Forgot to show the neat gifts from my sister Robin.
She also made me a pin cushion – look at the little airplanes on it.
Our father was a pilot, actually he was a PILOT. He was in the Army Air Corps during WWII and lived all his life around airplanes. He was an executive pilot for an oil company and then ran a Beechcraft dealership and flight school on the Long Beach Airport. Later he ran a Cessna dealership and flight school. All our life we were surrounded by planes and pilots. Most of our vacations were by plane – he would borrow one and off we would go. He was a member of the Quiet Birdmen – I found a Wikipedia article about them – interesting.
On the back of the pin cushion she put a little label. I need to get some of these.
