(I fell down some stairs) lol
What gets on my nerves:
1.People who drive slow in the left lane.
3.People who show up at your house without notice (I love company but that's just rude!)
omg what if Jay Leno drove slow in the left lane to show up at my house, that might very well do me in....

Today in Dayton a local WWII hero will be brought to his final resting place at Calvary Cemetery.

Herb Stachler was a 94 year young man who was as humble as he was sweet. But he was indeed a HERO. It has been my pleasure to know this wonderful man and spend time with him at Moraine airport on many occasions. I knew him as a wonderful friend. My husband and my pilot friends knew him as much more.
Four years ago, Herb was introduced to our friend Andy Heins. Andy kinda took Herbie under his wing and the group of pilots embraced Herbie with open arms. I am very VERY proud of Andy because he really introduced Herbie to four really great last years hanging out with a group of people who idolized him. Although Andy feels he was the lucky one. I asked Andy for help in writing this blog because I knew he could do it justice....
"Today we lost a true American hero....Capt. Herb Stachler "Lil Herbie" U. S. Army Air Corps to all who knew him. Herb flew 102 combat missions in P-47's with the 366th Fighter Group in WWII, won the Belgian Croix de Guerre, Distinguished Flying Cross, 18 Air Medals, and numerous other awards and citations. He came home, married a young lady who he attended high school with and had 10 children.
Herb came into my life four years ago by chance. I thank Mike Hartman and his parents for introducing me to Herb. Herb reminded me so much of my own father and it was if I had him back again. Herb became part of our airport group and enjoyed flying with all of us in the antique and classic aircraft. He was a regular at all hangar parties and even hosted a few cocktail parties himself. He had a zest for life and lived every day to the fullest. I was lucky in being able to share so many amazing aviation experiences the past four years with Herb, including Oshkosh this summer where he was honored by the Texas Flying Legends Museum.
Herb was a true friend and I will miss our weekly talks, our flights together and our cocktails afterwards. God Speed Herbie.....may you always have blue skies and tailwinds! I will miss you dearly." -Andy Heins
As Herbie is laid to rest at Calvary cemetery, his pilot friends are planning to honor him in the best way they can. Weather permitting they'll do a fly-over in missing man formation as one breaks and heads west. I will be in one of the airplanes.
**UPDATE Sadly, weather did not permit the flyover for most pilots :(

We will miss you Herbie.
