First Flight and Things I'd Rather Do Than Work

I took my RC plane out yesterday and today. I need to have virtually no wind for this trainer of mine to work. Either the motor isn't strong enough or my piloting skills aren't what they should be to fly it with any sort of breeze. I had it airborne but was having a difficult time turning and compensating for the wind...and there wasn't much. Anyway, on my last pass I got a bit too close to a tree in the parking lot of Hosanna and clipped the left wing. It broke in a few places but I've got it on the mend thanks to some 5 minute epoxy.

Tammy and I were going to bed last night and I commented that it was "back to work for me tomorrow". I told her that I had a fun time on our trip to Winona and running around town with her the previous few days. I said, "you know...I'd like to relive the past four days all over again rather than go back to work tomorrow even if it means that I have to have the colonoscopy procedure again." We both laughed. It's a sad day when I'd rather go through a colonoscopy than go to work but such is life working for vindictive, mean spirited and short sighted management within the FAA.

Yeah, I know what you mean!
