I hate flying. Every time I did it (during my career) they made me jump out of the damn plane. Now every time I fly I look for the static wire when I come through the door, go figure...

Kinda like the chopper pilot in Nam who's idea of a landing was 20 feet off the deck.

This was an airfield in Boardman, OH (Youngstown) and they restored them at this airfield along with the Beech Staggerwings. They had some really cool old planes and made them look brand new. Loved that kind of thing.

Years ago when I got my tailwheel endorsment Their was an older pilot that had a Stearman. After I soloed the J3 he took me for a ride in it. He let me fly it for most of an hour. One of my favorite memory's

Hmm, maybe it was caused by what I had, I thought it was the drugs. I was feeling hot all last night.

They won't but my problem is every time I get a virus my nose gets stopped up and won't go away till I finally wind up with a sinus infection from the bacteria growing in the mucous. The steroid shot I got really shrinks those sinuses but you can only get one a max of every six months. Also cures all my aches and pains all over, but it runs down you immune system so you can't take those things much.

All those stomach acid reducers are h2 histamine blockers, claritin and the like are h1. Just learned all about that recently from the medic on the oil rig I hang out on.

Thanks Elvis, good idea on the 250

Here is the last plane I had, a 1995 Beech A36 Bonanza. Little slower than the Mooney but way comfortable. Air conditioned too.

Ok, I'm done with the plane stuff. Sorry for the hijack.





On a more depressing note, I turned 67 today.....ugh....
