Well, it's xero degree wind chill, I have 2 more kits in Laser status, and I'm 4 years behind "schedule" After obtaining Missy, I was a tad concerned, as she managed to chew my dihedral braces bag for my (2) Chrysalii 1.5's, but other than that, she would chase the cats around the location of my buildboard from last January! I guess she figured it was part of the furniture, and when she plays "keepaway" from dad, she finds there is no more clear route to escape my grasp! Now that i've heard lots of guys mention I can get a handlaunch built in a weekend, I'm challenging myself to the task! We will have 3 more visits to VAMC next week, so I guess the best way to track is to ignore =somehow- Ace Combat Infinity! I don't mind mentioning doing build logs is a very time consuming item, so I'll just go with "chapter" status, and catch up on lots of the new F3 RES stories coming along now! my first step prep is awaiting glue, so time to "getterdunn"

Let me rewind the 'history' a couple weeks, so an understanding of accumulative stresses can be accounted for a bad day.
As I got a dual print finished for a pal of mine, ( story here)

I mounted Blue and White filaments for a dual extrusion of the model. I then saw a notification for a 'real' printing job via a print site. and getting that underway, I had 2 fails, as I was at the bottom of the filament roll. The site owner told me I had to 'go into town' to replace the filament, as there wasn't anyone else to do the print. during the process, I had one of the worse drives ever, and I found both extruders were ( hopefully just clogged) goofed up. I cancelled my 9$ bill and got some sleep after being awake for 42 some hours. ( my wknd).

During the next week, I was trying to sort which bird would come along to a dual club event, and all exited that I finally got to renewing my AMA membership, started to look into the new 2.4 radio equipments I had attained. I also learned that a particular aircraft would be arriving about a day before the contest. Receiving the Airplane that had taken 19 program builds, 6 crashes and other hassles to get as far as I am, I went to work for my 'Monday' Waking up after 5 hrs of sleep, I tried to sort out the RX equipment in as quick a period of time as my schedule would allow-I had 5 hrs, of which one hr was spent rereading instructions and realizing I was trying to bind the...Continue Reading

After some serious inspections, I find why I had such a 'tilted' look on life!
I have found that there's a speeds/feeds thing goin' on, just like machinin' but 'backwards. I do believe i'm moving forward now, and I found the secret to threads- real ones- not the phony 'looks like a thread' scenario. also copy pasting sends parts to an eternal 'out of view' loacation
serious projects coming now! I'm "in the air" with a twin Canard, am working out the details forthe micro servo plate/prop-motor mounts, and maybe a fuselage for the "Bug"

With the Sailboat shown in the preceding post, Which was purchased at Kremer's Toy and Hobby in Albertville Minn. 55301, And stopping my " so much to do, so little time mode" I realized I needed some specific glass cloths to do my new Canard activations mount, which will be tested on the twin propelated 'Skittereater'. Upon returning from getting the initial paperwerks done for a new job, I had recieved a phone call for said cloths. Then of course, upon during all these ducks getting in a row, students for flight training getting ready for first flights, ( usually without human interruptions) Learning how active Kremer's is involved with supporting the youth of Minnesota and RC Groups mentions (and adds for) the UMX Radian,
we shall return next week with camera in hand, to see where one of the UMX's will reside! As per our conversation today, communications and product listings are growing, and my next special will be a 'spray can' of Butyrates for various finishings! Stay tuned folks! this is just the beginning of a real rich lifestyle! (who needs bucks when you have people like Kremer's Toy and Hobby! ( some toys are even for the "over 21" age group!

So after a long haul with where to 'hang my hat', we found, mostly circumstantially, Buffalo, MN. An extremely kool town, and the best living conditions we've had in many, many years. After a tour in the desert, ( yep, even in the winter there is desert), the wife is overwhelmed @ how peaceful all life style is, and how close the important parts of town are for her ( an electric "go cart" and I'm getting a bang out of the location- lots of youngsters which Lady has introduced me to, of which have no allergies to the studies of Scientifics of Fluid Dynamicals! The most friendly people I have met anywhere! Lots of smiles in this towne! It took Little Bit (of crime) a tad of time to come out from under the new bed ( provided by Love Inc., and Lady is no longer on Hyper vigilant status. And now, the 25 cent tour!...Continue Reading

So this morning wife wakes me up with infos of our Vet being able to see Lady "right away"- 20 minutes from zero point awakening
Now when we do get her there, she crawled out of the car, minimally using the right foot, and manages to pee, and commences a line for the 2nd time to the front door- amazing how animals know whhen they are gonna get great help!
It was gonna get crowded, so I go outside for a smoke, and when I got back in,
Tanya and Heather and a wad of Lady fur were added to the room. Mark- the main Vet, took a look at her walking abilities, and then X Rays were next- just some aeration from gassing at the wound. So bottom line is the Lyme's med is stopped, wound meds activated, along with application instructions, and now for some slightly interrupted life. Lady seems to be doing OK with the 'hat' and I now get some time to put true life back in order!
Julie did real well in choosing Maryland Ave Pet Hospital, Lady has really bonded quickly to all the staff there!- and interesting traffic to watch out the window, and daddy has plenty bucks to pay an extremely surprising reduced( from previous episodes) bill!

So in Between normal work/ and Crimson life, Lady had a go nowhere Sunday, didn't even wanna pee!
We take her to a new vet, the folks at Maryland Pet Hospital got quick test answers,as Lyme's Disease was the culprit- a tick was found 4 weekends ago from the folks who ferminated her for summer and fast acting antibiotics, as when I got home from a short Monday, she was interested in taking daddy for his walk. A slow, 2 hour walk, but she also showed interest in the ball player's hotdogs this is a good thing! and upon returning home, she scarfed on Saturday's T bone.
Tuesday, she back to talking, picking on 'lil'Bit, and walked dad @ full trot. I finish out a stressing week, and looked forward to 'the routine, plus linking the controls for the Crimson.
Friday evening arrives, and we're returning from the 2nd walk- about 2200, when we see a couple puppies @ the apartment 'puppy park' . We were told by a woman that the puppies didn't like other dogs, we were about 25 feet away from the gate when this brindle pit bull literally crashed through the gate to chew on Lady.
First bite was the head, 2nd series was her right leg, and me, trying to pry these 2 apart. Needless to say, most of the neighborhood got involved, and the Police did an excellent job of getting all the data. after a Pepsi and nreve collection, I head on in to Regions' Hospital for a rabies shot.( according to the 'husband':mad
who was scared off from approaching my apt building when the Police arrived,asked...Continue Reading

here's a quicky- the Sir regis- Sig Riser of 100" is being planned for 'normal' configuration. yes, I plan for flaps, not so much as normal flaps, but to reflex the wing to get some scoot on!
no more talk- viewing time!
And some time later, along with Crimson moving forward some, we now have-----
