The "Adventures of Buddy The Blimp" finds its' beginning in Australia many years ago when I joined
the Aeronaut world and experienced my first Hangar Exit, as it is called. Many of Buddy's experiences are derived from
a mixture of relived childhood wonder as I watch my children play and the faith derived as a pilot in trusting my flying equipment
against the constant pull of gravity. He has many stories to tell of journeys over oceans, shorelines, plains, deserts,
mountains and lakes, each with their own excitements of weather, events, people and challenges.
Take a look below
to see the First Page of his book. Beneath it, you can view the Dedication Gift Page which may be used to personalize a copy
to a loved one. Buddy's Adventure consists of three chapters, each with around 20 pages of colorful illustrations and
fun text. They may be read as separate bedtime stories. A short Glossary completes his book with airship terms and an
interesting exercise. Use three birthday balloons for the bouyancy experiment. It is great for birthday parties, especially
when the children first enter the room, so be sure you have your video camera recording all the fun and make sure the ceiling
fan is "Off".
