    Went to two memorial services this weekend. Yesterdays was a local farmer who's family has been on the same land since the 1780s. British General Clinton weatherd part of a winter on their farm during the Revolutionary War.

    Today my wife and I went to an old friends service on Otsego lake. Gunther or Gunner as he was know was a neat old school boy from Mobile Alabama. He spent most of the winter down South most years, but I did get him ski flying my pa11 few years back. And the rest of the year on his wife's family (Goodyear) estate on Otsego lake. Gunner had a J3 and a Yellow Stearman for years back in Mobile. He always talked about getting floats on the cub and flying it up here in the summer.
    Every 4th of July we have a great parade in the little town of Springfield and afterwards Gunner would have a celebration on his lawn and fire his 3" civil war cannon 13 time after reading the Constitution from a soapbox. Today they fired it in his honor, he was quite a character and this old Yankee is going to miss him.

    90 and really humid here today. Thunderstorms we're on the way so we headed to the lake to take the boat out and cool off. How many places do you go down to the public landing and see the Amish out doing the same thing, parked next to a Harley





    After a dip we headed down the lake to a friend of mine who has a Navy rigid inflatable like the Navy Seals use. Dave is a 120+ combat mission F4 Vietnam pilot. He was one of 2 F4s that flew cover while A4s looked for John McCain when he went down. Dave took us for a short ride before the rain opened up









    That big Cummings sounds awesome and makes that 5000lb boat fly.
    We got soaked right after that loading the boat and missed getting crushed by a 80 tree on the drive home.

    Fun day

    Made made it to Richmond island





    Nicknamed sheep island for a reason



    Hay/cornfield in Epping NH. 98 year old Dan who made the strip on his farm 70+ years ago with a $175 J2 Cub. The hangar in the background collapsed from snow so he put a new beam in that would last.
    Here he is posing with one of the local kids with a Cub




    We did get to see at least one Moose



    Colebrook NH



    The ride home was interesting for most of us
