I have new props.

Planes are fixed and ready to go.

Only problem is Winter reared it's coooooooold dark head.

Odds are I'll be sledding before flying again.

Cheesy poofs are what Yankees get when they eat Southen Food!! bub, steve

Not too bad this morning.

It was a little dark out there but i managed to pull it off without incidence.

This is a SlowStang



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

It has an oversize wing for slow flying, designed by Gene Bond.

It's that time of year here in NE wisconsin, 37 degrees, 20 to 30 mph wind. Sleet ten miles to the west and snow about 20 miles west of that. Maybe, just maybe, we will get a couple of days left this year to fly, but I doubt it. Nothing to do but watch the Packers beat up on the Vikings! When the lakes freeze over and the wind allows, we can buzz the ice fishermen. See you in May.

Just got back from a great afternoon of flying. Had the Nutball out along with my BC12D Taylorcraft.

Lots of fun! It was just warm enough to avoid getting numb fingers.

Looks like a decent day, starting to get a little sunshine too.

Got to fly last Monday with a couple of the older guys like me. Really cold, damp, and cloudy. Flew twice with my MiniMag and EasyStar. Good flights, with little wind, but froze our "tookasus" off. Can't fly this weekend or next week because of gun deer hunting season. Oh well, "blasting Bambi" is a sport also, and here in Wisconsin is a religion as well.

Bummer. Beautiful flying weather predicted for he weekend, at least for this area this time of the year.Low 50s, partial clouds, wind no higher than 14, but the wife is going in to the hospital Monday morning for a "Procedure", worried because she doesn't know if she'll be in and out, or have to stay overnight, so I guess I'll have to stay home with her. Last two times, she was in about 8:00 AM, out by 2:00 PM.

Thanks, guys. She should be back on her feet within a couple days. Her third pacemaker, the doc isn't sure if she'll need new leads or not. That's the complication.

Yeah, getting old is not fun, but it certainly beats the alternative.
Take a look:

As for my wife, she just had her fourth major surgery this year, last one is rotator cuff surgery.

She had a bad year in 2001, where what was supposed to be a routine abdominal surgery wound up with a staph infection in her spine, 65 days total in the hospital, and $350,000 in medical bills. That staph infection did permanent damage, and she has been totally disabled ever since, having to get around with a walker, or electric scooter.
