Wabuska Whistle Stop?

Isn't it called the "Wabuska Whistle Stop"?

Give Linda a BIG HUG for me and ask her for a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

The last time I saw her it was around Easter, six years ago. She and her husband Ed put my wife, son, and I up in their spare room. It was before they had the Bed n Breakfast.
Years before, I either put her in touch with the THUNDER PRESS for advertising purposes or gave her the information to do it herself. After that, they became a popular place to host Motorcycle Poker Runs.

I met some nice Piute/Shoshoni(?) people there and had a good visit with them.
My son was a natural with Linda's Iron Puzzles.
Yes, children were allowed in the Pool Table Room.

Cheers, Jay

P.S. I know how to pronounce Wabuska and Nevada,
without pissin' the locals off!

Mon Cher,

The picture says wrong!

"Fokker DrVII" didn't exist to my knowledge.

Fokker built Dreideckers with three wings, their designation was Fokker Dr.I.

Fokker built Doppeldeckers with two wings, the scouts were called Fokker D.I, D.II, D.III, D.IV, D.V, D.VI, and for our purposes, Fokker D.VII.

Just tell the picture that it's wrong and be done with that.

I guess it used to be called the Whistle Stop. These days, it's Linda's Wabuska Bar and Inn. Ed had a stroke recently. I don't think he's doing very good. I don't know what kind of recovery he'll be able to make.

We've decided to take a day trip and visit the picture and the bar. Yes, the bar is a popular biker bar. I'll tell Linda you said hello. See if she remembers you. (There's another cool little bar in Hawthorne....The Dog House Saloon. If you're ever in there, tell Lenn or Glenn, or Anton or Savannah that Victoria said hello.)

Just got back from a most pleasant day trip into the Nevada Outback. Our visit to the Wabuska Bar wasn't nearly as good as our stop at The Dog House Saloon in Hawthorne. If you're ever in Hawthorne, be sure to stop by The Dog House....and tell 'em Victoria Sentcha.

I had a chance to take a closer look at the pic in question. It's not a drawing, afterall. It's a print. The artist is Kenneth W. Chapman. The picture is of a D VIII, no. 697.

Hello Victoria Sentcha,

I googled Kenneth W. Chapman and found over a half a million sites.

The Fokker D.VIII is a monoplane (Eindecker: One Wing Job!).
It was the upgrade of the Fokker E.V.

It sounds like it is a "Signed and Numbered" Print, no. 697.
He would have to be a very well known artist to fetch a good price such as she is asking.
I don't know where the market for S&N Prints has gone since the economy tanked, but I remember that about ten years ago that they were pretty high.
About what you would expect to pay for an original in some cases.
Thanks for the update.

Glad that you had a good time.

I was sorry to hear about Ed. He was no spring chicken when I met him, but quite an active character and a working Well Driller to boot.
Hard work at any age.

I hope that they are doing as best as can be expected, if not better.

VBR, Jay

P.S. IIRC, the reason Linda and I discussed the THUNDER PRESS was she needed to bring in more clientele as they really are out in the middle of No-Where. I suggested listing her Bar as "BIKER FRIENDLY".... It worked.
I use to be very active in Motorcycle Legislation and had learned a few things.
