Here we are, the last day. Well, of the year.

I thought, as I read a number of blogs, many of which are Navy personnel, or ex-personnel, and a few Marines thrown in that never seem to be ex-marines, that I’d send them an Air Force joke – of a sort.

Actually, the joke isn’t. It is a quote from a . . . person:

Doc survived being parked as a target in the bombing range in the desert. The Air Force will tell you that’s because it was a target for the Navy.”

Jeff Turner, speaking at the downtown Rotary club about “Doc, ” a B-29 Superfortress bomber that’s undergoing restoration

The Air Museum is located on McConnell AFB, Wichita Ks. It’s main building is the original tower of the Wichita Airport. Boeing Aircraft basically had the West side of the Airport, back in the day. WACO had a building/hangar just North of the old tower, way back.

It was all turned into a museum almost twenty years ago and has been building strength slowly over the years.

McConnell is, itself, a mecca of sorts for all things NAFI.  From BX to camper rentals to qualified persons. A good place for a mil family to travel light, get equipment for camping and touring Kansas.

We have good fishing, lots of touristy places and for the winter buff, good hunting in almost any part of the state.

That’s an un-paid plug for the State, by the way.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.

    Happy New Year, Ten Mile. Maybe 2016 is the year we finally get to play live poker together!
