Memories Count as ROI
 


Whenever I feel like strangling someone I always end up thinking about better things, better times, and the great people I have known. Last night it happened again. While searching out a bad ground I had a vivid memory of an old friend who died several years ago. In my mind I could see the day he bought the most insane car of the day and the fun he had letting me drive it. I’ll never forget it. It was hilariously fun. I’m laughing as I write.

Thinking back to that day it hit me there was an interesting connection between the bike I was...

Best Supporting Character - Betty Davidson, Passed Away on January 7th.
 

RIDE THE WIND
Soar with the eagles
Roar past the lions
And call the heavens home
May you rest in God’s arms
Walk in his garden and
Drink from his fountain
I shall feel your spirit
In the carefree breezes

Jim Nolen - A Friend to All
 

Somehow Jim decided this job was his.
He always showed up to wash glasses
for Sinful Sundays. It was nice to
have him back there with us.


Last night Ginger and I reviewed our Lee Bottom photos hoping to find some good images of a friend who recently passed away. What we discovered instead was an inescapable realization. A sizable percentage of our friends and airport regulars, people who were pretty much family to us, are gone. Yes, as each of them passed away we felt it. However, they went one by one.

These things creep up on you....

The Last of the Monochrome Minidudes
 

The early years.

Today, Bair, the sole surviving dog of our once grand monochrome cadre moved on. Aging, aching, and anemic, he ambled at best. Devoid of the Labrador spirit, he laid his chin flat on the floor between his paws and quickly went to sleep just short of the age of 13.

Our family vet once told us you know it’s time when they can no longer do two of their three favorite things. Walking was out, leaning on us with his full 80lbs was gone, and his tail only sometimes pounded out a rhythm when we called his name. The only thing...

Already Mowing in 2021
 

You may have already seen the golf cart we use for picking
up the cones in action. This is how it looked 17 years ago.

Thanks to everyone for your contributions to the Lee Bottom Aviation Refuge Operations Fund. We've already serviced several pieces of equipment and should have the first 2021 mowing finished today.

The next big project is bringing the water back on line. We'll keep you posted.


*Throughout the years we've mowed as early at the second week of March and first week of May.
