Saturday Has Arrived And We Are Ready!

I can’t believe I got fired from the calendar factory. All I did was take a day off.

First things first…I installed my new compressor drain extension on the bottom of the air compressor! (You need to drain the compressor tank every few days to keep the water from accumulating) I was getting tired having to get on my knees and search for the drain valve. Now it is easy…lean down the flip the valve covering the outlet with a shop cloth to absorb the water!

No more reaching…yeah!

We worked around the house this morning. We are on our way in terms of the new puzzle but we are starting to hate the color grey! Sue read while I worked in the shop re-organizing the drawers and putting together like and/or job related tools!

We had a loose connection in a lamp last week and it was sooooooo nice to go to the shop and reach for the exact tools I needed to do the repair. Made the job go so very easy!

While in the shop I listened to my conservative radio station and they had some good ones this morning! It’s hard for me to grasp how the liberal democrats can keep up their attack on Trump when they look like such fools. We knew obama was an idiot but we waited until he and his socialist failures could be voted out. Perhaps we should have attacked him…I, for one, can hardly wait to see his hidden documents (college transcripts, etc) to see what an abject looser he really was!

Then we have we people who weaseled their way into Congress…the squad… should be named the looney brigade! Oh well..they have been found out and will be gone in the next election.

Sue came out and she got the “grand tour” of the shop. In retrospect, I must have been like a little kid showing off the new toy. She patiently looked into each drawer with me. She did have some good suggestions and I took her up on those!

Ready to fix!
Locked Roll-arounds
Organized and ready to go!

We did lunch and I devoured the rest of the Chili Chicken Tikka… my mouth will never be the same. Come on ice cream!

After lunch I listened to Leo Laport, the Computer Guy on KFI, while I continued organizing the shop. My old Imac is ten years old and I am going to replace it with the new Mac desk-top so the old iMac is now in the shop. The air reel is now is use and works well!

Love those tools and air makes it easier!

In the afternoon when it was so hot, we watched TV and waited for the clock to hit 5:00 PM…time to get ready to go to the Elks! We got there about 6:00 PM and stayed until a little past 9:00 PM. Sue met up with one her her old bosses, Thad Sanford who was a VP of Engineering when he retired. He and Bob Murshack, a friend from Starlighters, apparently knew each other! We were pleasantly surprised to see him, after all these years. Sue was the Software Director for the ill-fated National Aerospace Plane (NASP). Sue left NASP in 1986 to come work on the Space Station proposal for Rockwell but she and Thad stayed in contact over the years.

Artists concept of the X-30 aerospace plane flying through Earth’s atmosphere on its way to low-Earth orbit. the experimental concept is part of the National Aero-Space Plane Program. The X-30 is planned to demonstrate the technology for airbreathing space launch and hypersonic cruise vehicles.

Did You Know?  The Rockwell X-30 was an advanced technology demonstrator project for the National Aero-Space Plane (NASP), part of a United States project to create a single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO) spacecraft and passenger spaceliner.  It was cancelled in the early 1990s before a prototype was completed, although much development work in advanced materials and aerospace design was completed. While a goal of a future NASP was a passenger liner capable of two-hour flights from Washington to Tokyo, the X-30 was planned for a crew of two and oriented towards testing.

Home and tookies wee the next thing in order for today… We crashed a little before midnight!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
