Greetings Loyal Airmen, by the time you read this, Valerie and the Air Chief will be back in New Hampshire starting a two week vacation to visit friends and family. The trip will start in the Granite State, where both Val and the Air Chief were born and loved most of our lives. We lived in a small town named Somersworth that isn’t even on most tourist map. It’s located right in the middle between Rochester and Dover…look to the right of the map. We were right on the Maine border. The Air Chief’s mother, resides in a senior facility in Dover and it will be so great to see her again.
From north to south, New Hampshire is a wonderful place filled with old Yankee traditions. Above is a shot of Berlin, located in the north.
One of the highlights of our trip will be attending the graduation ceremonies at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, where our grand daughter Chelsea LeClerc will receive her Master’s Degree. That we are so proud of her goes without saying. She completed a two year program in just one year. Going to be a special for all our family.
Of course while the Air Chief is gone, Art Director Rob Davis will still be working away on our new titles coming your way. One includes the latest from writer Barbara Doran which begins in 1848 Shanghai and then ends in the gold fields of California. Above is one of the settings in the book. During the Gold Rush, thousands of people from around the world traveled to San Franciso and then simply abandoned their ships in the harbor to go off hunting for gold. It is said that one time people could walk from one ship to another across the entire by without ever once touching water. Believe me, this is a fantastic novel and we’ll hopefully have it ready for you by the time the Air Chief returns the week of May 27th.
Oh, and though there will be no regular Flight Log next Friday, May 25th, do stop by regardless and we’ll have posted a couple of surprise visuals for all you Loyal Airmen who stop by every week. Until then, be good and God Bless.
Ron – Over & Out!
