Jug Has Passed Away

Recommended Posts

Sorry to hear that. Much Respect. Had some PM activity with him years ago. He was living close to Auburn AL (as was I) and we talked about meeting up there during football season. I am sorry I never got the chance.

High Flight


Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .


Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.


— John Gillespie Magee, Jr


I didn't know him, but we are brothers of the air...My condolences...

We were just emailing each on his birthday and talking about about house renovations and kids in Feb. I just.........


Thanks for the note, Dave.  Retired this past year and have been very busy moving and refurbishing a house.  Lots more work than when I was working.  Been fine though and I will be back on CA when I get my "cockpit" set up.

How have you been?
