I really appreciate all the kind words of gratitude but my motives are not totally altruistic. Frank is going to swap me some labor on my 61 (The Buddha Baby) which is at his shop. If I do decide to resurect the 63 (yet unnamed) I, we will be searching for replacement windows like the ones I'm sending him.

They're Out

Frank the windows are out. They're not perfect and will need some attention to make them right.
I'll be boxing them up tonight and will ship them tomorrow.

Still a very good thing as it solves problems for both of you.

Wow you have sharp eyes. I'm surprised you didn't see the robin's egg sitting there as well. The egg and the tent peg are just incidentals that I pick up during my journeys around the campground.

Frank a nice man in a brown suit driving a brown truck now has your windows. They are on the way. UPS says to expect them on Monday. I sent you the tracking number by e-mail so you can check on their progress.

Yesterday, at 11 am a nice man, wearing a brown suit and driving a brown truck banged on the shop door. He was carrying a box marked "gift" and sweating profusely. Yesterday we hit 85 here with close to the same percent of humidity. He announced he needed my signature, and proceeded to tell me about his Uncles Airstream and many of the fond memories of camping with it in West Virginia.
In the box I found two windows exactly like the two destroyed by me. One of them was already polished up.
Later in the day my new glass guy(new to me, my old glass guy died after 56 years in business) called to ask if he could deliver the glass after lunch today.
Things are looking up.

Now the irony of this story...
I am about to go over to my storage yard and remove windows from a wrecked trailer. Two of those windows are needed for Wasagachris' Buddha Baby project. Hopefully the rest of the windows are involved in some kind of karmatic event like this one.

Thank you Chris.

Frank I'm so glad they arrived safely. I was so worried that I didn't do a good job with the packaging and they would be damaged.
The packaging material will give you some local reading material for you to peruse. When I first moved here from the big smoke (Toronto) and read the crime report I couldn't help but chuckle. Most occurences were for stolen bicycles or missing things from garden sheds. No drive by shootings, no murders. no armed robberies etc.
BTW what goes clip clop, clip clop. bang,bang, clip clop, clip clop? Awswer: an Amish drive by shooting. Sorry but I love that joke.
Sorry I didn't have time to polish the other one but I knew you needed them ASAP and I thought you would like to see how bad they were before cleaning & polishing.
That's great that the glass is ready. Will you be able to get them prepped, polished and installed for the up coming Memorial day weekend?
Old Airstreams never die. They become organ donors for needy recipients. Now that's Kharma baby.
You are very welcome Frank. I'm really glad I could help. After all that's what streaming is all about. Fun ,friendship and coming together with a helping hand if anyone needs it. It's too bad that sometimes not all of us feel that way.
