in 1989, I built a replica of his house that is in Tiny Town - they were so nice to give me the run of the place to take all the pictures and measurements I needed to do the 1/6 scale version........it was a great time, and that was the 100 year anniversary of when the house was built. He was really something, very much enjoyed knowing him. RIP
I still have the drawings I did of the house to build the model...........

RIP, Mr. Meyer. My husband and I met him at the 2008 Democratic Caucus at Conifer HS. It was February and freezing cold. We ran into our next door neighbors and were seated at their table. Mr. Meyer came over and introduced himself. He must have been 91 but still sharp as a tack. What a long and accomplished life!

Just reading the Timber Times article. What a wonderful life he had and will surely be missed.

Your friends at Continental Airlines will miss you Norm. It was a thrill to have met you. I've loved that house since I was a little girl and we'd drive past it on our weekend mountain outings. Rest in sweet peace.

High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .

Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

— John Gillespie Magee, Jr

Just as thought. Wouldn't it be great to have his plane in the summer memorial. Maybe a fly over?
