Nov 2009 Judy’s Fun Flying with Family & Friends
By Judy Birchler, host of LadiesLoveTaildraggers.com
You just can’t get up on a beautiful and warm (for November 27) Saturday morning and not fly to breakfast. Â No matter how many eggs you’ve got in your refrigerator or how many boxes of Jiffy pancake mix, you’ve just got to fly to breakfast! Â So after taking a quick peek out the window and seeing a very blue, sunny sky we decided to call the kids and head for the airport. Â Since we’re only lucky enough to have one taildragger in the family and a back up Mooney for the hubby to fly, we divided up and headed to Columbus Airport, Columbus, Indiana for that breakfast. Â I don’t care how far you have to fly, if you’ve not been there it’s worth the trip for a hearty breakfast or home cooked lunch.
Since Shelbyville Indiana’s airport prices their fuel about $1.00 less a gallon than where we’re based, it’s also a frequent local stop for refueling. Â What luck to bump into Charlie Laird and his latest project, a 1943 Gull Wing Stinson.

What a gorgeous day. The Stinson is indeed beautiful but I still like our little tube and fabric masterpieces. Your family takes a very nice picture too!

Great story, beautiful mother/daughter photo, and love the comment about “No matter how many eggs you have in the refrigerator…” Here’s hoping you get weather that lets you fly for November breakfast again this year! What fun! ~V
