Travel Day

It was an incredible weekend.
Aircraft carriers.
Aircraft. Old aircraft. Phantoms. Corsairs. Me-109s. P-51s. And more.
Old British frigates.
The Star of India.
USS Dolphin.
Great Italian food.
Great Mexican food.
Great seafood.
Now it's back to the real world.
Gotta pay the bills somehow.
Many pictures taken.
A great story or three.
What it's all about.


  1. Welcome back....Now get to work! Mama needs new shoes!

    Or something like that. Anyhow, welcome back.

    1. Sigh...

      I hear the crack of the whip and feel the bite of the New England cold.

      No really, it's good to be back

  2. The mixed feelings about going home are abou the only drawback to going somewhere

    1. Roger that.

      (It's scary how much you understand these things, Skip.)

  3. Blue Water! Many thumbs up! A must visit when I hit 'Dago.

    Glad you had a great trip, looking forward to the reports.

    1. Oh. My. Word.

      Blue Water Seafood Market and Grill was incredible. Had lunch there, then strolled up the street for a Guinness at Shakespeare's. For to honor the memory of an incredible man.

      Reports are forthcoming, just need to roust the staff out of their comfortable ways. (I swear if I leave them alone for a minute...)

    2. India street is one of my favorite places in all the wide world. I'm sitting here drooling, thinking about the last lunch I had at Blue Water, a plate of oysters followed by a plate of grilled mahi fish tacos washed down with an appropriate quantity of ice cold local cerveza. That's a dang pleasant memory to play with after a moderately frustrating but nonetheless fruitful day in cold, snowy January Nebrasky. Muchas gracias por la pronta memoria, mi amigo! You and your staff do more good than you know. :)

    3. Hahaha!

      We do what we can. Loved the Blue Water.

  4. "It was an incredible weekend." ANOTHER leisurely trip to see the sights in Sandy Eggo, eh? BASTARD!

  5. Just noticed your pic! They've got an old Convair Navy F2Y Sea Dart (F-102 w. Hydro Skis) mounted oppo the SR-71!

    1. PS: They originally started out with twin canted skis, then switched to a single center-line ski, iirc. Yup, Wiki has all the scoop..

    2. The one in front of the museum has dual skis.

      I only have two pictures of it. What was I thinking?

  6. Replies
    1. Much family, much food, much fun.

      More or less in that order.

  7. Sorry our schedules couldn't line up. Looks like you did quite well without me though.

    1. I tried. Found something you should find amusing.

      Over the next few days examine the photos closely...

      It was a bit of a bummer not seeing any of the Sandy Eggo crew but it was a very busy weekend. To say the least...

    2. Still haven't figured out what you say I would find amusing in these pics.

    3. I haven't posted the picture in question yet. Believe me, when you see it, you'll get a chuckle. (I hope!)


Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
Can't be nice, go somewhere else...
