February 24 – Beech Baron, John Thornton Walker book

Wednesday, February 24 – In at 11:15 after almost not coming in because of heavy snow that started last night and continued today. The roads were fine, thanks to temps in the mid-30s. Listed picture scans for CD #B-17 until 2:40 straight through. Two Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for lunch. Am no longer spending time here at the office looking for and clipping aviation news from the newspapers. I will do that at my employer’s on Saturdays. I am REALLY walking away from Intake Activities and feel good about concentrating on listing scans on CDs. Worked on the new Lincoln Flyer the rest of the afternoon except for another unhurried conversation from Lonesome, Jaded Friend hereafter to be known as LJF to save time typing. Back to the newsletter until it was time to go to the model club meeting which went well. Started an old AMT kit of a Beech Staggerwing worked on an AMT kit of a Lockheed Vega floatplane and finished a birthday surprise for the daughter of upstairs resident friends. Went home at 9:25 okay with the day but still feeling a little ragged from Tuesday night’s sleeping challenge. Glad to be close to the end of the next newsletter. Day rating B – .
Yesterday I heard the throaty, raspy “song” of the Baron shared Tuesday. It was pointed the opposite direction, so I phot’ed the right side with props in motion. The picture of my new John Thornton Walker book is featured on page 1 of the February AeroKnow Museum Lincoln Flyer newsletter. I’m so happy with it, I’m sharing it with you, too. Books are $22.oo postpaid First Class. It’s a fundraiser for the museum.
