    I think this may be KK as a child. wink

    ...close.

    When I was a teenager I didn't lust after a car as much as a certain aeroplane.  I wanted a 1968 Turbocharged Cessna 210 Centurion.  6 place single engine cantilever wing (no wing struts) with a 1,200 NM range 240 knot cruise and capability to cruise above 25,000 ft (as long as you were on oxygen). It was basically the high performance "sportscar" of single engine aircraft of the time. Price in 1968, 18,000$.

    A 1977 210M with ~5600 hours on the airframe and ~900 hours on the engine will set you back around $140,000 today. Collect from Florida . . . (I see some with glass panels going for ~180K) Bit rich for my blood (by about 180K!), but lovely aeroplanes

    I don't know what it is about it, but I absolutely LOVE the Icon A5.  I'd sell my kids to own one!  Good thing I don't have any kids.... (furtively eyeballing the neighbor's kids...) laugh

    ...interestingly the sun's been poking out from time to time today in spite of the map on the previous page. The worst weather is in the western Columbia Gorge not the city.  Yesterday hit 51° here. Felt like spring (was nice not having to "layer up" like I had to last week).  Mid 40s today.

    Gil-Galad and then Elrond. From Wikipedia:

    "The third ring, Vilya, was made of gold and adorned with a "great blue stone", probably a sapphire. The name is derived from the Quenya vilya meaning air. It is also called, Ring of Air, Ring of Firmament, or Blue Ring.

    It is generally considered that Vilya was the mightiest of these three bands (as mentioned in the ending chapter in The Return of the King). The exact power of Vilya is not mentioned. However, it is reasonable to speculate that it also possesses the power to heal and to preserve (it is mentioned in The Silmarillion that Celebrimbor had forged the Three in order to heal and to preserve, rather than to enhance the strengths of each individual bearer as the Seven, Nine, and the lesser rings did). Its power of healing may be particularly strong, as Elrond seems to be the greatest healer in Middle-Earth at the time of the Quest.[3] There is some speculation that the ring controlled minor elements, considering the event where Elrond had summoned a torrent of water as the Nazgûl attempted to capture Frodo and the One Ring.

    When Sauron laid waste to Eregion, Vilya was sent to the Elven-king Gil-galad far away in Lindon, where it was later given to Elrond, who bore it through the later years of the Second Age and all of the Third. As Gil-galad was the High King of the Noldor elves at the time of the rings' distribution it was thought that he was best fit to care for the most powerful of the three Elven rings."

    Cirdan. From WikiPedia:

    "The first ring, Narya, was adorned with a red gemstone, probably a ruby. The name is derived from the Quenya nár meaning fire. It was also called Narya the Great, Ring of Fire, and Red Ring.

    According to Unfinished Tales, at the start of the War of the Elves and Sauron, Celebrimbor gave Narya together with the Ring Vilya to Gil-galad, High King of the Noldor. Gil-galad entrusted Narya to his lieutenant Círdan, Lord of the Havens of Mithlond, who kept it after Gil-galad's death. According to The Lord of the Rings, Gil-galad received only Vilya, while Círdan received Narya from the very beginning along with Galadriel receiving Nenya from the start.

    In the Third Age, Círdan, recognizing Gandalf's true nature as one of the Maiar from Valinor, gave him the ring to aid him in his labours. It is described as having the power to inspire others to resist tyranny, domination, and despair (in other words, evoking hope in others around the wielder), as well as giving resistance to the weariness of time."

    I did not know that socks with ruffles are popular.  I wanted to buy some socks at a local store but the store ran out of socks.  Maybe I should buy some from the Daz 3D store instead.

    ...had a meeting today with a fellow involved in a startup who was impressed with my background in inventory and shipping which went very good.  However, that is not the main reason for my post.  Afterwards I stopped at the neighbourhood pub for a couple pints.  While I was sitting at one end of the bar this strangely familiar looking young lady came in and sat near the other end.  After she took her coat and hat off, I had to do a double take.  Save for the colour of her hair (which was dark brown instead of ginger), she looked like an exact identical twin of my character Leela, even down to her hair style (Paxton Hair by AprilYSH).

    One of those odd rare instances.

    At least you wouldn't have to make space in your sock drwers that way :)
