February 27

Saturday, February 27 — Had a hard time staying asleep and drove straight to my employer to work 9:00 to 2. Had a rocky time there because the owner doesn’t give a damn if I freeze. He thinks a reading on the thermostat thermometer 60 is warm enough. He doesn’t care if where I sit there’s a hell of a draft and I’m sure it’s a damn site colder there. Accomplished a fair amount of article, clip and scrap trimming. But I’m tired. Back to the airport where it’s just warm enough. The weather was just warm enough outside that there seemed to be no heat in the building, in my office or upstairs. So I fiddled around for awhile, made a birthday card for the daughter of upstairs resident whose name is Piper, great kid, put it into a box along with the 1/48 scale Bandai Piper Super Cub I made to give her on this day, her birthday. Was notified by her mom via e that she had gone to a friend’s slumber party. I left the airport about 5:50, delivered the Super Cub to her mother and had the rocky night I knew I was going to have, I warmed up the house okay, but there was no AKM work to do besides modeling at home, I’m not happy with that room as it is and it was chilly in that room so I ate a salad with lots of ICED TEA (no more wine in the house and don’t plan to buy more for a long time), read some aviation books I had brought home, Napped four hours. Day rating: D.

Pictures are of the model I gave to young friend Piper. She’s 12 years old and a super “cub.” I didn’t attempt a more authentic approach here.   I was in a rush; wish I had taken more pictures, but that’s okay.
