January 24 — A-10

Sunday, January 24 — In at 7:45, calm and sunny, nothing on the ramp. A little past noon I finished editing the A-10 pictures taken Friday. WOW! 172 usable pictures! Did more picking up around office. Made a big difference. RETURNED to photo processing of pics taken in 2015, TONS to do, days of photographs simply not processed; just downloaded from memory cards because there was no time. Gazillions to do. Phot’d a visiting Cherokee Six. Worked a little at the model table on the F4F and Piper Super Cub. Really feel stifled without an airbrush in the office, but the fumes would not be welcome with Horizon customers and staff. And the upstairs was chilly again today. There’s no rhyme or reason to the heat situation. MUST spend more time up there Monday. Prepared two JTW books to mail. One a giveaway to a friend in Chicago. Took some trash out. Went home at 5. Day rating: C+

Pictures are more from the January 22 visit by A-10s.  More to come.
