Spike, thanks for posting the other two. I was taken away with Monty and posted that one first.

Bobby, Tell me... Is Monty an Aussie Shep?

If so, that is what Wyatt (my dog) is.

He is a WICKED GOOBER!

Yep, she is. You should see her bark at the sheep that graze near the airport. She's an extremely intelligent dog. She knows almost as much English as I do. She goes everywhere Bill goes. He talks to her all the time.
When he was instructing in a 4 place airplane recently, Monty was in the back seat on every flight.

BTW, This one cracks me up!

Jack Holland, fellow RV builder and Border Collie owner took this picture of his dog, Razzle.

I LOVE IT! Looks enough like Wyatt, my wife thought it was!

CJ,

You know Jack Holland!! That's who I had breakfast with Saturday morning! He is going to give me my ride in his -7! Small world. I go to Jack's fly-in every summer. I think it's June 21st this year. Anyway, we are in the same Chapter. How do you know him?

BTW, his dog is GREAT!

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I have only spoken with him over the web. I guess you could say, I virtually know him.

I saw the above pic on VAF and was compelled to write and say hello.

He seems like a helluva guy!

Cool... small world!

He is certainly a character. Get him laughing, and it's absolutely contagious. Very nice guy. He has a grass strip on his farm-actually one of very few around here that has TWO grass strips for cross winds. He always has a great turnout for his early summer fly-in. Huge shop where he sets up tables and lots of good food and great people. Can't wait.

Guys,

Please keep me posted on when Jacks party is this year and I'd love to come back down and hang out if I didn't wear out my welcome already.

Will do Jim! I am pretty sure he told me the 21st, June, but I'll find out for sure. Where are you located?

There was a LOT of people there for breakfast to meet the new Executive Director of the airport. I've never seen every seat filled before! Let me know the next time you'll be down, I'd love to talk to you about your 7A. I have preview plans ordered for the -7, and a training kit that should be here next Tuesday.

I'll probably be the youngest guy there, so I shouldn't be hard to find.

I'm guessing it'll be Jacks party then.

See you there.
