November 26 – early morning Mooneys

Thursday, November 26 — In at 7:15, threatening rain, just the Mooney 231 on the ramp. I brought donuts from yesterday’s trip  Hy-Vee grocer and put the box on the Horizon lobby counter after taking a few for me. Very quiet around here. Spent until almost 9 trying to get a bunch of pictures and text arranged right in the blog.Culled articles from some recently donated AOPA Pilots. Worked on November Lincoln Flyer. No aircraft traffic on the ramp by 10:10. FINISHED the November LincFly by 2:00. WOW! I dread updating the email list. Went home at 3. Still only that one 231 on the ramp. Day rating: C

Remembering Peter, Paul and Mary’s wonderful recording of Early Morning Rain, here are pics of that I discovered on the ramp this morning November 27. We had a recent arrival, another Mooney, probably came in yesterday after I departed for home. In this light, it was impossible to read the text below the logo on the newbie’s (white, blue and gold) vertical stab. I even took the Canon out and the best I could do — barely readable — is the last picture. I could have waited for better light, but I wanted to finish this post while it was still early and I could do something else here before leaving for a full day at employer about  8:45. As things turned  out, there’s much more light as I write this at 8:40, but it’s still pretty grey out there. I may try for better just before I leave for work. I”ll be back here at the airport by 5:30.
