August 10 - no posts

I'm participating in the AARP Spelling Bee held in Cheyenne on Saturday, Aug 11. Today, Friday, there's a day-long "orientation," talk about keeping active, and mock spelling bee, and I want to attend it.

Will let you know on Sunday how I did...I'm not expecting to win but I do hope to get out of the writtens into the orals. There are 60 participants which must be whittled down to 15 - done so by 4 rounds of 25 written words each. I should be able to beat out 45 people to get on to that platform for the oral round, even if I lose on the first question!

Well, we'll see.

An interview with space and aviation artist Richard Groh

The Thunder Child is very proud to present an interview with space and aviation artist Richard Groh.

If you're a fan of Space Patrol, Tom Corbett, Space Cadet, Rocketship XM, and so on, you'll love Groh's almost photographic renditions of their iconic space ships. (Prints for sale at his ebay store.
