Hot Lips wasn't so Hot

Sally Kellerman was a much better Hot Lips. This one has far too many teeth. Surely there are more than the standard issue 32 in that grusome set of choppers.

Flying My Plane Home

Back in April I bought myself a Grumman AA5-B Tiger.

After 22 hours, spending the night in a shack waiting out tornado warnings,and witnessing my first IFR flight through the clouds (Daylon Bakken at the wheel), I'm home.

Daylon is an amazing pilot. He flies in bad weather all the time for work. When we landed for the storms in Texas we had a 30+ knot direct crosswind(Very Crazy!) and no choice but to get down. He ran out of rudder and welanded on one wheel but it was a pretty smooth landing.

In Payson, az I met Daylon's family. His uncle is a guide for taking peopleon huts for Black Bears.

Catalina by Air

This weekend I had a little flight to Catalina. My friend Dave (who also has a Grumman Tiger)and I met in the air over Dana Point and then flew to the island at 8500 feet. I forgot my camera so I don't have any pictures.

At the restaurant on the airport I had a Buffalo Hot Dog.

Here's a picture of my plane.
