A true aeronautical pioneer. By the way, Stephen, are you still drawing your "late night" aircraft portraits? They were pretty cool, but haven't seen any in a long time.

Bill,

Wow I’m so busy I haven’t worked up any airplane drawings in over a year. But I’d like to get back to it. I’m thinking the X-1 and the Mig-15 need to be done.
I have been getting orders for guitars despite our current situation with the pandemic and I’ve also been teaching locally and between putting in almost full time at both jobs I don’t have the same late night extra time.
