    Its a new age thing-"The Gender Reveal Party"

    When my dad was born, granddad didnt come to the hospital until the next day to see his new son. When I was born, my dad finished out the day planting potatoes on the farm then came into the hospital that night.
    I was there sorta helping when all three of my kids came into the world and was thankful to be a part of it. In all of the births so far, none of us knew what whether you were getting a boy or a girl. Today, the ultrasound technology is so good you can see all sorts of things in the moms belly, especially the two most important spots. Therefore, the gender reveal party is born.


    You may remember my daughter getting married last June, when a flyin broke out at a wedding, it was big fun. Now nature has taken its course, and my baby is having a baby not a year into the deal. In keeping with the aviation theme, she somehow wanted to keep the cub theme going, so she dreamed up a smoke pass which would either be pink smoke, or blue smoke for her baby gender. Go figure out how to do it dad. Took me a few experiments, but we figured out a way. The smoke system will only produce white smoke, if you want to do color you have to inject a chemical into the exaust of a jet engine, of which the Sport Cub is not equipped. We figured it out and the rest is history.

    Last night we had to shut down the work a bit early and get with the family and friends around the firepit while dad fired up the cub. A couple of fake out passes down the strip just to agitate the crowd, and this is the money pass

    Blue smoke looks like another boy. We can use all the tractor drivers we can get our hands on



    Really pretty night in Maine, we have had nothing but cold and wet for a month.

    Got back on the ground and the happy couple had one more announcement, the name
    of said new baby.

    The chief pilot had a fair amount of trouble seeing when my daughter said the baby boy would be named after the man she admired most,
    her dad. James Everett Pullen, cant wait to give you a ride in the cub. Will even show you where the smoke button is
    I am truly blessed with great family, and it keeps getting bigger and better




    Congrats Allyssa and Mark. See you in Oct James Everett

    It's pretty clear how the lad's parents would want to name him after his granddaddy

    Jim, this is a totally cool thread! Thanks for sharing this with us.

    I can understand why the chief pilot had trouble seeing when the name was announced. What a great tribute to any father!

    The whole concept of a "gender revealing party" was new to me until my daughter did this to announce the arrival of Annabelle. It is a neat concept, certainly a "New Age" thing.

    Congratulations, and nice job flying the aircraft with the blue smoke. I love the idea, and congratulate you for pulling it off!

    When I saw the title of this thread, I was SO afraid it was gonna be some kinda LGBT-whatever (aka "undecided" or "in between") thing.
    Thanks for keeping it real. And congrats on the grandson!

    Good work chip d. Look at the code numbers on the bag. The first number on the code is the day of the week manufactured, the next 2 is the plant code. Our plant is 66, Killingly ct. Most likely would be our spuds

    The Red Sox trip to the World Series next week means no downtime this weekend for us. Extra loads in the system already

    Lot of people don't even know what that is.
    We grew up on Goodies Spud Chips.
    I may be wrong but that probably won't stop me from arguing about it.
