In 2003 Sue and I visited her son Paul and his wife Beth in Sasebo Japan when Paul was stationed there with the Navy. Beth made a great tour guide and took us to a lot of interesting places. We did not go inside this temple but the grounds were beautifully manicured.
Boeing/Stearman PT-17 "Kaydet", also known as a Stearman Model 75 on display at the Tulsa Air National Guard during a special Family Day held on September 11, 2010. I attended as a guest of my son Master Sergeant David Miller.
The Stearman (Boeing) Model 75 is a biplane, of which at least 9,783 were built in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s as a military trainer aircraft. Stearman Aircraft became a subsidiary of Boeing in 1934. It served as a primary trainer for the USAAF, a basic trainer for the USN (as the NS & N2S), and with the RCAF as the Kaydet throughout World War II. After the conflict was over, thousands of surplus aircraft were sold on the civil market. In the immediate post-war years they became popular as crop dusters and as sports planes.
Sue and I went to the Jazz Depot Sunday evening to hear a tribute to Dave Brubeck the iconic jazz pianist who died in December at the age of 91. While wandering around during the intermission I found the perfect post for Ruby Tuesday in the form of a 1954 AMI Sonoramic Sound Jukebox. It plays 45 rpm records and is a gift from the children of Bob Wilson.
While we were enjoying our cabin over on Lake Greenleaf last week, Susan stepped out on the deck and snapped a photograph of the moon rising through the mist over the water. I think she did a great job.
Channel 2 has it's offices and transmitter on Peoria in the center of the Brookside area of Tulsa. They have a "Skycam" on top of their tower that keeps an eye on the changing weather. Since we live in the area it is always interesting to see the view from atop their tower. Built in 1954 the station was considered very modern when it was built in 1954. For a brief history look HERE.
