Some of the Planes I Flew

Below are some of the planes I flew in SouthEast Alaska.  Based out of Kethikan, Alaska.  These beautiful, Dehavilland Beavers and Otters.   This was during the Radial Engine days.  Will Always cherish those memories and those adventures of flying around God’s Country.  I mean it was incredible.  This was in the Mid 1980’s.  I was just a little puppy pilot back then.   🙂

Pondering and Praying

Just sitting at my desk working.

Pondering a great many things today.   Taking a moment to reflect on my life, and what I have done, where I have been.  And the great many friends that have been there.   The current thought is being thankful for the great “Wise Men” in my life that helped me when it felt like my world fell apart.  They encouraged me, spoke into my life and were there for me when I just needed to vent and talk.  Ken, Larry, Mark L.  Mark N, Art, Jim.  For you see, they have been down many trails in life and were able to help me to get back on my trail.   Jim was tough on me, and will always appreciate that.   A part of me believes that I am where I am today, because of these men.   “Thank You Guys”.

Also missing my boys.  That is a daily thing for me.  I harbor in my heart the memories and shadow of memories of my kids when they were young, playing in the back yard, laughing, pretending, having fun.   And yes, evening crying, as they were learning how to share Leadership roles.  Now, they are all grown young men.  And I miss them dearly.  They all live in Southern California.  They are great young men and am proud of each of them.  One day, it is my hope they will talk with me again.  My Son Michael is talking to me and for that am eternally happy.  I pray everyday for them and for their safety and for the decisions they are making as they walk down their own trails of life.  I am here for them should they ever want to  talk to me.

Yes, pondering and praying today.
