    I know Abilene is just about the most uncool city in Texas but I like it. The Air Force put me here in 1994 for 6 years then I was banished to the Kountry of Kalifornia for 4 years and then came back to Abilene in 2004. Repeat offender!

    But I was born in Houston and Raised in Spring. Went from first grade to High School at Spring (Wunsche Middle School). Even grew up in North Hills right next to the High School. The pilot for the Goodyear blimp lived a few doors down and I got to ride it a few times. There is nothing there at all now. Not even the overpass that use to be there by the school.

    I miss Spring (in about 1982). Now it is overgrown, over business'ed, and way too busy for my taste.

    Say Hi to Kat at Carter's Country. She is a sweetheart.

    Dyess AFB was my last duty station. Then I got out and worked for Boeing. Some of my work is on those B-1Bs that fly around. :)

    Any good ranges out there? I wasn't into guns back then but would love to have a reason to visit old friends.

    I am a regular at Abilene Indoor Gun Range. Mr James Hill and Josh always make me feel at home. Good conversation. Good selection of guns and usually a good western playing on the TV. I think the name of the street it is on is Rex Allen. The road is very close to the Monogramers T-shirt shop near the end of Treadaway.

    Yea, I have been flying C-130's at Dyess for some time now. We tease the Bone guys a lot but I wouldn't want that job brother! They wear those guys out!

    And thanks for all the "Welcome and come on in" invites. This seems like a really cool board. K
