    Gone For Good

    Politics influences all that we do, and even the influences governing our flying bugs. I've enjoyed being a member of this group, but I can build my plane without it... just fine. I've also been here for the friendship and even some of the arguments that help us make decisions and open our...

    Space Force?

    Yes boys and girls... we will be known as the (drum roll) Guardians of the Galaxy ... so now that we are clear on this proposed new program by 2020 they say, I want the plans for a 1/2 scale Millinnium Falcon ... the heck with these spruce planes!

    Space Force?

    There's a design contest going on for the new SF logo... meanwhile our bridges are crumbling all over the country... actually the war department was keen on financing the first airplanes that could drop bombs on people which began with the Wright brothers seeking government (War Department)...

    Space Force?

    Or is that Space Farce? I guess this is aviation related, being rockets and stuff... I wonder who's going to pay for this lunacy? Oh I know, we'll make the Martians pay for it... Please don't tell me there is anyone in here who thinks this is a good idea? Unbelievable...

    I don't know anyone with disposable income and the amount of poor asking for food help has certainly increased in the past couple of years. Where we shop anyway... there are no jobs here unless you work for the federal government. And those are disappearing... I had some disposable income until...

    Okay but I'd still rather be huddled over a hot stove on cold night in France with Marie Antoinette. ;) And I'll back this up by saying that when people look at my website, or visit my shop they usually ask why I enjoy building French guitars from the early 1800's... because it was a time of...

    Yeah sorry, let's stay on topic... small airports are disappearing, FBO's are folding Cessna is nearly broke, there are far more homebuilt projects for sale than are being completed, I think I just traded one of my guitars that I built for a nearly completed Taylor Monoplane... the skies are...

    We care more about money, honors, fame, glory, recognition, entertainment, physical gratification and a myriad of other things than we do about enlightenment, spirituality and peace in our lives. Yet even when we are satiated with the good things in life we often find ourselves feeling empty...

    Our farrier (his name is Boots) gives me the winter weather forecast given to him by his grandmother who lives at Little Water. He told me she can tell how cold it will be and how much snow there will be by looking at the height of the prairie grass. In 10 years I've known Boots she's not been...

    I was reminded a few hours ago (as if I need reminded) why this time in history is the worst I've ever known... I delivered a few ukuleles that I repaired for Indian Hills Elementary school... when I got to the school there have been installed four sets of locked double doors at the entrance...

    Will do thanks! I've spent time in northern OK and as I recall there are mostly Creek there. Opothle Yahola: Muscogee (Creek) Chief circa 1800's Cherokee to the south OK Ponca around the OKC area, I think.

    I'm heading to your neck of the woods in the not too distant future, I'd sure like to meet you. I suppose since I have two adopted daughters from China and live on the edge of the Navajo Nation, both girls speaking Navajo now, I have a different view of things like Columbus... I have many Navajo...

    I've walked on this spinning nut house for nearly 70 years and this is the worst I've ever seen it... (that includes my stint looking for the remains of pilots off the shores of Vietnam) but I can endure this insane era because we live far from the madding crowds and I don't have to put up with...
