26 Oct -- Thomas the Train in Cordele, Georgia

We took the kids today to Cordele, Georgia, for a "Day with Thomas."

 Henry is psyched!...

 ...but the enthusiasm fades as we drive on.


The train ride by the lake was quite nice.

George on the lookout for alligators.

This one isn't shy.

 There were a bunch of activities for the kids, such as a hay maze.

 Putt putt golf!

 Best of all -- there was fried dough!

It's a bear!

17-19 Oct -- USAFA Demo

I got to fly an A-10 out to Colorado Springs to do a demo flight.  It was pretty fun.

 The Chapel at the Academy.

 Inside the Chapel.

 This is one of the gliders I flew in 1997 when I went to the Academy for a 2-week soaring program.

 A nice hike before the football game.

 Not quite the same as Penn State...nothing like having to go to a football game in your blues...

 ...and without alcohol.

 On the morning we flew home.
