Today is the day we are supposed to take my dad flying to Galveston, then to the Lone Star Flight Museum, and then out to eat. The flight is scheduled for 2:00. It is threatening to pour down rain, though. If that happens, we will have to reschedule the flight, but we’ll go ahead and go to Galveston. I’m praying for no rain, but there’s a 70% chance.
I’ll post pictures later. But until then, here’s the airport in Galveston, here’s the Lone Star Flight Museum, and here’s a similarplane to the one they will be flying.

Well, our plans were slightly altered today. There were terrible thunderstorms all around. We kept praying that they would be able to fly, but God saw it differently. He apparently didn’t think it would be safe. The only thing that scares me about Brandon flying, is Brandon crashing. The instructor called about 40 minutes or so before time to take off, and said the flight was cancelled. But Brandon will fly next Saturday, and take my dad up with him.
We did go to the museum and then out to eat. When we got into the museum, we quickly discovered that the air conditioning was not working. No AC in humid, mid-90’s weather is not pleasant. But it didn’t slow my dad down all that much. Until the AC is fixed, if you want to see the museum, I recommend doing it in January.
After the museum, we went to Miller’s Landing to eat. It was nice – just a small diner type place. Sixteen fried shrimp with two veggies and bread for $10.99. Not bad.
I am tired. Here’s a few pictures.

This is a bank for donations to help restore more aircraft:

And a shot of the Gulf of Mexico as we drove along the seawall. Had to get that in, since we were in Galveston.
Updated again..9:15…the instructor told Brandon the wind at all the airports was coming from different directions. They were worried about things like microbursts and downdrafts. But I just heard on the preview of the news that there was a tornado on the north side of Houston. I’m glad they didn’t fly.
