Flight

We attended the Anaheim (actually in Orange) 2012 IASC conference Thursday where our pilot war hero Dad was inducted into the Skateboard Hall of Fame for his pioneering production of the “Humco Surfer” skateboard from 1963-5. Quite an amazing guy. Can you tell we’re proud? 🙂

Friday before heading to the airport we heard that some pro skaters were riffing at a skate park across the street, and I managed to get some pix like this on a new camera I’m learning to use (several more/larger pix on the Photo Page link in the right column).

Looking at a guy getting serious air like this got me thinking about some common threads in Dad’s story: courage, creativity and flight.
