    Default Movin' on

    As many of you know, I have been building an airplane in my garage. With the pressures of self-employment and the current economy, the plane has been back-burnered for a while, along with my flying activities in general. I put an ad online for the plane, got a few responses, and finally a guy made me an offer.

    He drove all the way from Newport, NC in a Chevy pickup with a flat bed trailer. We loaded everything up, he paid cash, and my aircraft building era is now history.

    No, it's not like the old adage about the second happiest day of an airplane/boat owner's life being the day he sells it. I don't know; I seem to be numb to the thrill of material things. I'm still open to owning a plane one day, but it'll be something already flying, and easy to manage.

    Giving up a dream can be pretty tough. But very often a step backward is the first step forward of a new one. Keep on keeping on, Jonh!

    You are young and smart as a whip and you will be okay. Just a matter of timing and patients. Life is a chess game and it isn't over for you yet. I have a few things simmering myself, but I know they will boil. When they do boil I will be on a great high. Same as you. Just don't get depressed and give up on your dreams. Right now things are their lowest, and that means you will look back on them in amusement.

    Well, last night I did check out some online ads for planes. Not that I'd go there any time soon, but there were some nice ones.

    Do you happen to have one of those Pratt & Whitney turbines and a control servo for the automatic folding wings left over? That's all I need to finish my F-14 kit and then I'm gonna buzz Cool Top.

    If you move down here, I'll go time share with you on an amphib.

    Check this one out and tell me it doesn't get you thinking. One of them only has 3 hours on it, all test pilot time!

    Thanks, but Seawinds are too rich for my blood. They're more for idle rich doctors with a lot of time on their hands.

    Here is about all I can handle. Not that it isn't a TON of fun...

    It's one thing if a bird strike takes out your engine. It's a whole nuther thing when a goose decapitates the pilot!

    A Seawind costs about half what a tract home costs in San Diego. You need to dream bigger dreams. Better to aim high and miss than aim low and hit.

    Yeah, but I knows dozens of losers in San Diego with their very own ticky-tacky tract home. The point was, you have to dream it before you can attain it. Even if you fall short, you could end up with a nice 172 on floats or something.

    Yes, and I'm dictating this post using my mind powers while I remain frozen in stasis awaiting a cure for whatever killed me.

    Ticky-tacky: are they not breath mints?

    I've looked on many women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times. Maybe if I had gotten laid, I wouldn't be such a nincompoop?

    It's from a Malvina Reynolds song but I prefer Pete Seeger.

    Good songs have a way of doing that. The test of time.
