Here is our tail. This is our new Mustang, 510-453 on delivery in Independence. As we were deciding what to use, it came about to incorporate the whole family.


We already had Juliette Delta for John and Debbie. How about the kids? Our son was born on the 9th, and our daughter was born on the 12th.

Thus N912JD became the new “Tail-Tale!”
