#1 Getting back into form

I took a little inventory the other day and realized I have:

10 rockets in various stages of being built.

2 rockets in various forms of repair

1 tracking scope under construction

etc., etc.

What's a commander to do?

Get back into that shop, and show us some progress!

Sadly, winter returned today. I was going to drive down to Pueblo to fly with John Boren (Estes), and the friendly folks of SCORE, but I don’t do winter flying very well in my advancing years. Maybe will try again in two weeks.

Pueblo and the SCORE team are hosting NARAM-60 in August. It’s a great place to fly (most of the year).

Is anyone “here” attending, besides me?

Yeah winter returned here as well... Keira had a double-header Saturday in softball and we like to froze our @sses off at the friggin' "swamp" (the park her ball field she was playing at is in which is down in the flood plain of the Brazos River). It was about 45 degrees and blowing out of the north at about 15-20... BRRR!!!!

I had two jackets on with a third draped over my shoulders, two hoodies up, and a blanket wrapped around my waist and legs... I wasn't TOO cold... LOL:) Add in the drizzle at one point and it was pretty miserable.

Same this morning but then after lunch the sun came out and it warmed right up into the 60's and was pretty nice...

We've been running the AC for nearly a month now and had to switch back to the heater... it'll be back to the AC tomorrow I bet...

Later! OL J R :)

I took inventory of my stuff awhile ago and discovered that everything I own is either broke, worn out or has a hole in it! :o

It sounds to me like he is referring to his hind end, but then...
