Flying Hours

Dad was a farmer and a pilot. Maybe these are connected; outside, horizontal and being surrounded by weather. He always had a private plane of some sort, they are listed in this log. He began his flight log and his training Feb 5, 1948 while he lived at the YMCA in Minneapolis, Minnesota, room 510.  The last entry is May 17, 2000 in the Glasair N237JH 180 he’d built. He went solo at 3:30pm for an hour and a half. In the remark section he wrote: ‘Verios’. His stroke took away his speech and spelling, but not his flying. Such a beautiful signature.

#GoT Pretty proud of my mending, no, --reconstruction-- of my Patagonia shorts circa 1980 that @cornfrickindog now wears. She felt they were becoming a little too fragile. She inherited them this summer (basement clean out), they were barely holding together. My Sears Kenmore still rocks a zig-zag, all the while it was memory lane through the 80's, into the 90's with those shorts. Now they're kind of like a suggestion of canvas shapes sewn onto denim chunks that make up the 'real' shorts. @patagonia #searskenmore #sewing #mending #heirlooms Taking a peek at the summer of love
