It's decided!

It's decided! This will be the first WW2 bomber Kim and I fly on. It's the B-17 belonging to the Arizona wing of the Commemorative Air Force based in Mesa. She is named Sentimental Journey and we cannot wait to fly on her. Check out this link to see the beautiful girl fly.

This particular plane saw action in the Pacific during the war. It's quite expensive to fly on but the price is tax deductable and we need the deductions so why not enjoy it?

Wanting badly to do this!

This is something I've been interested in doing for several years now but so far, the experience has eluded me. This is a picture of a North American B-25 Mitchell. It is one of a few that still flies and the cool thing is, several of them offer rides to the public.

The rides are quite expensive, 395.00 for 1 hour is the best price I've found on Miss Mitchell based in Minnesota. All it would take is two extra days of work and I could pay for Kim and I both to ride the beautiful WWII bomber.

I've also been thinking of doing something else that is related. Just west of us, in Midland Texas, is the original branch of  the Commemorative Air Force. They have the only flying B-29, Fifi, and one of two flying B-24's in existence. I've contacted them already and they would like me to volunteer time to help do maintenance on them. What an experience this would be. My problem is time. But maybe I could work a friday a month to help maintain an important part of history.

If Kim and I ride on the B-25, or any of the other three bombers you can still get rides on, I'll definitely update it here. And, I'm sure, I'll drive people I come in contact with nuts talking about it.

A very cool and sweet thing to do.

This morning I checked my fb page and was delighted to see that professional Utah model, Reesa Marie, had posed with 'Whispers from the Past' on her wall page. And, to make it even better, it sounds like she is really enjoying it. My thanks to her for the recognition.

Today at work I'm making final changes to Chapter 16 of 'The Inca Prophecy'. There aren't too many chapters left so soon, hopefully, my Peruvian story will be available. Check in again with Daniel and Kylee when they arrive in Cuzco, Peru. Kylee is mistaken for the return of a 17th century Inca peasant girl who, after being sacrificed, brought a century of prosperity to the entire Inca nation.

I'm also making way on my third novel, 'The Kiwi Conspiracy'. I'm currently on chapter 1 of my final read through before giving it to an editor. It's been a long time since I've read the story and I'm actually thinking its better than I thought. Still trying to find an editor so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

Go Texas Rangers !!!

Texas is now 6-0 for the season. At this rate, if we projecte out the wins and losses through the entire season, they would finish with the record of 162-0.

It's Baseball Season !!!!!

Take me out to the ballpark! It's on again. Three games completed and the Texas Rangers are 3-0. Not only did they sweep their first series but they beat the team that many experts project to be in the World Series this year, the Boston Redsox. I think maybe a little more attention should be paid to the defending American League champions, what do you think?

Now some information on my writing

The Inca Prophecy is coming along! Kim is on chapter 15 on her final read through and once she is done, we'll put it in a PDF format and print our first proof copy. If everything looks well then, it will be available to the public. Out of my first 3 books, this one is my favorite story, my dad's too.

Still writing articles for the Deseret News and the Mormon Times. So far, four articles have been published in the print edition of the Deseret News in the travel section. Those are really graitifying to see. Also, in the online edition of the Mormon Times, I've had four articles published. One of these articles is different from the DN publications. Oh well.

I'm reading The Kiwi Conspiracy myself. It has been so long I need to determine if I need to rewrite before I send it to an editor. Once I feel good about this New Zealand story, I'll get back to a rewrite on The Eye of Magog.

Thanks for reading.
