Goodbye T-34

Thursday afternoon was Taris' final flight in the T-34.  He is now officially done in the squadron.  I am so sad.  It makes this so final and puts how close he is to leaving in perspective!  I was able to get off from work early and witness the wetting down.  We were in such a rush to get out of Dyess AFB that Taris never had a final flight in the C-130, so I am glad he was able to have on at Whiting.  It has been freezing over the past two weeks and it just happened to warm up for one day...on Thursday.  (When I say warm up, I mean from 30-40 all the way up to 65.)  I got some great pictures and even attempted to use PhotoShop to upgrade/fix them.  (Our computer is so slow, that I usually skip this step.  But seeing as how one of my resolutions is to figure out how to use the program, no time like the present!)
