What a surprise, just today my son brought me a great gift to fight off the flaming liberals at the gliderport. It is a Bulgarian AK47 with 2000 rounds of ammunition. Thank god that I raised this kid correctly, educated him and he achieved the status of a Structural Engineer, PE.
He advised me to be careful of the soft trigger, and he told me to take it with me at all times to fend off all the flaming liberals even at the gliderport. I told him not to worry, I carry two pistols in the 27 and Eileen has one in the 24. Nothing like a family of glider pilots being well prepared for the Flaming Liberals.
I was hoping to make plans to fly around Lake Okeechobee again this week, but the weather is not in my favor. I have never smelt anything better than Hoppy,s # 9 gun oil or flew better that a ASW. Bob
Many years ago in my first US contest, newly arrived from the UK, untutored in US
geography and politics, we were flying a free distance out of Adrian, forecast as usual to be
a poor day. Seemed pretty good to me and I blundered on, heading down wind, staying high till the
thermals weakened and I was out of map. Following a river in a deep valley( probably the Ohio )
till I was down to 1500 ft and over an unknown small town, forest ahead, I elected to land on a school
playing field; quickly small crowd gathered, asked the usual questions.
I volunteered that I could have gone ten miles further but could see no fields ahead.
Ah, said one man " good thing you didn't, over there is West Virginia and in them hills the locals
figure a plane must belong to the Revenuers and they'd 'a strung you up"
