May we ask who this lawer is. Maybe, if he is that good someone here
may want to use his services. Please give us some info so we can look
him up.

No, never even knew of it. I spent my childhood on Long Island, in (what was
then) a little town called Oceanside. I remember the name Farmingdale but
don't recall if I was ever there.

Here in Connecticut there's the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks,
just beyond Bradley International Airport. I go there from time to time and
recommend it if you're ever up this way.

I remember Jones Beach well! We used to go out there often.

But to tell you the truth I dread the idea of going back to L.I. now -- it's
the Long Island Expressway ("the world's longest parking lot" as someone
called it) and the equally slow other east-west highways that fill me with
dread. It wasn't bad at all when I was a kid in the 1940s, and afterward I
used to go back there occasionally to see old friends from school now living
in Blue Point and Sayville. But it got progressively worse over the years
and frankly all those miles and miles of creeping or stop-and-go traffic
were a nightmare for me. Apparently people who live there are used to it and
just accept it. I'm assuming it can't have improved any, but I haven't been
back there for at least 30 years.

You're way ahead of me, John. I had a few hours of dual time in a Cessna 150
in the '60s, and that was all the actual flying I ever did. Long before
that, I was in the CAP in high school and a friend of mine there had his
private ticket, so I'd occasionally get a ride in a Cessna, Taylorcraft or
Aeronca. Dang, it sure was simpler in those days (late '40s mostly)! No
radio in the plane, and some mechanic would have to come out and spin the
prop -- except one time when the plane we got was a Cessna 140 (new at that
time) which had an ELECTRIC STARTER! Wow, talk about deluxe!

Years later, after my half dozen or so lessons in the 150, which I enjoyed
but ultimately couldn't see much point in continuing, I turned to R/C model
airplanes and they were a lot of fun. (But messy.) That was in the '70s.

Since the early '80s all my flying has been on computers. I haven't been
doing nearly as much of that as I'd like to, probably because I'm just very
bad about organizing my time.

Never been up in a balloon of any kind, or a helicopter either. Or a
sailplane. I'd love to do each of those at least once. Speaking of
balloons -- when you say "the tiny propelled ones," what do you mean? Is
there some sort of mini-blimp or -dirigible?
