At last! We finally get a break from all of your informative how to's, helpful advice and cheerful encouragement.

Err...that's not so good. Be safe and hurry back.

These folks called and asked for you to bring a credit card with a low balance and a high limit.

Montreal is LIKE Europe, but not Europe. I thought you were flying across the pond?

No, the across the pond gig fell through. I am firmly entrenched in the US regional aviation world with occasional stops in Canada.

No, I am trying to say that I am putting in 10-12 hour days pulling cable the size of your arm. And at the end of the day, searching fo a PC is hard when you are sleeping from exhaustion. I don't remember it being this hard. man, I am getting old.

Well, I am back. I actually picked up steam as the job wore on. I think I lost weight as well.
I made enough money to paint, re-upholster and change the soft top on my SL.
Alas, that is not where the $$$ is going. Damn kids. Why do they need braces and post- secondary education?
This break is short lived, however. Friday, I am off to the Boeing plant in Seattle for 5 days for a 777 acceptance . My wife is soooo happy.
I returned home to 90 degree weather and a very lonely SL. I am happy to report a second degree sunburn on my neck and shoulders. The season is back!!!

Glad to see you're back, but sorry to hear that there's absolutely NO JUSTICE in this world.

You're sitting there with 90 degree weather while I, here in so-called Sunny SoCal, haven't seen temperatures above 70 for weeks. It's cloudy, miserable and cold. My soft top is going to be dust-welded in place by the time the weather gets warm.

It isn't fair. It just isn't fair.:crybaby2:

I understand how you feel, Trust me.

But I don't have sympathy.

Sorry, gotta go turn on the AC.

Happy Memorial Day to all my American friends.

I am currently celebrating with you in beautiful Seattle.

Actually Everett. And if you like big brand new planes then...beautiful.

I haven't been anywhere yet site seeing but hope to later this afternoon after another aircraft inspection.

I have actually seen two 450SLs here in Mukilteo. In good from far shape.


Enjoy your day.

Chris

Well, I am finally going home today.
My official SL count in Seattle is 5 with the highlight being a 280SL in the exact paint colour as mine.
So that's what a nice one looks like............
