    The state of our (dying) sport 2022

    Good job . I feel sorry for kids that grow up in an environment that lacks in parenting . If ya don't know anything that can be passed on , what would be the excuse for having children . Dumb butt seeds fall from dumb butt trees . I was extremely fortunate to come from a family that made sure...

    The state of our (dying) sport 2022

    My last job that launched my retirement was for the US Government , building bombs . I've crawled around inside the MOAB's and MOPS's prepping for fill .

    Folks , $100K was a good bit of money back in the early 1980s when this was attempted . I don't know when Mr. Thompson passed away but he was a fairly old gentleman when I met him and that was 40 or so years ago . A great deal of the time death gets in the way of possibilities . Who knows what...

    What would you do with a plane you built, but do not want anymore?

    I would beat it together as fast as possible , sell it to someone that knows nothing about flying , but thinks they do , and send a winning ticket to my X wife for the Premiere Sweepstakes Grand Prize first ride in it , worth $1,000.00 , and cross my fingers , watch the News and drink Beer ...

    Ask a youngster to point N , S, E, or W . Then ask them to show ya something on a Cell phone . Better yet , go to your local parts store . The younger generation is Computer smart but totally street and common sense or experience DUMB . Who's fault . Look no further than the mirror . The...

    Never seen anyone thrown out of or not invited to a Forum or presentation at OshKosh in my 42 years . Maybe they need to start offering freebies . Best I remember there used to be activities and presentations of different types for women and children . to attend if they would be bored with the...

    What Did You Do To Save General Aviation Today?

    Worked on my wife's ElCamino that I just bought her . Changed engine and transmission , installing aftermarket air condition system , and new carpet and seat covers . I know that it's all auto related but if I don't finish her little hot rod , my personal airplane project might take a big hit ...

    Off topic, thinking about today.

    Clint Eastwood once said (Man's got to know his Limitations) . You've apparently done well but now's the time to not doo anything stupid . Complacency can cause a need for a Rope . I been married 50 years but it took 5 Wives . I think Clint heard about me before his statement . Congratulations ...

    To the OP . Ever give any consideration to what time the photo was taken ? If it was in the morning , most younger folks were probably still in the fart sack , (male , female , black , white) doesn't matter . This is not to mention , these presentations are not an ideal place to park your nose...
