  1. And you said, "Oh and as I've said before, the English are best too." Careful, they may revoke your passport.
  2. Johnny, I'm a Yank and it's feet, inches, yards, and miles here. What s crew this is. A happy go lucky bunch, hangar flying and sharing our past life, all the while knowing that we are all passengers on the same plane, flying West, parachutes on, awaiting our turn at the door. I am so glad to be here with you, so while we wait, have another round on me. Dale
  3. LMAO and ROFL Is your Doctor aware of your delusions? I know your wife is because she allows you to keep them.
  4. You forgot to mention the mechanic that is required to keep them going Dale.
  5. I have been recovering from a move from my beloved West Texas desert to Baton Rouge, LA and the rain that comes with it. Last September it became obvious to me that I was not going to be able to continue to live alone and accepted my son's constant pleas to move in with him. I left my 2 acres and traded it in for a 9x12 room and I have been trying to fit my stuff into that small space. A new flight sim setup and all of the problems that come with it. I will try to be more attentive to the group. Dale
  6. I have 2 wives waiting for me, I don't expect much peace. Dale
  7. Yes, but not as much as in the '40s thru the '70s
  8. The differences are subtle and are impossible to hear in the under 30 crowds. Now it's mostly word usage without the original tones.

This exercise has helped to renew old memories, both good and bad, like how I convinced a girl I met in Oklahoma City to marry me after only 3 weeks of courtship. She stuck with me for the next 42 years when I lost her to heart failure. Dale
  10. Now let's get specific here, which Texan are you talking about? Piney Woods/Sabine River? Oklahoma Broder? East Texan? Gulf Coast? Houston? Dallas/Ft Worth? Austin? Hill Country? West Texan? Texas Oilfield? Rio Grande Texan? Although they all speak Texas English you can hear location accents in their language because their original families were from the same Europian country and they tended to settle around people who spoke their language. The original Texan language other than the Native American dialects was Mexican Spanish mixed with English which you can still hear along the Rio Grande. Being that Texas is larger than France, was mostly empty unclaimed land and ripe for settlement, it quickly filled with people from all over Europe giving rise to the different accents, so once again, which Texan are you talking about? Dale A Proud Naturalized Texan
  11. Are you bored? Do you want to get your heart pumping? Go to work for this airline and you will never be bored again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3V52nhc01aM&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR0YSGyLIvGl5vkuUzAq9Y3xy9SMGEBR7yTMJ57AAlvquTxmqGXg4uSpQx8 The PNG Scenery is great and fun to fly in. Dale
  12. Thanks, you just reminded me that I was in my 30's when it came out. It's still a great movie. Everyone forgets his first and one of his best works, the Blob. Dale
