Here are some sculptures I made last week at my wife's request after she came home with a bunch of junk from the feed store. The cast gears stick welded OK with my AC welder, which surprised me - I thought they'd crack.

Kids at Quartz Creek

I took the kids to Kenai Lake the other day and we walked around Quartz Creek campground. A bit rainy and cold but fun - saw bear tracks by the lake and an Eagle up close. I tried to get there over Lake George and couldn't make it so we went back and around over Resurrection Trail so it took about 1.7 hrs to get there.

Hanna's Halloween Skirt

Hanna picked out this material at Wal-Mart and Julie made the skirt. She said she wanted to wear it with her Halloween shirt. Julie didn't use a pattern.... it took 3-1/2 hours to make. Hanna likes twirling it.

Aviation N Expo

Today I went to the Aviation North Expo in Fbxs, which was OK, but a long way for what there was. The interesting thing was, at the transient parking I got a ride over from some people I met there... turns out she's Lonnie Chestnuts (Dons friend) sister and Danny DeVoe is staying with them. Then on the way back in the hotel van, there was an Anchorage couple that had come up in a 180 and turned out to be friends of Geoff Hershberger, a childhood friend and neighbor of mine. Small world. Also, I guess Haunie is living in their old house and their mother died too, which I hadn't heard or had forgotten.

The B24 is wrecked near Fairbanks at Wood River Buttes.... a local landmark called 'bomber'... as in "I flew all the way to bomber and didn't see a single Moose" - Which is exactly what I heard at Tamarak Air that prompted me to ask... "what bomber"? It's quickly going back to elemental Al it looks like..
