January 14 — C-26

Thursday, January 14 — To post office and mailed several Walker books. To AKM about 9:20 and before my first cup of coffee, went to interview a fellow for my second Springfield Business Journal article. Things went very well. Took a few pictures of airplanes in a hangar. Returned to office by 11, feeling very tired — it had been a very rocky night, sleep-wise. Processed pictures for the article by 12:30. Crew of a US Army C-26 visited WelcRm and permitted me to phot their bird inside and out, a VIP version with special seating and a “head” in back. Nice bird! I was tired and couldn’t focus on the SBJ article with a lot of JTW book clutter and feeling of general malaise. Re-positioned what I call the Tabb desk (David Tabb gave it to AKM before he moved to Indianapolis) so I don’t have to turn my back on the office door when I’m working at it. Big improvement. Napped from about 4 to 5 with my head on a pillow on that desk. Refreshed, processed the C-26 pictures. Left for home to meet with duplex residents. No problems there. Day rating B+

Pictures of the visiting US Army-operated C-26 were taken at SPI, early afternoon January 14, 2016. More were taken and saved in the C-26 file.
