Let me paint a picture for you. Imagine two kids, one 4 and one 6. Can you see them running? Yelling? Just being kids? Now imagine that they both come down with punemonia at almost the same time. Imagine one of them has just had ear tube surgery and his adenoids out. Now keep the young folks home for two weeks straight. Add in multiple trips to the doctor, hospital visits for xrays. What do you get when you add all of that up? INSANITY! The kids are going stir crazy, we are going crazy as well. Heck, even the cat and dogs don't seem too happy about it.
What does all this have to with RC? Well yesterday we got an email from a few of the RCGroups reviewers. Those are the group of guys that do all those reviews every month for RCGroups.com. The email basically said, "we know you guys have had a rough two weeks and we would like to do something." Tonight the doorbell rang and there was a pizza man with 4 hot (and literally steaming) pizzas. It was not a moment too soon. The kids didn't sleep most of the prior night and we were all about to loose it. I type this with our bellies full, no plates in the sink, the kids tucked away in their beds and the cat is sleeping soundly on one of the empty pizza boxes. I have said it before and I'll say it again, this hobby is about flying but it is as much, if not more so, about the people. A big thanks to Napo, Jon, Jeff and Ronnie. You guys ROCK!
