As we all recover from the ThanksGiving celebrations and hit the Keyboards and various shops remember that the lowest prices (if that is what you are after) are here at Atlantahobby.com.
Atlantahobby.com will never be undersold and if you are an Electron Club member we will beat any in stock advertised price from any authorized dealer plus 10% of the difference (how is that for an extra special deal). This means that if you were planning from ordering from one of those big box distribution places we will always be lower priced and you will receive free shipping too.
It was a very busy day last Monday and I was just swamped with ten thousand things to do, the phones were ringing, I was planning Thanksgiving Emails and shop specials and some one was beating me up on the phone because their solder connectors were lost in the mail and the world was going to end if they did not get them that very moment.
As soon as I hung up the phone and took a deep breath and turned around I saw a older man in my lobby. He was looking at the 40 some odd planes hung and positioned in our lobby. I was really busy but he was interested in the history of my 1/4 scale Waco (built by Mr. Slick larson) so I invited him to have a seat in my office.
I had a great chat with this gentleman (Frank) and as it turns out he was 90 years young. In my recent years I have learned that when speaking to elders I need to relax and take my time with them. There are several reasons for this, most of the time it will take them a little longer to get their point across but primarily because anyone that has been in this world 90 years deserves some respect and I have also learned (after many hard lessons) that these folks have been around the block a bit and there is generally some wisdom to be learned in their words if we take the time listen.
I turned the phone off dialed down the Jimi Hendrix from the new RCRN website and one thing led to another and we got to talking about what he called the old days. Now I know what you are thinking and this was not the real estate bust and, no, not the first dot-com boom or even the Reagan years. He was talking about World War II, graduating high school, and buying his first Ford. everything that he talked about was about being young in the middle of the last century.
He told me about being in high-school and graduating in the mid-'40s. He talked about the Great Depression grinding on, and the guy across the street from him never finding a job; crying in the arms of his best girlfriend in the high-school hallway because his older brothers were shipping out to "The War" that day; ration stamps for meat and sugar, butter and gas.
Think about this for a minute, ration stamps! in the United States of America! He had a great story about the black market in fake ration stamps that you'd buy from somebody's cousin's friend; and the sense that your whole life had been under one darkening cloud after another, tempered only by the family bonds and friendships that had always been more important than material goods.
He left after about an hour and this morning in reflecting on that conversation it struck me that on this Thanksgiving Day that my kids and indeed even I have no clue how good we have it. We worry about the size of our home, not that we are lucky to have one. We worry about what our next toy will be, not where our next meal will come from. We worry about being seen on the various social networks and not that our neighbors are unemployed.
Hopefully we can learn from our elders and their history and step back a bit this weekend turn down the Hendrix (at least during dinner) and focus on family bonds and friendships. We are not in the Great depression (yet) and the rationing has not started (yet) but we should be mindful especially on Thanksgiving to be kinder than necessary as everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle, even the Pumpkin who has to make all of those Pies.
My Family wishes each of you a great Thanksgiving

I saw this and just had to share. The time and work in a project like this is just beyond me.
