Default where does the time go???

Well a whirlwind summer has come and pretty much gone. I was watching the Tennessee football game last night thinking wow, fall is here... well not officially but close. School has started back, football has started back and a hint of the season change is coming too.

I have been so busy this summer with my wife's surgery, taking care of my aging mother, my son going back to college, having to travel to Maryland for business... it seems like it never ends. I went out to my workshop this morning to look for something before work and saw all my planes and it felt like I was looking at them again for the first time...

Man I need to go fly!

Yeah no doubt. It has been stupid hot here all summer. The few times I have gone out i end up coming home before 11:00 soaking wet with sweat. It does take the fun out of it for sure.

This weekend is supposed to be nice so I am looking forward to going out tomorrow morning maybe. Depends on the honey do list as she is off tomorrow as well.

I hear you Bill summer went fast and I didn't do much flying this time. With all the camping we did this year that took up a lot of time. Then throw in the yard work, grand kids, and painting rooms inside feel like I went into a time-warp. Just to make up for it I am pulling the camper down to a campground this weekend, and it will stay there till OCT.10 I might as well try to speed fall along too.
Now if I could just figure out how to do this with winter months I would be golden!

Both my sisters, my brother, their families and mom and dad will be at our house this weekend and I'll be prepping the camper for next weeks trip to go to the "Battle at Bristol".
Gotta see my boy play the national anthem and march on that field in front of 160,000+ people!

It just never ends.

Actually, it's the Time Fairy, 2nd cousin to the Tooth Fairy. When you are asleep she steals some of your time, but doesn't leave money; in fact she takes all the loose change in the furniture cushions, and also moves things around to make you think you're losing your memory.

true Don, most of it figures itself out at this point. Leaved has already been submitted and the countdown begun.
