My father's service to our country

My father touched alot of people and was very active in the community. In honor of my father Senior Adult Services  has renamed their golf tournament this year to the Bob Barrett Memorial Golf Tournament.  If you’re in the Dallas/Fort Worth area check out the Bob Barrett Memorial Golf Tournament on June 25, 2012.

I love aircraft and airports. I love flying. I love watching them. Almost like watching birds just twice as noisey.  I like trucks also – but I have to tell you I have a TON of respect for anyone that can guide a 747 around a taxiway.

Technology is amazing. How something that big can even fly. I sat and watched the hussle and bussle for quite awhile.

At DFW Founder’s Plaza people come to plane spot, take their kids to watch airplanes, hang out, and listen to Air Traffice Control.  I had a great day picking up my nephew and stopping by Founders Plaza and watching the comings and goings.

The aircraft seemed to be mostly American Airlines (After all, Dallas is their major hub), but occasionally you’d catch a Mexicana Airbus or other airline from around the world.

I wish I could have stayed there much longer. Next time I have the gas and time I may just spend a whole day there just to see what I can see.

It may seem boring to most. But I’ve always dremt of flying. Someday I will. I’m still saving to try and get a private pilot’s license.

Peace, Love, and Blue Skies,
