Ice is out

There is a certain sense of achomplishment that goes with finally completing a book. When it is all finished, the writing, the editing (Ugh), the blub, and the acknowledgement, it's over. Now all you have to do is sell it!

And that my friends is the kicker. Just getting it published is only the start. Whether you self publish, or the biggest house in the country takes you on you still have to work at selling your work.

Even with a great book like "ICE" you have to sell. You use your "Ole Boy Network" you lean on friends and relatives and finally....

You sit down in front of the computer and start on the next one. It proves you are crazy and a writer.

Sad Story

The Lockheed Vega was quite an airplane. They looked pretty standard for airplanes of the 1930's but that was decieving. They out performed everything around during their day. Wiley Post set altitude and performance records in this airplane and eventually he and Will Rogers died in a Vega at Point Barrow Alaska.

The sad part. The airplane was such a great performer that they were bought up and lost during the Spanish Civil War. The last Vega was being flown by General Electric testing radar sites (The Vega being all wood had a very low radar profile.) The airplane. sold to a privite party for restoration, ground looped, crashed and burned in Florida during delivery. The last Vega.

Out of the long list of airplanes I have flown I never had the pleasure of flying this one.
