Blogging may be light for the next few days, although I'll try to post each evening if possible. I'm heading for San Antonio, to rendezvous with my Alaskan friend Miss D. We're going to attend the annual fly-in and picnic of the Alamo Liaison Squadron, a group of folks who restore and fly World War II-vintage liaison aircraft such as the Piper Cub, Taylorcraft and the like. I wrote about these aircraft and their foreign counterparts in Weekend Wings #15, as you may recall. They provided superb service in the era before the helicopter.
We'll spend a couple of days revelling in the sights, sounds and smells of old aircraft, and having fun with those who fly, maintain and just plain enjoy them. We'll also play tourist in San Antonio. There's a Mexican restaurant I recall that serves roast goat, done just right . . . mmmm, good!
Lawdog may pop down for a brief visit as well. Here's hoping! Anyway, I'll be back to the grindstone on Monday, and Miss D. will head back to Alaska. Say a prayer for us both for safe travels, if you're so inclined.
