B m

This working sure has taken it toll on my B M in the morning. And I dont mean sitting on the can.I mean the B M you drink as in LOT's of Vodka , Clamato and hot sauce.Now I have to have the B M after work and be for my Vodka and Tonic.
But 2 good drinks at night instead of one in the morning and one at night sure gets me feel good.
REMEMBER THAT TOMORROW IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE.

moving right along...

Sure am glad you cleared that one up...gotta admit, though, that you brought a new elevation in the term "trepidation" with a lead-in like that

One of then reasons I retired at 68. I could not compete with certain illegal aliens who could drive a semi all day long for peanuts. But dont get me started on that. Sal.

Nice

Old aircraft are almost as nice as old Airstreames.In the old days they both where made with loving care and many of both are still being used by folks that restore and use them with the same loving care.
(Photo 1 &2) Boeing B-307.Only 10 made most used by TWA.First pressurized passenger aircraft.Photo taken in Saigon about 1967-68.
(Photo 3) B-47 that I was Crew Chief on at March AFB,320th Bomb Wing,441 Bomb Squadron 1953-54.

Work? or fun?

Well today I took some prop tools down to TBM hanger at Visalia CA
(photo 1 & 2) Help them crate up a C-130 rudder and load it in a truck for a trip to Wisconsin for a custumers aircraft that they are working on there.
( photo 3) Working on gear box on C-130 engine.
Guess I will take my SQUARESTREAM down to Visalia tomorrow and work there for a while,till the parts we need here come in.Do not under stand why we can not get folks to work on the hanger here and why our parts are on back order.Looks like no one wants to work when the State will give them $$$ not to work.
GUESS THE GOVERNMENT HERE HAS NOTHING BETWEEN IT's BIG HAT AND HIS SPURS.
