from the os scrapbook
















Happy Friday everyone and thanks again for all the great comments, camaraderie and great links to cool things. I had very little time to participate with all that was going on except for the daily postings. I have 5 daughters and sadly one of them has a bit of cancer and she started her chemo last week and it has been a long one getting her comfortable again. thanks for all the prayers, good thoughts and messages that we have been receiving for her. The Dr.’s say that it was caught very early and in about 4 to 6 months she’ll be as good as new. Thanks again and hope everyone has a great weekend. So with that here are some more great images of the beloved Enterprise model back from the 1960’s,  Enjoy..

      He’s actually got 3 teens right now (Carlene is one of them), so you can pray for him on that score, too! They’re all beautiful!! Just think of the driving lessons!

      Thanks DEG!!! That means a lot to me, On of them is married and gone but at home there are 3 16 year old’s and a 7 year old, and honestly I worry more about when the 7 year old hits the teens,,, She’s got a fairy tale romantic sence to her and I don’t think I am going to be worrying so much about guys after her as it will be the other way. HAAA! I might have angry fathers of sons coming after me with a scatter gun.

    John, Sorry to hear about your little girl! I hope all goes well. I’m glad the cancer was caught early. The earlier, the better a chance of full remmission. My wife and I will be keeping the Eaves family in our thoughts and prayers. Post an update when you can.

    Chin-up, my friend!

    My personal prayers for your daughter.

    Never tire of seeing these behind the scenes images especially when it’s good old 1701!

    You know, I kind of liked the big dish on the pilot version. The taller bridge dome balanced it out and kept her from looking bug-eyed, and I have always thought the nacelle spikes just looked plain cool. In fact, I was always slightly surprised that more bad guy starships didn’t have scary, aggressive spikes poking out of their nacelles. Well, at least Star Trek Nemesis delivered on that count. 🙂

      Thanks Justin and I am sure Carlene will be also,,, I think that she is going to turn this journey into something that will help others find encouragement. She has started her own blog and she has a pretty good following!!!

    My best wishes for your daughter and your complete family. I’m a firm believer it helps to think positiv and say “Yes, I will recover” – so tell her to keep fighting (I’m sure you do) and to think positiv!

    My best wishes

    My heartiest good wishes for your daughter Carlene. I hope she beats it. On another note, thanks for sharing these pix of the original Enterprise.

    Thanks for sharing your work and the situation about your daughter having cancer. I will continue to pray for her healing. Please keep us posted.

    Just wanted to add my heartfelt wishes to a speedy recovery for your daughter. As a father myself, that desire to have our children be safe makes situations like these frustrating and scary because they are out of our control.

    My prayers are with you, your family, and the medical personnel helping at this time that all will turn out well in the end!

    Too bad you don’t live in or near Pittsburgh, John; Children’s Hospital has the best pediatric cancer treatment program in the nation, & my friend Fidget works there as an X-ray tech who is adored by all..7 she was once a patient in her teens.

      Thanks and we actually have her in the Los Angeles Children’s hospital. They are the West coast version of yours… They are really taking good care of her. and I am sure if we were back East that is where we would be.

      Thanks again.
