Hillbillie,

You got it my friend!


I'll be there with a bunch of neat toys to share, and 'splain why our cases are the best!

LOL!! Well just to date myself... I grew up in the Texas panhandle - Amarillo and I can remember when gasoline sold for $.07 (That's right - SEVEN CENTS a gallon!) at the FULL SERVICE stations. I had a full dress Harley and could overflow the 5 gallon tank for under $.50!!

Cruisin' in them days was where it was at!

Problem was I had no idea THEN that them was the good ol' days!

Well, made it over there at Saturday opening (kind of a zoo that early).......looked for NitroBlast, he was flying at that time, around 10:15am.....saw him, but he was pretty busy....thanks for the free lanyard.......very nice!





Went over to Horizon's booth, was gonna purchase a $69.00 Blade Nano QX.....they sold out on Friday.....guess I'll get it on line....lol

All & all it was a lot of fun.....just a little packed, seems the traffic aisles could have been a little wider.......Thought the free flight area and exhibit was pretty cool too!

lol.

when I started driving gas was $1.20 and has only gotten that low once since

since march of last year I've worked in 5 states and put about 50k miles on my car. I enjoy driving though.

Chellie, still gorgeous as ever. Now about that young man, don't give up yet. I know I have not been on here much as I got busy in the shop and there is one site I check every day. Don't get to the Barton site much either. What with the treatments to the knees and the therapy sessions I am doing a lot better. Just have to remember to keep the exercises going now. Hope to get the one electric twiddly stick plane in the air. It been two Christmas' since I got it. Later, DOC Holliday
