    Good thing most of the Cubs around here don't have fabric on the gear.

    Wow!

    You'd better hope he doesn't see you reaching for the master, mags and starter. Then you'll be in REAL trouble!

    Steve,

    You'd better hide the keys for that bird real quick, If not you might find the little fella taking it out for a spin sooner than you know....

    If that is the L4 of Steve's that I flew, the lad will need to start taking steroids to be able to haul back on the stick... since I could barely do it.

    Steve are you talking about my L18C with the non-balanced elevators? That is a 90 hp PA11 that Lee has figured out how to get into.

    I thought the aileron cables needed to be a little tighter than that!? At least he knows which seat to get into!

    It's in for strut replacement. Left gear is a temporary welded up out of wrecks till the good one is painted.

    You got that right. Struts are ready to go on Monday. Just finished welding the gear. Prime and paint Monday and Tue. If ya'll haven't figured it out this is Bryan's PA11.

    Okay, I gotta concede on this one. Lee is a mile ahead of my Jill in this area.

    Great pics Steve!

    You're a lucky man, Steve. I said it before and I'll say it again: Money might be the key to happiness, but happiness doesn't have a lock. Great pics.

    That *is* an inspiring sight for this (fairly) new grandpa, too.

    My oldest grandson turns 4 next month. His other grandpa is also a flyer, and plans to take him up in the Citabria (technically, it's an Explorer but...) this year. Thus far, he's just sat in them making airplane sounds. Hey, I do the same thing!
