Memories of model WWII airplane

As I had written before, Dad had purchased a complicated stick model airplane kit for me when I was 6 years old. It was early 1942. World War II had just started for the U.S. The kit, for modelers age 14 and older, was of a little-known early World War II aircraft known as a Vultee Vengeance ...

Who wants to cook when temperature tops 100?

Grandpa’s favorite fish tale

We’re headed into the main part of summer with weather that can be hot and sticky. It’s time to turn on the air conditioner and enjoy the cooler, less humid home that some of us enjoy. It took me back to years ago when I was growing up and we didn’t have air conditioning. At night ...
