Careful!
Friday the 13th

Way off any topic:

Don't fly under any ladders, or let a black cat walk in front of you. Don't even think of breaking a mirror either, or sticking a needle in your eye.

Certified nut...

Sorry to hear about your loss, those trees can really sneak up on you if you don't have a dedicated tree watcher with you

The heli was tangled high up in the tree. I had to go home and break out my 24' ladder. After I laid the ladder against the way too skimpy tree branch, got up 3/4 of the way up swaying in the wind, the heli decided to fall from the tree, landed on my 500 and cracked the canopy. Must be the Friday/13th thing.

Mr.Ev and Chefyang,

Sorry to both of ya for your mishaps. Ya, might think about marking out any Friday the 13th. and not fly.

Hey Chef,
What's your specialty, I love to cook too. But I'm sure I'm not in your league.

French/Asian confusion. Anybody can cook per Chef Gusteau. As long as you enjoy doing it!

Chef,
Thanks for the tip. I was in Thailand for some time and loved their foods.
Such an honor for a young man, Gusteau.

I think it's the 14th we have to really worry about, just cut the out of my face (mostly my nose) with an airplane prop and motor......

Mr.EV,

Holy Crap, that's two days in a row. Crashing yesterday and now this. Sorry about the prop in the face, that's gotta hurt. On the lucky side, you didn't get hit in the eye(s).

Dave

PS... This is post #13. YIKES!

Very good luck for my eyes though!

I flew out in my driveway yesterday and I was thinking, it is Friday the 13th, maybe I shouldn't. But I said "screw the superstition" and I flew anyway. The outcome.... nothing happened, it was a great flight, no accidents, no damage.
