Living Vicariously through the Wingnut

Wingnut has had an eventful and distinguished Air Force career. He's shaken the hands of two presidents on three different occasions. He's flown Secretaries of State, Defense, Armed Forces, etc. He's been to Italy, Australia, New Zealand, France, England, Scotland, Russia, China, Korea, Costa Rica, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and countless other countries; so many I have completely lost track. I've waited patiently, like a good military wife; happy for his opportunities and successes and convinced I had the better part as he missed first steps, first words, and first birthdays.

Wingnut had a unique pleasure this weekend. It was the first great opportunity I was actually envious of, and Wingnut would say it was the best thing he's ever been privileged to do in his flying career, and it was not even with the military.

This is the guy Wingnut flew around on Saturday.

Not only did he get to fly Dr. Alan Keyes from Maryland to a pro-life event in South Carolina,

he had lunch with him AND spoke extensively with him.
They talked NFP, abortion, politics, economy, family and education. Wingnut had a marvelous time. He found Dr. Keyes to be humble, honest, faithful, down to earth, polite, extremely intelligent, and exuding an inner joy and hope. What an out and out honor!

Dr. Keyes also has a weblog we've just discovered. Check out Alan Keyes is Loyal to Liberty.

I bet old Wingy was a St. Benard in a milk bone factory! What a great honor and opportunity. Alan Keyes is one man whose brain I would love to pick!

Hey Mau,

I thought you might get a kick out of this post on Fox News website...I didn't know that you were a member of the Militia!!! And here I thought all along your husband actually "served" in a branch of the armed forces (please note the heavy layer of sarcasm). http://www.foxnews.com/politics/first100days/2009/03/23/fusion-centers-expand-criteria-identify-militia-members/

Your Bro

What a special situation. I'm glad Dr. Keyes got a pilot (Chris) that really appreciates what he stands for, fortunate for both.
Love Dad
