I think maybe the cops raided his house after the helicopter returned to base.
Nowhere to be found :P

I talked with Jim on Friday -- his honey-do list is almost as long as mine, plus he's got TWO events within a short drive of home, plus his wife had other plans.

I believe that there may have been an Executive Veto from the SO (Senior Officer or Significant Other).

I checked the MAAC webiste and the SE zone had something like eight events on Saturday, with about four in the East End of the GTA.

Also, Jim may be doing some serious research on his next model, which may or may not include having Barbie waving her hands at the crowd during the low inverted pass.

I figure that I'm going to get some words from Jim tomorrow when I go over to the Atrium for coffee and loop back by his desk.

Nice to be missed ... I guess.

Sorry to disappoint "Hurri", I hope today made it up to you all.

The truth is I spent an unplanned late evening with friends, slept in, nursed a hangover (I'm not much of a drinker) and puttered around in the workshop through the late afternoon. I did manage to get 2 coats of base paint on my Waco, does that count for anything?

Unfortunately I spent some time with the same group Saturday night, I took it a lot easier on myself but, I still wasn't up to transporting and assembling/disassembling anything large. Thank goodness for the little Pitts, it fits in the CRV with the wings on.

'byrocat', I'm gonna have to be less open with you, you're becoming a bit of a gossip.

Oh, and to the rest of my "fans" , I'm up to my ears with work and honey-do right now, with a vacation just around the corner (off to Rhinebeck ), I'm not planning on attendng any more events until Kitchener, hope to see you all there.....
