Happy New Year and welcome to my blog.
Well after my extensive hip surgery, I am finally seeing some real improvement. I'm still learning how to walk again, not really learning, just getting rid of my limp and unstableness. I have published new and some replacement photos on the website.
Permanent retirement is nearing, just a little over a month. I am looking forward to not have think or go to work anymore. This merger with American Airlines is a real mess and I'm glad to be getting away from it. I have been teaching commercial pilot training since the mid '70s and I think it's time to leave.
My wife, Duanne and I will be doing some traveling soon. First we're going to Sante Fe New Mexico in late April or early May. Then my old squadron in Hawai'i is having it's bi-annual reunion in September in New Orleans. I went to the last in 2013 in Seattle and had a great time. Got to see some old friends and comrades. Dianne did not know anyone there, but she enjoyed the trip. We took the ferry to Victoria Island in B.C. for a day did a lot of shooting (photography type) at the Borchart Gardens and downtown Victoria. Drove to the Space Needle and toured the Chihuly exhibit, some very interesting glass pieces on display.
Visit my website at www.billwileyphotography.com and take a look at images. Most images are for sale and will be printed and shipped at MPIX labs. Also, any comments or questions you may have, I would appreciate seeing them and will respond promptly.
Thank you all, and have a great year.
