What red blooded American boy didn't lust for a Red Ryder Bee Bee gun? The same red blooded American boy who lusted for a "Flexi" as in Flexible Flyer. The Christmas season is time for nostalgic memories, and nothing brings them back to me as those four graphics. Approaching the year 2013 when I will reach the
golden age of 80, I find comfort in the knowledge that there are 2 stick model airplane models in my storage
area. One is a Curtis P40 "Warhawk" and the other an ME 109 Messerschmitt. One day when I am limited
in my physical abilities, I will acquire a soft mounting surface similar to the "Homasote" wall board we use to use, and diligently return to the joys of model building.......uhh, that is, if my aging eyes will allow!
