Smile Another Matterhorn sighting

Bonnie and I have spent the last month in Europe and could not leave for home without posting a picture of us with a VAF hat at the Matterhorn. Have had a great visit but it is time to head home.

Talking Pensacola Home Coming & Nose Art

Would have been better if TeamRV were there. Big guy flys a Decathlon and always scores higher in IAC contests: than I do with my RV. Nice to have living nose art from the A-26 to hug. Just trying to keep up the RV image.

Default Buzz Lightyear

So, there I was with my two grandsons and Tyler (that's Tyler on the left, Buzz, Dakota, me, and Logan) hanging out in the Gamma Quadrant, Sector 4, and who do we run across but Mr. Buzz Lightyear!! He was kind enough to pose for a picture and note the VAF hat that he is sporting.

He really seemed happy with the VAF hat based on his thumbs up sign.
