    Life has a tendency to do that to us. But God doesn't give us anything we can't handle. Just seems like it sometimes.

    Married and middle aged, that would be life without excitement, at least in my experience.

    No need to accept Windows 8/10/whatever; I’m developing on Windows 7 and I won’t upgrade in the foreseeable future. (… and TFXplorer still supports Windows XP, doesn’t it? )

    I have a picture of my Dad kneeling beside a truck tire. He's holding a tire iron. He was also a master sergeant at the time (late 1944 in Belgium). When he showed me the pic he said, "You realize that is a posed picture." "What do you mean?" He laughed. "Master sergeants don't change tires. That's what PFCs are for." OG

    In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. — Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae

    Thanks, Whizzer! I, for one, will be honouring (note the Canadian spelling) this day by donning my favourite toque, saddling up my horse, and hunting the elusive, and yet savage, big horn beavers. Then, I will smuggle some whisky across the border to all my Loyalist American friends, who, sadly, are prohibited from enjoying such basic comforts due to the pervading Puritanical correctness down there. Then, on to Washington to burn down the White House. Finally, I will end this day with a bracing swim across the St. Lawrence river back to my homeland where I will satiate my manly Canadian appetite with a Rocky Mountain-sized pile of poutine slathered in gravy, all while getting a lap dance from a French Canadian stripper.

    Those Gigants were so big and slow a fat kid on a Aeronca L-3 Scout plane could have shot it down using a slingshot and a rock.

    OK, we're stuck with Tom Cruise then. Luckily, the story almost writes itself: Act 1: Maverick (now top instructor at Top Gun) shows some young hotshots how it's done in awesome aerial sequences. Later, gets on motorbike to visit wife's grave (Kelly McGillis inexplicably unavailable for the sequel) Act 2: Doris, a brilliant pilot and daughter of the president of Freedomistan visits Top Gun in some exchange program. Mav and Doris fall in love despite all the odds. News comes through that evil Iran has invaded neighbouring Freedomistan. Act 3: While the US cannot officially support Freedomistan for some reason, the CIA allows Mav the use of a C-17 to try to evacuate Doris's family. Peter (Goose's son, that Mav has adopted since Goose's widow was killed in freak auto accident and now happens to be an excellent aircraft mechanic) insists on coming along. They get hit by an Iranian SAM, and Mav brilliantly manages to crash land although all are rendered unconscious. Act 4: They wake up in a Zoroastrian monastary in the Iranian mountains. Suddenly, Mav hears 'You!'. It's Iceman who's become a monk (TODO: Fill in some backstory here) Mav, Doris, Iceman and Peter leave for the border but get captured and taken to an Iranian airbase. Act 5: After some brutal interrogation, Mav escapes, frees the others and steals some guns, but they get cornered in a hanger. Under some tarps, they find a bunch of F-14s delivered in the 1970s that the Iranians have allowed to fall into disrepair. Peter gets to work, and manages to get two of them servicable while the others keep the Iranians at bay with special Hollywood unlimited ammunition. Act 6: With 'Danger Zone' playing in the background, the hanger doors open and Mav and Iceman (Note for props dept: We may need a bigger cockpit for Val Kilmer this time) head for the runway. Doris and Peter in the RIO seats. They come under intense machine-gun fire, but luckily are not hit. With their AIM-54 missiles and cannon fire, they manage to shoot down the entire Iranian airforce who appear to be equipped with planes that look a bit like F-5s. The Iranians 'bug out' from Freedomistan. The End.

    I guess it has been over a decade since I met up with you at Oshkosh Oggie. The boys were just boys then. How fast the years pass by.
