April 22 — Ford Tri-Motor

Friday, April 22 — In at 9:05 after paying bills downtown. Sunny and calm. Saw a perfectly parked Cessna 170 and took a few pictures from behind the fence. Nothing spectacular, but hey, it’s flying.   Found a bankers box full of donated magazines I had not started to process, so I did that the rest of the morning and into the afternoon. Excellent progress. FOUND the earliest issues of Air Enthusiast which I thought had been stolen. GREAT JOY THERE. Spent the entire afternoon upstairs, a little sweaty but not bad. Came down about 4 and processed a bunch of pictures of the Ford Tri-Motor visit last year, TONS of processing and sorting to do from 2015!  Departed  for home at 7:00. Day rating A

Pictures are of the Tri-Motor taken last year.
