Spring has sprung....
I had the most fantastic weekend.

It's spring here. It was in the 70's all weekend, sunny on Saturday, less-sunny on Sunday.

Saturday, I spent most of the day helping Mike with some stuff in his hanger - it's badly in need of some defragmenting. I got started on the annual on Michael's glider, too. I'm trying to decide what I'm going to fix and what I'm going to let go. I know I want to have someone rebuild the back canopy - the plexiglass is bad, and the frame is badly rusted. I think the wings just need a good bath and some lube. The fuselage needs a good bit of corrosion removed, and the interior paint touched up. The external paint job is in terrible shape, but I think I'll wait until winter, then strip and paint it if I'm going to keep it. If I'm not, I'll just give it back to Michael and let him do whatever with it. The other big thing is the trailer, which I don't think is salvageable. I need to clean it up, decide if it's worth keeping, lug it to the junkyard if it's not and buy him a generic trailer, or fix it if it is worth keeping.

Sunday, Mike brought over all the blankets and such that we had in the hanger from when we had hanger parties. At least half a dozen comforters...and they didn't fit in his washing machine, so we washed them in my apartment complex machines. Played too much WoW, had dinner.

Oh, yes, dinner. I found the ultimate dessert (at Cafe Lux, for the locals). It's the dessert which, if I knew I was going to die the next day, I'd want to have for, well, dessert. Chocolate Creme Brulee. It was thick, rich, but not sweet! It had the bitterness of very, very good chocolate, with the creaminess of creme brulee. It was utterly heavenly. My spare-time quest for today is to try to find a recipe.

It was a great weekend.

Spring sprang here about two or three weeks ago, but it went away again and winter has reasserted itself. It's not stopped raining for the last 3 days. I had to turn the heating back on, and we had snow on Snaefell.

Anyway, sounds like a good weekend. I always enjoyed our hang-outs at Mike's hangar. If it's not too hot and mosquito filled, I'd love to do it when I come in August.

Good luck with the HP, it's a nice ship when you're not near the ground! (Don't be intimidated by it, it's not forgiving but it's not that hard either. I only groundlooped it once, but that was mainly due to the stupidity of landing it on a runway which was narrower than the wingspan!)
