A View From the Range


In the reloading shop, high speed bovine. (click to enlarge).

The day started with a conversation about flying cows and ended up with my own batmobile. Welcome to life on the Range. I wasn't up to the blog meet, still a bit puny, though on the mend, so part of the blog meet came to me. Og, Ed Hering (Atomic Fungus), Mr B and Midwest Chick stopped by to visit with me WITH a Batmobile, still in the original packaging (to sit next to my bat phone).


There was also a get well gift of a Green Hornet Black Beauty model kit from the show The Green Hornet (known as The Kato Show in China), complete with paints, brushes and some model glue (either for the model or for the fact that Indiana is a dry state on Sunday), two Gina Koch books, and a bag of Midwest Chick's infamous brownie cookies.

Yes, we DO accept cookies (especially these).

Throw in some pie from a nearby restaurant, some conversation involving, knives, gun shows, oversexed oompa loompas (don't ask) and it was, as always, a good time. Good friends, good fun, and laughing so hard we hurt.


Now tonight, conversation with family and just hanging out with my favorite airman, and dreams of another day. Life didn't turn out the way I planned lately, but boy is it still good.

High speed cows make the best hamburger.

We love you dear one. My day was brighter for having spent time with you. I'm glad we could make you laugh....It promotes healing (as long as you don't pull stitches.....)

Get well soon, and come visit us!

A Polar Lights model? Wow! They are retreads of the old Aurora models from back in the day! A thoughtful gift! You are blessed to have such friends.

So are cows high speed, high drag?

Pies, you say! You want pies??? Next time you are in south Florida, go to Yoders in Sarasota. It is a small Amish restaurant and you will have to wait in line, but the food is incredible. The pies are somewhat WAY beyond incredible.

Glad you are doing well! Don't push it.

Unfortunately model glue these days is non-toxic. ;-)
