Alice, a stray cat that adopted me.  Alice eats pizza (which surprised me).

Lucy occasionally chases, catches, and eats flies.  I can only assume they taste good (to her), as she puts a lot of effort into it.

Photos from a get-together for the students of the MSF riding course I took ...

One of my favorite instructional props from the MSF course was a helmet marked up with zones and what percentage of crashes involve that zone of the helmet.  It demonstrates the safety advantages of full-face helmets over other styles.

One of the aircraft that was a permanent repair project at Brooks Field was sold to a salvage company for under $10,000.  It was chopped up and put on a trailer to be transported to another state and sold for parts.
