For those of you who don't know, A-Squared is just west of Ypsi (pronounced IP-see, definitely not Yip-see. They caught a serial killer with that trick once you know...). Land of the Wolverines, "The Big House", and a bunch of other stuff. Go Blue! It's like putting on an old glove coming back here, everywhere I look it's another memory jog, something or someone from my college days. Here is a scene that is appropriate for this forum, something I came upon while wandering around outside in the sunshine, warming myself in the late afternoon rays. It made me think of you guys. U of Mich Evac unit in a "Maze n Blue" colors. Ain't she purdy? The iPhone image ain't so great, but it does say University of Michigan Hospital Transport somewhere. Darn, I forgot to photo the ID plate. Maybe I'll take some more pix it tomorow...

Green and white Greg, green and white, none of this M-go blue stuff.

Mom passed away Saturday morning at 3:30 AM in the U of M Burn Trauma ICU after succumbing to massive 3rd degree burns suffered from being pinned under her own car on June 17 in a very bizarre "accident" in her garage.

I can't wait to fly my gyro again. Know what I mean?

Sorry for your loss Greg. Ann Arbor isn't far from me if there is anything I can do to help.

Thank you for your sentiments. Finally back in Georgia now, gettin back into the swing of things slowly. I really need to just get back to the only work I love: Gyrocopters.

In my absence my wife was forced to take the reins on the other stupid business I bought, so maybe it is time come at last to let her run that and get back to my REAL business.
