I am VERY proud to say my brother Chuck retired after 31+ years as

an ATC Controller. Chuck "Ya Done GREAT, Bro". I plugged in with

Him his last hour on the job. I was impressed and have a totally new

respect for ATC Controllers. After he checked out we all went out for a

Happy Hour/Dinner.

 My better half.  Now you know why I fell for her. Those that know us like family know

she has always been the wind beneath my wings!
