14 Aug., 2010 -- The weekend

Bye, Mommie... see ya Monday!

More props. In the first picture, the Baron was moving toward the camera. In the second it was moving away. Still a puzzle.

Meeting & eating at Willow Springs Saturday afternoon.

10 Aug., 2010 -- that's a stranger

That is a raindrip, I think. Haven't seen one in awhile.
Wasn't much of a storm, hit & miss. Mostly miss.

This fellow decided to wait out the stormy afternoon, took a snooze under the air conditioner, then set out again for home in Alabama. That's an RV3, homebuilt.
(I'm still fascinated with the effects of the cell phone camera and the prop.)

9 Aug., 2010 -- EXCITING stuff

Well, the only other person who might be excited about these pictures would be Fonda.
Didja get it yet? (Her birthday present for July 15 just got here today, and I just put it in the mail to her this afternoon, so, noooo, she ain't got it yet... that's just a little tease).
For those of you who might be wondering about it (if there are any out there still wondering about it (me))... There is a tiny little gps antenna that slips onto the hotshoe of the D90 and records the lat lon coordinates. Now THAT's exciting, no??? So, big brother can geo-locate the photo to Google Maps and show where the photo was taken.
That storm that loomed east of town just couldn't quite get here. West Plains got over an inch, so Willow probably got some, too. Temp almost 100 today. Too hot to fly to OK, where it was above that.

In other exciting news, Columbia sent a medi-copter at 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning to pick up a patient from West Plains ambulance, and they needed jet fuel.
This is what it looked like at 3:30 a.m. at departure.
