At last

At last I am getting around with my new Knee and hip.
Am looking for a job, have done nothing for long enough.
Guess if I can find someone that will hire an old man I will go out to the BIG Q for the winter

Here is another 1989, 35 FT, 3 Axle Squarestream. Where have they been hiding all these year? I find two in a month and never knew that Airstream had made any of them.
The first posting is a two door this one has only one door.

Back to work

Well back to work on aircraft.17 Oct 2016 I start work again for my old friends at TBM/TASCO at Castle Airport in Atwater CA.I will be overseeing/working on C-130 projects.
Once again my Squarestream will be parked by the pepper tree by the hanger. See page 52,post 715 thru 721.
Sure glade to have a reason now to get out of bed in the mornings.
It is a 30 hour a week job just right for this old cowboy and I can work 5 days for 6 hours or 4 days for 7 1/2 hours a day what ever one I like best.

Enjoy the new work! The C130 is such a great aircraft. I was fortunate to catch a ride (a very, very long ride) from Spain to NC via the Azores on a Marine ac. What a great job to have. I look forward to your posts as always. All the best and safe travels

At work

Well I am back parked under the pepper tree working on the C-130's. I came up here almost a week early so I could take my time setting up,BUT they put me right to work and on my 3 rd day I worked 13 1/2 hrs and also worked on Sat.
I spent my 82 Birthday working,But I do now have a reason to get up and out of bed in the morning.Nice working for some one that want you.
It real is nice to be working just wish it was closer to the house,it just a fact that all those equal opportunity employers that I have applied to for a jobs will never even think about a resume with 64+ years experience working on aircraft from a person 82 years old before putting it in the trash can.
LIFE GOES ON AND A COWBOY MAKES THE MOST OUT OF WHAT HE HAS.

Sometimes you find an enlightened employer. One actually found me. Now I get to "unretire" and get used to going to work every day again.

It is nice to be appreciated at any age. Fortunately my new job does not require any heavy lifting like my last one occasionally did.

This is how you learn to back up your Airstream

This is how I learned to back up my Squarestream in about 1952.
Me on the left. Is this not the California look of the 1950s. Hello Fonzie.
Most have been summer since we did not have leather jackets on.
Photo taken Santa Paula Ca.

In the mid 60s, I learned how to reverse by backing a hay wagon into the barn. It had a drawbar attached to the steerable front axle. The a Model H International Harvester Formal tractor with the tricycle front end made the job easier. The lack of a steerable set of front wheels makes backing a directly attached trailer seem like a piece of cake to put in it's place.

Looks like a one ton Dodge Powerwagon in the photo.

This is a neat historical photo!

Another great photo. Looks like you're happy to be there. It would be a blast to work on that plane. Even better if I could share the experience with my father: retired Navy Master Chief, mechanic and electrician. I'm still learning from him. Enjoy!

Well back to work today.
The weather in Atwater CA is not as nice as AZ.
Back under the Pepper tree.
