March 8 –Bombardier Global 5000

Tuesday, March 8 — In at 9:20 after taking care of my drivers license situation at the Sec of State’s office, cloudy, predicting rain, Piper Archer on the ramp, the CFI with it was waiting in the lounge for his student to finish his written exam. Had two visits from a fellow flying away as passenger charter and another; both nice, both brief. Continued to sort pictures and now have fewer than a thousand to go in the current batch, There are SEVERAL MORE batches to go, plus re-directing pics placed wrong in the first place, mostly airplanes filed in Misc. Aviation files. Fruit for lunch and nibbled on the rest all afternoon. I can live with prepared fruit in a clear plastic box from Shop N Save.. I don’t feel put out or under-privileged. Felt sleepy about 1:00 after sorting pictures for 30 minutes. I’ve never gone to sleep sitting erect at my office desk, but I believe I will, sooner or later; just hope I don’t fall over in the wrong direction and break any models. Lay down on the Process Room carpet with a few throw pillows for the head. Slept a little but not much over an hour and a half or so. Felt a little better after arising from the floor and MADE myself start to work on models. The atmosphere downstairs — lots of people heard through my open office door and NOBODY visiting — seemed oppressive to me. Everyone was fine, I could have shut the door down there, but I wanted to make it easy for people to visit. . . which nobody did aaaaaaaaaaaannd I didn’t want to go home, via supermarket, in daylight, so I masked and painted a light white base coat for the Arctic B-36, more white for a DH Sea Vixen and began decaling a 1/72 F4F-4. All of that’s good progress, but I had not snapped out of the somber attitude. Back to office at 6:20. Departed for home, dinner, and reading at 6:50. Day rating: D+

Pictures of the Global 5000 were taken as I was leaving for home March 8. It had arrived sometime in the afternoon with plenty of daylight, but I’m confident it was its arrival that caused the minor tumult in the lobby which drove me upstairs. That’s  fine. It was perfectly parked for daytime photos, but I did not want to distract the travelers with me taking pictures. No one was around when I left, so I took the Sony Cyber-shot with me as I left the building and enjoyed taking the pictures. Processed them this morning before posting this blog.
