Whoa Nellie! Who's the hunk? (The Other pics were nice, too...)

Hi Suz! Scroll down to the previous two posts for the answer. Great Guy for sure.

Nicely done, Hogday.

Suz - he was truly a man among men - someone many people admired and loved even though they met him only through his writings.

He was taken from all of us far too early on 3/6/12.

Oh man that pic just sucks the life right out of me. So handsome and yet - for those of who knew the interior man - the outside couldn't hold a candle to the inside.

He was beautiful in every possible way. God I miss his words.

HD - thank you for continuing to honor this great man. xoxo

Nicely done Hogday; a fantastic photospread tribute.

My Regards

HD,

Nice spread, especially the CAG tail photo. That was a nice touch. We'll be hoisting one for strength, of course, this evening. I'll tip one to you as well.

Bless you guys! Just returned from town with a bottle of the blackstuff for me and the Guv'nor tonight. My co-incidences are getting weirder too. I can't shake him off, don't want to either, he clearly has my six.

Bravo Zulu Mr. H.

One for strength for sure. And one of the other for courage may be in order. It is certainly a much more barren place with Lex on eternal CAP.

HD,
I'm sorry for the loss of your friend, obviously a friend and inspiration to so many.

CW4: Roger that. It'll be `Bottoms up` for the Guv'nor in an hour or so. Glasses set in the missing man formation. Judas H this is a tough one.

PG: Thank you for the message. Yes, I took a very hard knock this week and there's a lot of folks out there who took it with me. Bloody hurts.

htom said...

What a tribute. "Bloody hurts", indeed. It's been ten days and a bit, and I had a dust attack just over an hour ago. This is going to take a long time to get over.

Hog Day:

Well done, mate. You may be sure that we will spread the word on your Lex story(ies) to any who are unaware of them on the 27th.

Cheers Paul. I can only send my condolences to the family by post and will not be on the West Coast this side of summer. Its on the important list, barring interventions.

htom: Thanks for joining me in the damp and foggy British Isles.

Not too sure about how well the Tomcats in that one photo would have gone over, though.

Have you noticed the nosewheel of the Kfir in the photo that you got the picture Suz likes so much from? A plane that has no nosewheel steering, you have to steer with the brakes, yet he has parked the nosewheel dead center on the stripe! YAY, LEX!

Hogdayafternoon said...

Scott: The Tomcat was respectfully abaft the Hornet and I cut and pasted a picture of Tom Cruise in the front seat as my little tease - love that `Paintshop` app.

OldAFSarge said...

HD - A brilliant tribute. But, you did get the waterworks started again. Over the past two weeks I believe I could have watered the Sahara.
For strength!

Old AF Sarge: Thank you very much for saying that. I needed to post something and that's all I could bring myself to do.

To use that well known phrase, "It is to weep". You weren't alone, of that I'm sure.

Justthisguy said...

Oh, my Captain! You stop that, Hog, right now! The weeping is starting to mess with my eyeballs; too much lubrication can be as bad as too little, you know.
