March 17 – Dornier 328Jet, Gulfstream G.V

Wednesday, March 16 –In at 8:20, cool, sunny & windy. Had another ragged night last night. Glad to take a break from picture processing today! Working SOLO I moved the two four0drawer filing cabinets upstairs after taking the drawers out and taking them up separately. Not as hard as I feared. At first I thought I’d “install” them in the Intake Room which I SIGNIFICANTLY re-configured for them. Then I decided to place them – plus the two-drawer filing cabinet I moved upstairs late yesterday — where I needed them most: in the Research Room. SMART MOVE, but it took a lot of moving books and boxes and more around to make it work. Also did major re-arranging in the Process Room. BUSY DAY. Had half a box of cut fruit for lunch, and at the rest at the end of the afternoon. It was excellent. Spent the entire day working upstairs, This is the most radical improvement in about two years here. I was able to empty several storage boxes in the course of putting those files into the cabinets. I also added workspace to the Model Inventory and Video Watching Room AND the Surplus Room though I have a lot left to do before I’m finished in the SurpRm. Altogether MAJOR EFFORT, but GREAT SATISFACTION. Took no new pictures of ANYTHING. Stopped only because I had to get ready for the model club meeting tonight. I will continue tomorrow. Model club was talktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalktalk. I felt like I was trying to turn left to head north onto Dirksen Parkway exiting Falcon Hobbies on the west side of the street during evening rush hour. I could have left my voice in my office for the whole meeting because I almost didn’t use it at all. That’s okay. On the plus side, I made progress with the Ju-287 and started the 1/48 Special Hobby Fairey Firefly. Club was leaving by 9:30. I checked email and Fb and was out the door for home at 9:45. Day rating: A.

Pictures are from Monday’s visit by candidate Clinton and media entourage. The last picture in the 328Jet set is your earnest blogger, Job Conger. The pilot asked if I’d like him to take a picture of me in the left seat, and I was honored/happy to hand him the camera for the picture.
