Arthur Norman Stevens, May 1947
Art was multi-talented, he could fix the electrical, air conditioning, heating, and plumbing in your home, then, go fix your car.
Art always wanted to fly. He loved airplanes. I was a student pilot when I first met Art. He and I would sit at the kitchen table and "fly" for hours. I never got my pilot's license, and Art never got to take lessons, but he and I continued to fly at the kitchen table for years to come.
Art also loved electronics, he even built his own television. He thought hand held calculators were as they say, the cat's 'meow'. Had he lived a few more years, he surely would have been enthralled with computers and Man and I just know he would have been a hacker supreme!
Happy birthday to Man's Dad, we miss you.
*Last year's birthday post for Art is here, you will see I wrote about several of the same things, his ability to fix anything, he and I flying at the kitchen table, and the television he built. I wrote today's post and then went to review last years. I guess one could say, he left strong impressions and memories that have not faded over the years.
