Very impressive! What a guy!
Hope all is well with you. Hi to Angie and girls.
Pete and girls
Back at you Pete, hullo to all the Feehan’s.
Pete, I think I’ve commented on this before, a real labour of love. Very appropriate on this of all days, Lest we forget.
You have to admit dad saw plenty of hopeless movies … though he did better at cards and water polo when not dropping 1,000 lb bombs … He described once what it was like landing a P40 on a steel mesh strip with a thousand pounder hanging off the undercarriage only six inches clear of the ground. Sometimes they dropped a few in the nearby lagoons and later paddled out to scoop up the dead fish for dinner.
