January 7 — Robinson R-44

Thursday, January 7 — In at 8:30, overcast and quiet. UH-60 on the ramp with passengers & crew in the lobby. No one visited. Put things from last night away. Very quiet morning. Processed pictures all morning . . . again. For first time since before Christmas, treated myself to lunch at Terminal Subway. Eric D from model club visited to pick up his models and tools. He’s not going to have time for the club in the foreseeable future. Finished my sandwich and, as usual after Subway, felt very sleepy. Napped with my head on my arms and a throw pillow on my desk for an hour. Awake again and phot’d a Falcon 900 towed earlier from hangar to ramp. Processed more pictures from August. IT NEEDS TO BE DONE. Started December Lincoln Flyer. Accomplished a lot, but there’s a long way to go. I’ll hunker down after I bring the JT Walker books back from the printer. Published lyrics to a song I wrote at my personal blog. Went home at 9:00, happy with the day. Rating B.

Pictures are of an R-44 taken last August. The pilot spent several days taking pictures of the nearby Illinois State Fair in progress.
