My intro to the blogosphere was Lawdog’s “you might be a ….” Kelly’s essays on Bitchy Partner and the antics of sumdude were so close to home I had to not read for a while, but I couldn’t stay away.
There were others, offering humor, compassion, information, insight, and opening doors into their lives for others to share, if they would.
Within minutes of my first post Wing and a Whim and Old NFO both were encouraging me. Don’t you guys sleep?
There is so much that I feel but not room to print it all.
Thank you all. Dan

Spent three weeks with number one son doing things that go better when you’re not trying to do them alone. Slept well, ate good food, partied with some good people, went to Meecham airport to visit the flying museum there. WOW. The only flying super fortress, as I understand it, was there, a PBY, a B 17 G,- I crawled through the waist of one once, grease would have helped! Way more aircraft than I can mention here. If you are into warbirds or the history of WW Two, well…
Spent more money than I should have, tried to wear out my welcome. Left Ft. Worth @ 7 pm, arrived Eastern Iowa the next 7 pm. Caught a little nap along the way and took time to look up Amelia Earhart Airport in Atchison, Ks. Yeah, I’ve been down the Yellow Brick Road, too. I like Kansas.
Anyhow, Good Time with son, long overdue, back home to catch up on things here. Daughter is due with number 3 in a couple of weeks. Went vacationing with one of the others, number two son, and his offspring last summer for two weeks, had a blast then too. The youngest acts like he’s done shopping. He could do a lot worse. Isn’t family astounding.
Got up before the alarm did. Made it to church in time. I like being in My Father’s House. Visited at a new to me church. My oldest went along. It’s been a long time since we went to worship and praise God together. Met a good bunch of believers. Talked to the other offspring, gonna relax for the remainder of the day. Maybe.
Happy Father’s Day
Today, I met a young MAN. There are various and numerous standard by which to measure such things, and we use different combinations to assess the subject. We have all met youngsters we shake our heads over as we go on with our daily lives, wondering how they will ever manage to live long enough to mature and become productive and useful to the human race. Some won’t, most will, to lesser or greater extent, depending on the level of care and nurturing bestowed by various mentors.
Today’s subject exhibited a level of industry and an attention to detail that caught one’s eye. He avoided such distractions as my feeble attempts at conversation and stayed with his task. I later met his mother and discovered the source of his training and inspiration. Still later, when I commented on him to his dad I could see the pride in his son in his smile.
One wonders if we all put just a small amount of time and effort into each child we encounter in the above noted daily lives, how many more young men or young ladies society could produce.
