April 26 – P-51D of Air Combat Museum/Mike George

Tuesday, April 26 — In at 10 after visit to dentist promted by my fall at employer Saturday. Saw Air Combat Museum’s un-cowled P-51 in their ramp so I walked over with camera from my office right after parking at AKM. Took some pictures and processed a few. The fruit-in-a-plastic box I intended to eat Monday for lunch was forgotten yesterday when I came out to AKM. It sat in my warm living room and became un-edible after fermenting and rotting a mite. So I walked over to Subway at the terminal and bought a foot-long; ate half of it with a soft drink from the Horizon break room. I’ll enjoy the other half for lunch Wednesday.  Produced magazine box labels and worked totally with sorting mags in the Magazine Room all afternoon, making good progress. Processed more pictures from the Mustang encounter until 7:15 and headed home for dinner — two peanut butter sandwiches  — at 7:30. Day rating B plus

Pictures are from the visit to Air Combat Museum, a five-minute walk from AeroKnow Museum.
