May 18 — Cessna Citation VII, Cessna CJ1

Wed, May 18 —  In at 8:50 after a “rocky night”, sleep wize, at home. Sunny, calm, Swearingen on the ramp. Took a fast three pics of it. Processed pictures and worked on models all day, mostly the U-2. When I went out to  phot the photogenic Citation VII and CJ1 with the interesting logo on the vert stab, met a mom and her to sons from eastern Illinois who were standing at the fence, “just watching the  airplanes,” a delightful encounter. She’s involved with the Honor Flight program and came to  Springfield to interview a potential future guide. We chatted about 15 minutes, with her permission I took their picture and returned to my office smiling. Had a terrific model club meet. Went home at 9:20. Day rating: B. I’m a mite distracted by what I want to work on and what I need to work on, and rough nights aren’t helping.
