Texas, we love you! Â The 2016 LadiesLoveTaildraggers Texas fly-in is history now. Those who fought their way by air or automobile to KSLR have some great memories and, no doubt, many new flying friends. With the help of airport manager, Joey Baker, we had a wonderful fly-in, in spite of the marginal weather we were given.
The tradition continues. Lovely lacy hot pink panties mysteriously appeared on my wing spade in the early morning hours Sunday, day of departure. Just like 2014, and 2013, and 2012. I’m pretty sure this is the 4th year I’ve starting packing up my bird for the flight home and caught a glimpse of some sexy color suspended under my wing. Hmmm, someone named Tracy, Jeffries, Thompson, Slocum have been to all fly-ins – I think? Or am I forgetting someone?….. 🙂
