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.

Oh yeah! OMG! Thanks Nick, good luck! Down to the home made mustard and pickles, YES! #burger #cheeseburgerpurity @friscosjoke ❤️🔥🤺 Monochrome #archiepoodle on a long Saturday Colder and windier and wetter than it looks. Feels like January. In Maine. Or the new March in Maine. #handknit @tylereldridgeart was tired and is that @ksimpsondesign about to get on the wrong train? #mecagdny18 @mecagd Disappointed to leave a day early to beat another storm. ❄️ Northeast weather in March😳We’ll catch Pratt and Dean @accooney99 next time!
