I might not answer truthfully, but I will answer.

Hi Ann,

Happy Monday! Yuch! I don't know how to send a link but if you Google the Yankee Air Museum, you will find some information on the B-24 Liberator bombers that were built at the Willow Run Ford Plant. Also, on that site is a map showing the GM plant. That plant was the bomber building site. The map will be found under "Thunder Over Michigan". Once you are in there, go to "how to get here". I hope this is of interest to you.

Hmmm, I can ask anything at all? I find myself overwhlemed with the choices.

I'll have to ponder this a while. I am rarely given such a long leash.

How cool, Bev! And rather Twilight Zone that you should send me this info.

I used to work at a Ford dealership and one of my co-workers took an interest in my dad's bomber. He actually researched the tail number and traced it to that very plant. It was made by Willow Run Ford!

I read that at the height of the War Effort, something like between a dozen and two dozen bombers rolled out of the hangars every day. Can you imagine?

This looks like a great airshow and museum too. I've been to the Mighty Eighth Museum in Savannah, which is wonderful. But of course my dream would be to visit the Norfolk/Suffolk Air Museum in Flixton, England where my dad was stationed. They still have officer's quarters and pieces of the runways where he took off and landed.

Also, every year in June they do the WWII weekend in Reading, PA. Have you ever gone? It's phenomenal.

Just remember, Renee, some of my answers might be fictional...

Jane -- It's Top Secret! Even the Spanish Inquisition (which I never expected) couldn't get it outta me.

Oh okay.

The next book, working title by Bev Armageddon Out of This World, is about Michael (Arnie and Ava's son), Trish (Dove's cousin), Queen Win and Royal Lifeguard Kennard (introduced at the end of ALAP).

There might or might not be all sorts of time-travel (or time-stepping, and I don't mean Tap), a big ass war of some kind ;) lots of sex and lot's of laughs.

How's dat?

One source said the number of bombers produced in a 24 hour period was 13. Another source said 1 every 59 minutes. They're both pretty close so it's somewhere in that ballpark.

I've only been to one airshow and that was at Dulles Airport shortly after it opened. My kids enjoyed it more than I did. It wasn't that I didn't like the show, it was just too damned hot that day and I hate the heat. The Washington area in the summertime can be murder. I stay inside with the air conditioning as much as possible. I don't know how the tourists can stand it.

Staying inside with the air conditioning allows me to bug my favorite authors on their blogs.LOL

I hate the heat too. HATE it. So far this summer's been pretty cool up here above Philly. A few dreadful days, but overall quite nice.

We'll see what Sept. and Oct. bring. Sometimes we get slammed those months.

Ann, just a hour away and it has been alternately blazing hot or rainy.

Thought of what to ask you... Just how much research do you invest in the sexual postions of your characters? I belive Jennifer Dunne likes to act hers out to be sure they are authentic and can actually be done. How about you?

Oh Renee, you are a stitch.

Okay. I'll 'fess up. You pick the ones you believe.

1) In Coffee, Tea or Lea? -- the fruit-roll-up scene has been researched.

2) In Layover, the cockpit scene has not been researched.

3) In Miss Behavior, the sex-in-a-teensy-plane has not been researched -- although I wanted to try it out with my brother. Badly.

4) In Out of This World, the scene with the window blinds and bondage...heeheehee. Oh, and the one in the Porsche...Oh, and...

5) In A Lick and A Promise, every scene is real.

Guess which is truth and which is lie.
