For the obscure moment, and intermission from cutting grass:

Todays , Fare?

Always civil, or aspire.
Art and photography.
The Race--no one has pitched in on my notion of running the "Panamericana" yet---
Cooking.

Ax: If I were closer and had a little more time I might be game for the Pan-American race.

Speaking of bucket list what else you got on yours.

On mine that horsepack trip back into the wind river range is up there spend a couple of weeks maybe even a month back up in there maybe some kayaking too.

Trip to Paris the Louvre, Italy especially Florence to see firsthand the works of the Renaissance masters.

Always dreamed of being a national geographic photographer, dream job.


Just a few for now.


Jeff:)

P.S. left you a post in the what music are you listening to thread probably should have posted here.

Back When--Carroll Shelby decided the arrogance of Europian Domination of sports car racing, had come to the end---Result--GT-40.

The early ones had small engines, along the lines of a 289, the Latter Mk.4's had Cobra engines.(Bad Mammas)

Despite setbacks on the track and in the pits, at le' Mans'-- they finished --1, 2, and three---Ax.

Re: AX'S CORNER
 
Those Shelby Cobras were bad mommas. When I was younger and didnt know any better I passed up a chance to buy a hotrod an older farmer was parting with for I think $3,500.00 at the time, had a 426 Hemi in it believe the car was a dodge charger. I kick myself now for not buying that car.


I saw another Helo that you would recognize flying around today CH-46 or Chinook.
They were our main troop transporter when I was on the Helo carrier, always reminded me of a flying bus. From their looks I am sometimes amazed they fly at all. I have actually flown in one a time or two back and forth between ships and from ship to shore.

Oh, gads bend over and let me kick you too---A 426 "Hemi"---see movie Vanishing Point--
Dodge sold a stripped down version back in '60's I mean stripped even the upholstery wasn't padded--for around $3000, all you had to do was put drag slicks on the back and head for the drag strip--they were a running Hunk of Plunder.

Will post a few pics later

Great pics Ax, I guess those Chinooks may have been ugly but they were pretty tough, Hueys are a great helo too guess that is why the marines are still flying them.

I know the army went to the apache for attack helos one bad mamma there wouldnt want to be on the receiving end.

Marines still using cobra for gunship/attack, and Ch-46 chinook and Ch-53 for cargo troop movers.

Army and Navy also use the H-60's Blackhawk a lot special ops guys use them often and Navy uses the seahawk version as multipurpose and ASW platform. The Anti-sub version Lamps H-60 is on every Navy destroyer/cruiser/frigate. They have dipping sonar, sonabouys for subhunting and carry ASROC (anti-sub rocket) and torpedos for ASW stuff switch to the Harpoon anti-ship missile for surface targets.

The whole Enchilada as we used to say--blower, two fours.
Fellow back home was sitting at a redlight, this VW bus pulled up a whump--whump etc- had a sign on the door--?? Farms, Inc"-he rolled down the window

and asked the guy what he had in that bus?

Fellow driving, took his cigar out and said "Oh, just eggs and things"
Light turned and the VW burned rubber for half a block--blown Hemi--two fours -

Strange one Ax, I assume some sort of caterpillar but the tail or is it the head looks like a snakes head. Would probably scare some of the birds away.

Morning Ax.

Mornin, Jeff

Didn't get the companion pic resized till this A.M.Will post today.
You are so close, and I'm not surprised, you'd win the blue ribbon.
It trips off , in my mind,as an aquaintance of mine, from Louisiana, used to say--"How 'dey do 'dat?"

Chuckle--Hope you have a good work day, and "Keep 'Em Flyin!"

Ax I will do my part to keep them from running into each other anyhow. I work on ground to air Comms mostly, also airfield lighting and landing aids. If my radios work then the Air traffic controllers can talk to everyone.

Jeff--If you look at my first pic on this thread , you will see a pic ( on the left side, of my best Friend(in Navy Dress), now gone--who did the same job as you.

I have a story for you later. It is priceless.
I already know you will get the job done----sometimes "One, just Knows"--;)

Rather strange, how things work.
I have always been enamoured by what is around us, that we tend not to see.

Maybe a "Frog Prince" or a caterpiller that turns in to a work of art, --Thanks for post--;)

Re: AX'S CORNER
 
I have found if one keeps an open mind and really looks at what is around them they will see all kinds of interesting things. I wish I had better photography skills so I could capture some of those moments.
