    Fifteen Years

    Fifteen years ago today, I returned from my last deployment. This one was to the sandbox: Iraq. Physically, mentally, and emotionally it was the most difficult thing I ever did. Previous deployments to other garden spots somehow didn't have the effect this deployment had on me. It was also the...

    Totally unrelated to modeling... Anybody got a camper?

    SWMBO has this idea that we could go see the USA in a camper. We have been discussing the upside and downside of it, but don't know anyone we can talk to (other than a dealer) who could talk intelligently on the topic. The idea is to take a 2 week trip out to the Grand Canyon. So: Anybody...

    9 years is too soon!

    My beloved MacBook Pro's charging cable has bid me a fond farewell. The computer is only 9 years old and still works quite well. However, SWMBO reminds me that she has told me to replace it for 3 years and I have mightily resisted. It still works, I cry! I mean, come on, it is only 9 years...

    Ya Gotta Have Heart...

    Well, Wednesday the doctor(s) implanted an ICD (Implanted Cardiac Device) in my skinny chest. This is done under Versed so I wasn't totally out of it. Unfortunately for the doctors, I sang Broadway tunes during the procedure. I wonder if they will pay me union scale? All is well, I came home...

    Happy Thanksgiving and more

    Happy Thanksgiving to all. I have a request/suggestion, today when you sit down to eat far too much (its a tradition!) take a moment and think about the guys and gals that helped secure our freedoms. I collect and donate kits to the local VA Domicile. There is a guy in our IPMS club that does...

    My Corona!

    Not me, thank God! #3 Step-Son tested positive on Thursday. I tested negative on Friday. So... we'uns are stuck in the house until December 3rd. I am NOT a happy camper. :cry:This has pushed back all our plans. No Man Closet until the middle of December. :frantic: What is even worse, I have to...

    Veteran's Day 2020

    I retired 13 years ago from the USAF. It was a bittersweet day. Years of service, travel, joy, and abject horror. For my friends across several ponds: Joy to you! Your young men and women should be honored as ours used to be. Lots of lip service today. Who knows what the future will bring...

    Fantastic New!

    In May we decided that to accommodate my back and spine difficulties (Stenosis in the C5-7) we would sell the house and find someplace that would fit our needs of a BDRM and Bath on the first floor (that just ain't available in Lakewood, OH) (IO). We have showed the house 100 times and not even...

    Good News

    As you may have noticed things have been a little up in the air at Casa de Barney; moving, selling the house, just the usual stuff. Things are looking up! I am back to sub teaching and that gets me out fo the house and busy doing something besides keeping everything clean and tidy. I also picked...

    Just another bad day.

    We are having trouble selling the house. No offers, yet. Two weeks ago we put Carol's Pug (kitty) to sleep and today we corked Uno, the Cat. He was 17 years old and the only cat I ever knew that was aggressively affectionate. He would reach out to touch you as you walked past the table. Far...

    I have been tasked by SWMBO to discover...

    (SWMBO She Who Must Be Obeyed) This has probably been asked, but where do you build models, and why there? I had a tiny bedroom that I was using until The Packing (have I mentioned that I hate moving?). I have also built in the basement. So where and why there? She may come up with more...

    Moving Forward

    I think I have mentioned how much I hate moving. Well, we just accepted an offer and will be moving soon. For Carol, this will be maybe # 10. For me? My 56th change of address. This truly bitter-sweet. I have lived all over the world, but living with Carol is the first time I have ever...

    Some unusual Planes...

    Nose weights?

    Does anyone make nose weights to keep planes from sitting on their tails? I know Terry Dean did (I still have a couple) but he doesn't answer emails anymore. Anybody? OR Does anyone have a chart of what weight is needed? I know this has been probably asked 10,000 times....

    Exiled to the Kid's Table.

    You all know the feeling. Thanksgiving/Christmas comes and you are exiled from your normal seat to the Kid's Table so that Aunt Bertha and Uncle Roland can sit with the Big People (I really had an Aunt Bertha and an Uncle Roland). That is where I have been allowed to set up a small operation to...
