  • Lou is going away for a couple of days

    I am leaving for Dayton Ohio tomorrow morning to meet my son Isaac and his wife Leah. We are going to tour the Air Force Museum there all day Friday.

    I took Isaac to the Air Force Museum when he was about 12. They only had two buildings then but now they have four. I find aircraft very interesting and I have deep interest in history. This museum is about both.

    It is a 250 mile trip one way. I am driving my car, of course. Please pray for us.

    I should be back Saturday. Please keep the forum going while I am away. Thanks.

      Thanks Steve. Please pray for my son Isaac and his wife to have a safe trip too.

      Isaiah 66
      This is what the Lord says:

      “Heaven is my throne,
      and the earth is my footstool.
      Where is the house you will build for me?
      Where will my resting place be?
      2 Has not my hand made all these things,
      and so they came into being?”
      declares the Lord.

      “These are the ones I look on with favor:
      those who are humble and contrite in spirit,
      and who tremble at my word.

          Thanks for the prayers people. It was so good to see Isaac and his wife Leah again.

          We all had a safe and enjoyable trip. We are very thankful for that, especially considering the crowded interstates and the way some people drive. Some think nothing of tailgating you from two car lengths when traveling at 75 MPH. But The Lord kept us all safe and we are extremely thankful for that. Traffic was very heavy on all three lanes all the way there.

          They must have close to 100 aircraft on display and also have many other displays. Most aircraft have the engine used in it on display near it and many are cross sectioned so you can see inside of it and see how it works. There are also many of the guns and missiles used in the aircraft on display near the aircraft that uses them. They not only have almost every plane the Air Force ever used, or even experimented with, they also have many planes from Germany, Japan, Russia, Britain, France, Italy and Canada.

          I was amazed at the mark 17 thermonuclear bomb that they had on display that was carried by the B 36. It was almost 25 feet long and 5 feet in diameter and weighed over 41,000 pounds. In fact a B 36 dropped one of these by accident near Albuquerque New Mexico in 1957. Thankfully it did not have a nuclear explosion, but only the regular explosives went off. It was 10 MILLION TONS of TNT if it had exploded.

          You can walk through many of the passenger and cargo planes.

          It was very evident that The Lord had many men design many of the best aircraft in the world to protect our nation. There was people there from almost every nation around the world. I talked to a couple from Britain that flew to Dayton Ohio from England just to see this Museum. I am a little tired from walking on concrete for two days from 9 to 5.

          You can take a pretty good virtual tour here:

            I forgot to mention, that while I am back from Dayton, Ohio, Isaac is here to visit and so my posts will be few for a few days.

            I went running in the park with Isaac and Leah yesterday. We took a trail that me and Isaac had run together thousands of times. It really brought back good memories and was a lot of fun.

            Tomorrow we are going to my gun club in the morning and then we will have dinner with my daughter and her family that night.

            If anyone wants to post some of the things they are doing, I think it would be interesting for us all to read about. I know I like to hear`what you all are doing.

              Well I had dinner with Isaac, Leah and my daughter and her whole family.

              They just all left and Isaac may not be stopping on his way back to Quincy, Illinois.

              I am pretty sad. I don't get to see them very much and their visits are so short.

              Please pray for me.
