Purr Lexus - The most beautiful girl in the world[edit]

DOB 6/18/1996 - DOD 1/5/2015 - 9:28am. Rest in Peace little girl.

Purr Lexus a Perfect Persian Kitty 18 years of age.


I hope no one minds. I would like to tell the story of my little girl Purr Lexus. I had spent the 1995 football season with the SF 49ers. The project was over and I moved back to So Cal. My salt water fish tank had broken and I was forced to give/trade for credit my sea life at Sand Bar pets. A year later, a young lady I was with convinced me that my home, over the San Clemente pier, "needed a kitty". I tried to resist and ended up at that same pet store a few hours later. I saw a lot of domestic cats and, in a special cage right up front were 2 little fuzz balls. I opened the door and said to myself, lets see if either of these two have any love. In seconds she had climbed into my hand curled up and just started purring like no cat I have ever seen. I was smitten and asked about the price and my pending credit. Well she was a pure bread 900 dollar kitty, trying to put her down she would have nothing to do with it. I paid the balance and she went home in my lap, just the way she left us today purring all the way. The last few weeks have been hard, it was clear she was not doing well and when she stopped eating Friday, I knew it was time for her to go. We spent most of the weekend just cuddling and with her on my chest. She had a extremely advanced cancer and there was no hope for any type of recovery. Her entire life she had know nothing other then love and pampering, I treated her like the princess she was and always will be to me. She out lived many of my friends and family and I know that her pain is over, and she departed this world, in my hands just the way she came to me. Nothing but love to her final moments. I can not say that I have ever had anything for 20 years, much less a sweetheart like her. Good bye girl your forever a giant piece of my heart.

Adding GPS[edit]

WPPilot, could you add the GPS data to your photo of San Joaquin Hills? Where exactly in the air was it taken? If you look in the lower left hand corner of the photo you can see what pilots refer to as Signal Peak, this is a inbound waypoint for pilots approaching John Wayne airport, altitude is apox 3000 at this waypoint. My flight path was west of the 73, based upon the photos details and the San Joaquin resevior is seen as well. 33.61798 -117.82296 --WPPilot (talk) 16:34, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Aerial photos and Balboa Island street[edit]

Hello, I enjoy looking at your OC photos, especially aerial ones! :) I've created a new category called Category:Aerial photographs of Orange County, California. It would be great if you could use it for your new uploads. BTW, I have a question about File:Balboa Island Main Street photo D Ramey Logan.jpg. Isn't this "Marine Avenue" on Balboa Island? Balboa Peninsula has a "Main Street", but Balboa Island doesn't. Judging from some of the shops, it looks like Marine Avenue. Could you clarify? I've been trying to reorganize places and streets in L.A. and Orange Counties. Your input would really help. Thanks in advance. --Nandaro (talk) 16:53, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes that is Marine Avenue, thatnks for the heads up as well as making the category. --WPPilot (talk) 19:20, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Nice photos[edit]

Hi there mate, I'm having a look at some of your aviation photos, very nice additions to here on Commons. I look forward to seeing even more from you in the future :)

One thing I did want to ask you is when you upload photos in the future, e.g. File:Embraer Phenom 100 photo D Ramey Logan.jpg could you include in the description which airport you took the photo at; this way we can include photos in the airport categories as well.

Keep up the great work! Cheers, russavia (talk) 00:05, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

An Invite to join Aviation WikiProject[edit]

Hi, you are cordially invited to join the Aviation WikiProject! We're a group of editors working to improve Commons' coverage of aviation. This includes aircraft, airports, airlines and other topics.

We look forward to welcoming you to the project! russavia (talk) 00:06, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Here is the cutest possible kitten for you

Hi WPPilot: I read about Purr Lexus today and wanted to send my condolences. I lost my old girl this year too and I know that she is still with me and gone too... it's very hard and I wanted to offer you my sympathy. Looking through your gallery was amazing. You have gorgeous photos. I really enjoyed looking at them; what an eye! Also, I appreciated the saga about the 40footyacht, the cellphone and the velcro; what an amazing story - sounds like a lot of fun - and totally something an awesome photographer would do with hours to spare!! Please let me know if I can be of any small service to you here on Commons? Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 01:11, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

G'day, and apologies for the nomination; I Googled "D Ramey Logan" after the nom and a bunch of Commons files came up, which led me to realize the true situation. However, the cockpit is misidentified; if I had to put money on it I would say it is a DC-4 cockpit. Again, my apologies. Cheers YSSYguy (talk) 22:13, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
@WPPilot, I have closed out this deletion nomination as spurious.
@ YSSYguy, Please take more time before nominating for deletion images from featured photographers with kazillion uploads. If you'd like to find real images to work on, check out Category:Images without source which has thousands of images needing attention! If you need any help with editing, please let me know. Ellin Beltz (talk) 22:33, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
It's a DC-7 cockpit. Bidgee (talk) 01:54, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Bidgee, thanks for fixing that. Cheers! --WPPilot (talk) 05:42, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Home Work Assignment 1[edit]

Great sounds like you are making some headway. Commons supports the primary Wiki projects. Make a page on EN.wikipedia.com for yourself and start editing. Do not use the preq. of 75 edits that you are trying to achieve so as to participate in the picture voting. Just start contributing and over time you will build up a edit count that allows the participation here. Do some more photos, find local landmarks. Look at pages near to you or your interests and think of how you can make it better, using your own self created images. If you like I will give you some homework :) Find 5 locations, items, things or products that have pages and poor images. Using your camera go get better pictures, upload them and then place them on the pages that you have identified ok. --WPPilot (talk) 21:55, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Alright. I will begin that goal sometime around next week. It's kind of cool that you're helping me conform to the general standards here. The camera though, it broke while I was skateboarding. (Hit the ground too hard) However, I'm pretty sure that my parents are getting me a new camera for my birthday this Sunday. I look forward to becoming a regular here at both Commons, and at the regular Wikipedia.Skate Shady (talk) 22:06, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

User:Skate Shady: Home Work Assignment 2[edit]

Start helping at one of the boards/featured sections. While I spend most of my time on the English Wikipedia, here in commons you have other places that you can contribute to also gain some "creditability" for lack of a better word. Commons:Help desk & Commons:Village pump both great places to read some of the other issues/fixes/comments, ask questions and interact with other editors. Find me 5 pages, on the English Wikipedia that are topics that interest you and post the links on the bottom of my En talk page, that you will find here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:WPPilot perhaps find pages on things that we can work on together so you understand how we improve the site. Tell me how you think you can make the page better and lets do a review of them ok. You have your work cut out for you

Use of your photos[edit]

Hey Pilot, I've got a project I have to do for my U.S History class. And I need to find some photos of artifacts that represent the 1920's culture. Do you mind if I use one of your photos? Specifically one of the photos you have of buildings. Thanks, Skate Shady (talk) 16:49, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Everyone is more then welcome to use them. I donate them, to the site for that reason. I use what is know as CC 4 attribution required, so in summary you only need to attribute the photo, to me, i.e. "Photo D Ramey Logan/WPPilot, Wikipedia commons" --WPPilot (talk) 16:53, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
