And the name is.......

Triumph Perseverance Bradrick....

Papa Peter spent almost an hour explaining why he and Kelly had so carefully chosen the name. They had studied men in the Bible and men of history who had achieved triumph over evil, sin, enemies, problems and obsticles in their lives and had done so with perseverance. Two of the men were David in the Bible and George Washington. There were many other notable men.

Triumph was given a Bible with large print so that he can learn to read it and and be able to read it in his old age. He was, also, given a world globe so that he can learn about the world into which he was born.

Each boy and man was asked to lay hands on Triumph and lift him up in prayer.

The whole evening was such an encouragement and a blessing to all who were there and they will most likely have great influence in his life.

Confederate Airforce in Fredericksburg, TX

The weather was very unsettled this day but a few of the old War Birds managed to fly in. A P-51 Mustang was schedule to fly in but was unable to overcome the weather. Bill was very disappointed. Most of the planes were AT-6's and the one above was giving rides for $250.00.

This little plane belongs to the Hanger Hotel and Diner.

More little puddle-jumpers.

A very old reconnaissance airplane.

The National Museum of the Pacific War re-enactors were there with some of the old WWII vehicles.

This C-47 had flown in earlier on one engine and other problems. It is here for the rest of the century.
