Nov 2010 Judy’s birthday fun!
OK, so this isn’t exactly big news, but a great birthday that involves taildraggers just has to get some face time! Â I’m actually amazed any kind of flying happened at all since I’ve been on jury duty all week, meaning I was calling in every evening to see if my number “13” was called. Â I slipped by Monday and Tuesday with the last number called being “12”, knowing that on Wednesday, my birthday, they would call me for sure. Do you believe they jumped to “16” and I was off the hook, leaving me with one single obstruction to a perfect birthday – WORK! Well, one quick email and I got that checked off my list and finally, a fun day awaited.
I called my good friend Susan Theodorelos, Waco owner and pilotÂ extraordinaire, Â and suggested she take a long lunch so I could meet her at Moraine Airpark for lunch. Not only did she take a long lunch, she took the entire afternoon off, borrowed a 90 hp Champ and away we went for a 2-Champ, fun flying afternoon!
Well, maybe it has Susan’s name on the title but sure would be nice if every airport courtesy car looked this hot!
Here’s the Happy Champ doing what it does best!
So the break down; MQJ…Shelbyville…Norris Field (quick grass strip visit)… Moraine Airpark… Red Stewart Airfield… Middletown… buzz Norris Field… back to MQJ. Wow, what a great day and made it home before the sunset so no turning into a pumpkin today!
