Old Paint
« on: December 14, 2007, 06:06:28 pm »

Today was a sad day in a happy kind of way.  I sold my airplane.

I went out to the corral this afternoon, just to say "adios, amigo".

I'm trying to be a man about it.

Maybe I'll take up golf (finally) or canasta or pinochle.

We watched "White Christmas" last night with Bing Crosby.  General Waverly had a tough letter from the Pentagon and decided maybe he could learn to play horse shoes after all.  I admire his courage.

My first international trip in a prop plane.

My first missed approach.

My first blind landing on a foggy morning.

My first ice-up at 25,000 feet.

My first view of the coastal mountains of Mexico.

Sincerely, thanks for the memories N71NB.
