Oh Rick, I only wish. I was short on two things - smarts & means!! But not in that order!! HaHa.
I am facinated with flight, though. I get awe struck when I see one - regardless of size. I still remember the first time I ever saw a picture of the Concorde. Man that thing looked fast even just sitting there. Imagine my disappointment at 12yrs old having to fly to London on a 747 instead of the Concorde!! (Actually, I was pretty psyched as it was my first flight!)
I think it's in the blood. My Grandfather was AirForce in WW2. One of my biggest regrets was that I never got a chance to talk to him about those times. I had "other" distractions in my teens......(.)(.)
