Jim, put the camera back on auto and then you can fix the photos on the computer—well, I can fix them on iPhoto on my computer. I can't be bothered with all the settings on my camera. It knows how to take good photos on its own.

Then, … take a picture of a flower and have breakfast.

Good timing! Was at the hangar today and pulled out the camera. I call this one Airstreams and Airplanes: the incredible likeness of being!

Anyone care to guess what kind of aircraft this is?

Was in the Air Explorers (Boy Scouts) in the 60's. One of my favorite old airplanes we got to tour. This is a more modern one with the full aluminum tail feathers.....some were fabric covered, believe it or not.

I know the elevators on C-47s were fabric covered! One ANG C-47 pilot of my acquaintance accidentally dragged the tail through a tangled mess of barbed wire just off a taxiway and shredded the fabric on one elevator.

To further complicate things, this was a sort of unscheduled stop to see a girl friend (to hear him tell it, he had one of in every airport) and he wasn't eager to have to call in about it.

In those days they always carried plenty of propeller tape--like duct tape, only green--so after getting the tail untangled from the barbed wire he bandaged up the elevator with lots of propeller tape and took off for home base, arriving uneventfully.

Yep. Fabric and dope on all the control surfaces, including rudder. And, these days it's "hundred-mile-an-hour tape" - but it holds at twice that and more!

I've seen that tape used to patch holes in F-4J Phantom aircraft that resulted from enemy fire.

It stays on at really high speeds....and is a real bear to remove after it has been on for a while. Beats the heck out of duct tape.

I Miss my Trailer

Still without the FaN!

Am waiting for one of the window arms from Airstream. No one at the dealership bothered to inquire if a replacement window came with or w/o the arms.

Haven't had a good sleep in almost a month. (Am a p/t driveway camper - have slept in the trailer almost every night since purchase). I have been really sick since the first of May - can't shake a chest cold. I think this is due to lack of sleep. The trailer is also my "corporate" HQ for my little food company which is creating a business hardship.

This is annoying!!!

Good to hear from you FaN, but sorry to hear you are still without your trailer.

Glad to hear the food business is still up and running, too.

Not getting enough sleep is so debilitating. I used to be one of those people, for years, whose sleep disrupted at the slightest provocation.

My doctor gave me a prescription for Trazadone after Doug died last year, and I take it every night. He is very, very cautious with prescribing medications, but gave me this and said it is something I could take for the rest of my life without side effects,

Very safe and very inexpensive, and the quality of my sleep has improved immensely. Just a thought.

Drop in again soon. We miss your wit here.


Maggie

Like I might do....

"have slept in the trailer almost every night since purchase"

Yup, this is exactly what I would do. But, only an AS.

I fully understand the desire to get out on the road with one's trailer. A lot of other activities have held me down, but, now, in only five days....heading out.

FaN...hope you are feeling better and have your trailer on the road soon.

Dr. Maggie, might see you this weekend.

Hi Maggie,

Thanks for the Trazadone tip. I will ask for it if things don't improve. The flying friend also recommended over-the-counter Melatonin (is one sleeping aid he can take while flying).

So good to hear you are busy with your family - getting out there and doing things too.

The food biz is up and down. Right now I'm looking for a new kitchen. My present rent is too high; have to reduce the overhead!
