AeroKnow Museum’s office at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport has something I don’t have at work and home: air conditioning. I have a window unit at home, but I’ve not installed it this year because more than 50 percent of the time I am home, I am sleeping or lying awake under the bedroom ceiling fan. The rest of my life is spent here at AeroKnow Museum or at work. My employer turned on the showroom air conditioning for the first time yesterday; set the thermostat at 80 degrees and turned it off two and a half hours before going home for the day and letting me lock things up at 5. “I don’t want you to forget to turn it off when you leave,” he said. One thing I’ve decided I can’t live without is a cell phone. I purchased a Samsung AT&T ph0ne from Radio Shack a few weeks ago, and I’m getting to know it the way my great-grandfather approached his first horseless carriage. But it is essential for anyone who wants to know about the museum, to arrange to visit it, to learn from it, to connect with me wherever I am. Once connected, we can arrange things.
Starting today, I am carrying the phone with me 24/7.
The number is 217-361-4494.
