6 Feb., 2009 -- And then, Arkansas


Broken trees from last week's ice storm, between West Plains and Ash Flat.


We are in Jacksonville, just north of Little Rock.
Lloyd's renewing his CFI. I'm just along for the ride.

Then, this afternoon...

4 Feb., 2009 -- Airplane! Airplane!


Lynn and Ben practiced a few take-offs and landings just before sunset today.

3 Feb., 2009 -- 6 months ago

Hey, I was so lazy today, I didn't need to go out in the 36 degree WIND, so I didn't.

Looked back six months to 3 Aug., and found Lake of the Ozarks (Val's down there somewhere).
I was returning from Iowa.
Look at all that GREEN, and the boats. I'll bet they weren't there today.

2 Feb., 2009 -- Groundhog Day, I saw my shadow


Six more weeks of winter, according to the old philosophy.
Ice chunks that slid off the roof during the night.



I graduated! No cap, just the elegant gown, to go with the elegant boots.
After the last radiation treatment I got to ring the bell.
Cuz Jody sent me a cowbell from Las Vegas, so I painted it up for the ceremony.
Thanks, Jody!

After a farewell visit from Dr. Nathan, the nurses gathered for a portrait.
Their graduation gift, a bar of chocolate!

1 Feb., 2009 -- Flying Ace tried to fly today




Lloyd and Ben worked their tractor magic (without LAD's help, doggone it). It did help that the temp got up to 63 degrees (this if February, right?) 63 degrees????? Feb. 1 ???????

So, Snoopy, Flying Ace... yeah, I can FLY... I can .... (click on picture to see Snoopy on ramp)

I can taxi to the runway... yeah, I can, I can taxi...




Well, back to the hangar, I can fly I can fly, yes I CAN ... tomorrow.


Last trip to Springfield for awhile. I've had lots of help.
Thanks, Snoopy! (and friends).



That's about as warm and cool with color that you can get.
