    Had a home health-aide show up coughing, siffling and blowing her nose. Of course, hours later my mother is sick and today I’m now sick as a dog. Totally perfect Saturday blown in bed with head and body aches, swollen throat and congested cough. I did find something good on Amazon Prime which is one of my favorite movies of the 80s:

    Yeah, one of my favorite scenes I’ve rewound a few times but my picture is super clear.

    When I was 4 years old I would cut out WWII fighter plane from the backside of Cereal boxes and fold them into little airplanes. My favorite to this day is the P-40 made famous by the Chenault Flying Tigers in China. Recently I found an old documentary film on the origin of the P-40 and how it was used by several countries before we entered the war. It wasn't the best example of American aircraft and Chenault had to train the young volunteer pilots how to attack the Japanese Zeros. One of my Favorite Movies is "God is My Copilot". You can find it on YouTube.

    Underpowered and only effective at low altitude. Chenault trained the pilots to come out from the sun so they could not be seen and maintain the element of surprise.

    Yes they were, but they were souped up by the brits with super chargers. You should watch the documentary video on YouTube, it’s a mashup of old WWII film and the history of its development back in the mid-30ths. You have any interest in a movie night watching old WWII Warbird movies? I searching public domain films about WWII that are free or low cost to down load.
