Lynn, please don't confuse us with that American Hero! A great leader and pilot.

Oh, the Lab and the Shepherd were only out for a little while. They think they are lap dogs so we put them out during the photo.

Reads like a very serious accident with 120 patrons inside plus the crew. Praying the responders work safely to help the victims.

With no aircraft on which to to try out my 500mm F4, I went for the next best thing. 500mm + 1.4 extender + 7D (effectively 1120mm) resting on the hide window ledge. Getting better, now I need a good monopod+head to go after bigger flying prey - suggestions welcomed

My daughter asked me to take an engagement photo with her, her fiancÚ and their Aussie. This is what we came up with.

Congratulations to the happy couple! The dog seems OK with it, too.

Gorgeous Aussie, Steve. I'm on my second - first one was a black tri and the current is a red merle. Beautiful and intelligent creatures. Your daughter's dog seems to be giving the "I'm watching you" look

But more importantly, congratulations on your daughter's engagement

Thanks, Jim. She's marrying a really nice guy; it makes me happy.

Apropos of nothing in particular (it's what I'm working on this morning), here's a stereo pair from the foothills of the Appenines, south of Modena.

Anyone watch Garth Brooks' final concert at The Wynn? I can't believe that I never took Sheila to see that live. I shot the Wynn every two weeks during the construction, what a cool place. Garth and I spent a couple of days together in Scottsdale in the mid 90's, a true humble gentleman, always made it a point to make someone else in the room the center of attention. Just what you would expect from a guy out of Stillwater OK. The story behind his three year stint at the Wynn is pretty incredible, but his performances there were even more so, every show was sold out, just an Okie and his guitar, no band, no nothin'.

We were out at a celebrity golf tournament one of the days and I was Garth's photographer. We hit it off from the get go and began bantering and horsing around. Being a buff, I asked him what he flew in on the day before, "America West" he said. He was worth an estimated 250M at the time. So the banter began, "America West?!" I said. He laughed and said, "those private jets are really expensive", I looked at him and said, "Garth, 250M and counting.................just saying'! He cracked up and told me that he was a little spooked by how many music stars had met their demise in private aircraft. Reba's band went down around that time, and the list is long for sure. He got over that because Steve Wynn picked him up and flew him home every day from his gig at The Wynn, for three years, it was part of the deal because he wanted to make sure he didn't miss a single one of his family events.

Today, after a mound of paperwork was behind me, I rolled the Cub out for an hour or so. Just too beautiful a day not to slip the bonds. A historic moment at KTKI, I actually purchased fuel for the first time in 20 some years. Since the city bought out a partner, the fuel is within 30 cents of anywhere close by, and they really want piston aircraft business. The whole atmosphere has changed. They are going to like what we're going to be flying in the near future as well, but it's nice that they want the little guy's business again. The last three decades at KTKI anyone driving a piston knew that they were nothing but a nuisance.

As I pulled the Cub back into the hangar I noticed that I had shut it down at 340TT on the hobbs, every minute of those hours has been pure fun.
