As co-S.I.C. (I say co- because, of course, Lindy must share in the honors, and Ed has been showing great enthusiasm for the smileys of late,) anyway, as co-S.I.C. (not to be confused with S.A.C., Smiley Administrative Chief, or S.E.C., Smiley Executive Captain, or S.O.C., Smiley Operational Commander, or ... well, you get the idea,) as I was saying, as co-S.I.C. (and don't you hate these long, drawn-out asides? Just get to the point, I am sure you think, and I most whole-heartedly agree with you,) now, where was I?Oh, yes, as co-S.I.C, I was encouraged by the sudden growth in the smiley population towards the start of the new forum system. Lately, however, the number of smileys has remained constant. Has the AvSim staff been spending their time on less important matters? Never mind, I propose to remedy this and herewith present for your approval the latest generation of young smileys. Call them "vanity" smileys, if you will.The Ron A. smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3c440a140fe0.gifA smiley for all seasons (is that a B.C.loco?)The heyTedKantrowitz smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3c620a6b168b.gifMedic!The 24-incher smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3c7a0aa61867.gifI was referring to the shell, DocThe Jerry K. smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3c8d0aea09dd.gifa space-age smileyThe Scott Brazell smiley, also known as the smiley-in-the-moon smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3ca40b316c09.gifNot made of cheese, after allThe sure-draws-a-crowd smiley, for Lindyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3cb90b77d303.gifyes, girl smileys are more important than aviationThe Red Baron smiley, for tallpilothttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3cd70bbcd303.gifmajor overhauls were much simpler thenThe wonders-of-nature smiley, for Dan Pursel http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3cf50bfc2533.gifUh, Dan, don't look now...The Larry A. smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3d0e0c38e6c9.gifalso known as the kit smiley, (just a reminder)The Racing Fool smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3d280c707321.gifand just who is this Robert S. guy?A smiley for our Fearless Leader, Tomhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3d440ca15fc9.gifSome days, he must feel like this - "suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous" etc., etc.The globetrotter smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3d620cf18c9a.giffor MeekalThe Porkster smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3d790d5954da.gifDefinitely not a pig tailThe Georgia peach smiley, for Dave H.http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3d9a0daf4a93.gifat least they are not coconutsThe Maxter smiley, also known as the they-fly-that-way-down-under smileyhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1a3db30e0f279a.gifComes with a year's supply of sick bagsAs you can see, the little buggers are busy reproducing.Best regards.Luis

Ahhh, Brother Luiz:It is good to see that in your absence, you were productive. Prolific even.Very nice work. A 24 inch Smiley? I have seen a model of one. I have not had the honor of lofting one of them skyward. How sad indeed.They (the powers that be) have taken much of the fun away from shooting these days. 8 inchers (the shell, not the smiley, or other items) and larger must now be fired electrically. I guess they are a bit timid when it comes to the muzzle blast. Which is considerable. Both the lift off and the burst of an 8 inch or larger shell wreaks havoc with auto burglar alarms, bank alarms and other pressure sensitive devices. Thats all in the fun of it, to me.I just got back from flying to the East Coast, and then driving a rental truck load of stuff from my Mother's house back. It surprises me no end to report that the seat on American Airlines was more comfortable, and had more room, than a Ryder rental truck. Some consolation must be gained from driving on the Interstate near Columbus, Ohio with two replica AC Cobra kit cars in tow. They were more than pleased with my 85 mph speed holding.Also noted a mass hot air balloon ascension and a fellow flying a motorized parachute. All in all a nice trip.Doc Bryant

You guys are so nice that I thought I would throw in an extra smiley or two for your viewing pleasure. While normally I prefer to roll my own, these came from someone else's collection via the internet.http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1c5550507240b0.gifAllright, it is a little ghoulish. So, how about this?http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1c55c6513a2c23.gif http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1c55c6513a2c23.gifMorbid, aren't they?Best regards.Luis http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d1c563551f82772.gif

Luis, you really had some spare time on your hands, huh? A real smiley authority in the making, if I say so myself.Thanks for remembering me and my personal smiley and it does seem sometimes my head is not just in the clouds but in orbit. :-lol

Scott,Are you trying to invade my "SPACE"? I spent 12 years in the satellite communications business. I could find any geostationary satellite from anywhere on the globe where they were visible. I also observed some polar orbiting spacecraft as well.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

Hi Jerry,Drop me an e-mail with your phone number and I'll give you a call from Knoxville. We'll be there from the 6th to the 9th and depending on your and our schedules maybe we can get together. I think we're staying near the UT campus but I'm not sure as my son has made all the arrangements.Ed Weber a.k.a tallpilotflyers@citlink.net
