Thank you Colin! Now it's time to see if an old dog can actually learn new tricks.

Fascinating story I came across in my morning reading.

Hi Jerry
If that image is one just by popping your head above the parapet, please pop up a bit higher. I can assure you that you will get a very warm welcome here and all the help you want.

Welcome & greetings from Somerset UK



Your kind remarks gave me my first first laugh of the day. Thank you, sir.

Warm welcome indeed!

Dear Mike, Improve? Those are beautiful, you are nipping at the upper rungs of the craft, keep 'em coming.

Sir Donald, thank you for reminding us. Hats off to the British heroes that have long been our staunchest allies and closest friends.

Dear Laura, thanks for the vote of confidence. The choice came down to the PC12 and the Socata TBM 850. I chose the slower, but roomier PC after researching the two airplanes thoroughly. I figured cruise speeds of 260 to 280 knots would be plenty fast for my missions and the forgiving flight characteristics and stability of the Pilatus would give me the extra margin of safety and confidence that I always look for in an aircraft. This process will be fun!

We have a light northerly flow this morning, very unusual here during the summer. I'm going to fire up the Cub and take advantage of it before the day heats up. Y'all have a wonderful weekend.

Well, "Chuckie" is on her way to Tillamook now and FW190A-8 "White 11" (below) will be joining her "soon."

The prop was turning so slowly as the 190 essentially coasted along that blur was tough to catch, but given the choice between the overall composition and no blur, I chose composition (mainly the way the light was hitting some of the curved surfaces).

So will this then be the start of the nationwide JWA2A tour? I could see there being a market for that easy.

At this rate he is going to need a couple extra hangars

Nice story, Laura. Thanks for bringing it up.

Edit: Top of page, so I might was well briefly mention what I've been up to lately, since I'll be posting one of the few photos I've taken in the last couple of months.

My supervisor, Dick, recently retired after 43 years with our firm. And he's only 61. He meant a lot to many of us, and we needed to find an appropriate parting gift. He and his wife bought a condo with an ocean view on Nantasket Beach in Hull, MA, and he's been telling us that if we need him, he'll be on that beach. He's also fond of saying "The only easy day was yesterday" (although he was never a SEAL). So we decided to combine those two concepts.

In early June I got up around 4am and drove down to Hull a couple of mornings to try and catch a good sunrise. I added a few words and had MPIX print it on Fuji Pearl. Then we all signed the margins. I took my inspiration from Jim's Glenn Smith print.

It came out great, and Dick loved the gesture. Gave me a nice warm feeling that I was able to create something that clearly meant a lot to him. Here's the image:

Thank you Brian, the keeper rate was pretty low, some I wished would have been sharp. But then I would be knowing what I was doing.
