    Thanks. There were 4 deer back there today. I have seen up to 10. They have 2 tree rubs that are pretty fresh. We got a couple of new dogs but so far the deer don't seem to care. I welded up part of a shade roof for one of the dogs today. I sandblasted it and have it in primer. I hope to get it installed in the next few days depending on the weather.

    monte55 very nice video. You must have a pretty good camera. It was even steady in that high wind.

    To satisfy all, when I weld or work outside my shop I see them either circling overhead, perched on nearby trees, or my fence. Since I'm a lifelong nature lover, I consider it a real treat when they visit.

    Keep up the interesting posts Nick.
    Hey Sporty.........how's it going. Haven't heard from you for a while. Hope everything is going well.

    Sometimes in order to protect our turf we have to do things. Whenever I see a video of a whale hunting down a seal, I feel sad for the seal but the whales are doing what is proper for their survival. It's too bad we can't all survive without the demise of others.

    Nick - I've been around but haven't posted much. Thanks for asking. Been real busy since the Sun-N-Fun. We've had to do some major work to the loach due to one of our members poor driving habits. If you've never removed the greenhouse from an OH-6, you don't want to. We've replaced two of the rotor blades, one blade clamp, fixed the oleo struts to level the fuselage, straightened some sheet metal, repaired a bent tail boom, and repaired or replaced some of the plexi. Should be done now and returned to the museum. Now he can take it out for more show and tell. Hope he doesn't bend it again.

    Another reason I've been kind of invisible is I'm pretty disappointed in how the forum is going. Seems like we have a bunch of people on here now that have no social skills. I'm too old and tired to put up with much of that. I spoke with Andy about this at the fly-in and have hopes that the sniping and rudeness will soon be put to rest. Takes all the fun out of it for me.

    Thanks again and keep posting.

    It's the "Loach - Light Observation Helicopter" that was in the pictures I posted on the Sun-N-Fun thread. It looks like a Hughes 500. They were used as observation, command, and bait during the Vietnam war. Many times they were half of a "pink team". The other half was a cobra. The loach would fly low trying to draw enemy fire and when it did, the cobra moved in and cleaned up.
