Quarantining in Vegas

April 13th, 2020|

We do live on the Las Vegas Strip, but we're rarely here.  Once the pandemic hit and everything closed down, it became painfully obvious how we live in the middle of a tourist destination.  All [...]

Ze plane! Ze plane!

March 24th, 2020|

At long last, the plane is done!  When we started back in May of 2017, we had no idea it would be almost three years before we'd have a finished plane.  Now we'll be flying [...]
