Monday, January 25 — Napped after dinner last night, awoke and worked on Tamiya 1/48 A-10A from 11 to 2, back to bed. Out the door at 9:05. Mailed a few JTW books and into AKM at 9:30, overcast, windy, but nothing on the ramp. Launched a major project with my daily AKM log. I produce the blog by writing each day’s story ABOVE the one I wrote the previous day. I’m going to save and print them moving DOWN the page from January 1 to the next one. LOTS of cutting and pasting. Time consuming as heck. Brought my lunch today. Ate one sandwich at noon and the other about 5. Worked upstairs in Process and Intake Rooms, putting things away, working on the 1/48 F-22 and a few others, sorting articles for maybe half an hour, tired and discontent. That outlook improved after I returned to the office about 3 and welcomed the crew of a Hawker 900 to the office, had a nice chat, and when they invited me to tour the 900, I was happy to grab the camera. Nice fellows. Believe it or not, one of them said he envies ME. Said it looks like more fun than what he does every day. It would have been rude of me to disagree, so I didn’t. Processed pictures and emailed the 15 best to the crew. Went home at 6:50 after 20 minutes upstairs with the F-22. Day rating: B-.
Today’s pictures are of the day’s visiting Hawker 900. The crew love the airplane. This 900 is incredibly sparkling and clean nose to tail, inside and out.
