Long story short:

I flew helicopter tours in Hawaii for 7 years, in an Astar—2 seats up front with me, 4 in back, I used to have “Stitch” from the movie “LILO & Stitch”, in an Elvis suit—-on a surfboard, riding my dash……

I had a rule that kids sit up front with me, and would taunt them to tell me “how high are we”, “How fast we going”, “lets talk about weight and balance”—-Pythagoras etc….. showing them a correlation between the boring stuff they learn in school and the real world…….

One day, I had a “kid” with Downs Syndrome on my flight, he was not high functioning, however, he resonated with Stitch….and his need was greater than mine….he now has Stitch…..

I googled looking for a replacement and found a site at the time with “Gnomads”….. I bought Timothy and the rest is history……
