    Nice! Must be hot in the NE. Watch out for leeches. I still got 2' of snow in a backyard pile chilling beverages. Local float pond finally melted yesterday.

ID:	61217Great group heading to the Northeast STOL Contest at 83N short stopped at the farm and made a night of it. Hmm Judy, maybe we should mow a little more grass next year just in case.

    From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be
    found in all corners of the earth."

    Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

    I’m ready for float flying.

    I’m going to have to start scheduling “fly with Tom” time in the 2 weeks between Texas and float season, and then the 2 weeks between the WAD and Texas. Either that or hide the floats.

    You’re not wrong.
    I, on the other hand, am usually wrong. My wife says so. She also makes sure there’s never enough left for floats.

    Sounds like you need a wife that says you know what, I think we need anfib floats. Yes dear we do. It’s all John’s fault. He let me take her for a ride in daisy on floats.

    Got back from Maine yesterday as the sun got a bit lower, and thought I’d visit a couple friends on the other side of the river.

    Jake Mahoney is one of the newer generation pilots, addicted to the cub life, flying his J3 on floats and skis, and wheels only when he has too.
    He just picked up his Javron kit, so in short order will have another monster flying the region.

    As I got over there he was just coming out the play, and we had a beautiful ride around the lake.

    It is with great sadness I pass along the news that our good friend, long time aviator and incredible aircraft restorer and one of my mentors Ron Jones yesterday lost his long time battle with pulmonary fibrosis. Ron was a friend to all who flew vintage aircraft. His door was always open and most phone calls lasted 30 min or more. Always ready to help out, especially those of us who had to rub nickels together to keep it going. A master craftsman at any thing he did. 3 best long wing piper awards at Sentimental Journey, a lindy at Oshkosh with a Tripacer. A&P IA DAR.
    I owe a lot to Ron who was a helping friend for over 30 years. I bought my Pa11 from him 28 years ago and my ex18-0200 that I fly now.
    You've earned your rest my friend it's been a couple tough years.
    Blue skies and tailwinds my friend

    I was on Stillwater yesterday, water is high for this time of year. Only down about 3'. It's perfect right now for stopping in Beaver River, middle pond and beach by dam
