Congratulations Dave

During a recent warm day, one of our regular visitors dropped by.  We've mentioned Dave Kaufman before but something he said on that day made Ginger and me want to send him our best wishes.

I was leaning on the wing strut of Dave's Husky and discussing with him the meaning of life when he told me something amazing.  Oh wait, let me back up.  Dave flew B-29's.  Yeah, that's right; Dave flew B-29's and he's still out visiting with us whenever he can.  So, back to where I was.
Dave and I were having this conversation.  I was leaning on the wing strut and he was sitting in "The Lady in Red" (his airplane) when he looked up and began to count to himself.  When he was done "cypherin", he turned to me and said, "Would you believe that in three months my wife and I will have been married 70 years"?  "Dave, that is AMAZING", was my response and it is still how I feel.
Here's to you and your wife Dave.  Please tell her congratulations and tell her thanks from all of us for allowing you to come out and play.  It's always great to see you.
