overall consistency and error tolerances get better and better as technology improves. I had the wooden furniture for my office custom-made by a perfectionist carpenter in Guatemala and it would have been both easy and cheap to get the flooring planks done there as well, since we shipped a full 20' container of stuff.

But I hate squeaking floors, and I appreciated the interlocking tongue-and-groove setup of the machine-made stuff. So we got machine-made mahogany planks and glued them to the floor, then nailed them for a belt-and-suspenders approach. Love 'em.

Thank you!

It depends on what you want to shoot aviation wise. Plenty of things to see and shoot. Send me a PM and we can talk there.

Arrrgh... my Model S has arrived in Miami, three weeks ahead of schedule, and I'm in Guatemala until tomorrow night. Gotta wait another 48 hours before seeing the new addition to my family.

Happy Birthday Glenn, hope you have something cool lined up to shoot on your day! It's going to be an outstanding sunset and the air will be incredible.

I'll be hosing down sidewalks and driveways in McKinney, completing #4 out of 7.

Wonder what those sidewalks would look like with a couple of these in the front yard? (But then you don't have to worry about that grass stuff we fuss about either!)

Hi Ya'll:
Thanks for taking to time to wish me a happy one!. My Bonanza pilot decided vacationing with his woman in Hawaii was more important than an a2a on my birthday so I had to find something else cool to shoot, which isnt too hard around here!

Spent the day chasing the girls around the skatepark. 38 years young and barely keeping up with a 5 year old.



Got a skate board for my birthday so hopefully you wont be visiting me in the hospital soon..

My goodness, do I ever see Nadya in your daughter's face, Glenn! Happy birthday, you're a lucky man.

And take care: those skateboards are way scarier than flying acro.

You are in for a real treat, Rodolfo: since my S landed in the garage I've had a permagrin etched on my face.
