Biplane Over Chicago



Today's picture is from the very early days of aviation. The picture is from 1911, and shows an early biplane flying over Chicago. What an exciting thing it must have been back then to see a plane in flight.

DOMESTIC UPDATE:

Several of our long time blog followers have complained about the lack of Domestic Updates. Yes, I took some time off due to a person who was causing me trouble on the blog, but will try again, and hopefully everyone will behave.

The last news on the blog of our daughter, the lovely MS. EAM, she had departed for Africa to serve as a missionary over there. She immediately fell in love with Africa, and I could tell that she loved the place and felt called to spend her life there. Well, recently she met and fell in love with an indiginous missionary over there, and they were just wed. So, for the romantic types, you can watch a little of her wedding below if you are interested. From the heart of Africa . . .

    Thank you for reinstating the Domestic Updates.
    Back in those days to hear and then see something in the sky must a been a thrill and scary at the same time.

  7. Congratulations on the new son-in-law! Everyone looks very happy.

    Also, I'm glad the domestic update is back. I haven't been checking in with the regularity that I used to... now that the update is back, I surely will. I'm looking forward to regular updates on the hydroponics, the chickens, the old cars.... everything.
