January 13

Wednesday, January 13 — In at 9:25, cold and overcast C-12 on the ramp, close. A USAF crew visited, said they and the 12 are based in Dayton . I was wrapped up in the blog and didn’t consider stopping to phot the 12 until it was too late. Next time I’ll photograph first and type later. Printer called that the books were ready. Started lunch at my desk. Heard F-15s in the pattern but it took too long for me to stop what I was doing, rush out and take a picture with the long lens. The one I took was unusable. A biz jet charter crew visited for 15 minutes in the WELCOME Room, and one of them took the tour upstairs for another 20 minutes. Gave them a Lincoln Flyer newsletter and brochure. They gave me their thanks. Finished my lunch. To Capitol Blueprint to pick up the books and paid for them. Am delighted with the production. Spent the rest of the day processing the books: numbering the first 40 (“11 of 200,” “25 of 200” etc and packaged several to mail Thurs morn. Three people e’d me that they were tired or under the weather and had to go to bed early, another one is in Singapore . . . so the there was plenty of room for the four of us who attended. But things were a mite “subdued,” and we adjourned early, about 8:30. I spent the rest of the evening getting Walker books ready to mail and went home at 9:50, feeling pretty glum despite the considerable significance of bringing the books back from the printer. Day rating: D
