Ladybug plays with Sprinkles

I know what you’re thinking…Why? My thinking is that if somebody took the time to film this, than we must watch.  This type of stuff just cracks me up, why is that Ladybug checking out those sprinkles and what are its plans with them? These are the mysteries of the universe that must be solved.

Well this weekend we have a race out here in California.  If I can find the time I am hoping to head out to the event and maybe get some time on my “James Dean” quickie plane. That plane needs to get back in the air so I think this would be a great time […]
Some of the Images I like

Some of the Images I like

When you are shooting planes all the time, there are some images that are rather cool to see on the disk when you get home.  Some things happen that at the time you think nothing of it, but then you see the picture and you think, wow, I got that.  Here are some images that […]
That settles it, VP gas for me.

That settles it, VP gas for me.

Well now that my Man Clarence Lee said I should buy it, it looks like I am changing my gas for the bigger aircraft.  I was able to check this fuel out a little over a year ago and found it to be very good.  But when the expert gives his opinion you can bet […]

Bigfoot is here :-)

You know, this is about a six- hour drive for me, but it sound very convincing and I think they may have the proof we need.  I never knew that Bigfoot was in California, what a state, we have everything!  I especially what to hear from the person described as “Someone employed at AT&T for 11 […]
