Since I used to work for an airplane museum they invited me to a private tour of the restoration facilities and allowed me access to their B-17. I have lots of flying time in this planes sister in Galveston.

I made a stop at the Warner Bros. movie studio where all the Harry Potter films were made and toured the studios and sets. That was great to see.

That place is awesome. I haven't been there since '95. I'd love to see it again.

The only reason why I mentioned it is because I took an MSF course with you a year ago and you were pretty happy to point out your modeling experience.

I guess you get 15 minuets of fame when you are in a movie or on TV. What is it for a catalog......15 seconds. Pretty cool though. I would have been proud of it.
