It's been a while, but yesterday I put on my "big girl pants" and went up in this with my DSO. (Remember, he built this!) Now this airplane is little. Cozy you might say. The engine is about the same size as the engine on his motorcycle. (Does the phrase "the difference between men and boys . . . come to mind?)
Even though small, there are quite a few instruments, gizmos and gadgets.
The fields are a wonderful patchwork from the air.
Our destination is that little clearing of land next to the Muskingum River - apply named Riverside Airport - in Zanesville, Ohio.
It is such a small world. After landing, a gentleman asked if we flew down from Lorain to which we replied "yes". (DSO was wearing a shirt that had Lorain on it.) He said that he was originally from Lorain and lived on King Ave. Wait a minute! I live on King Avenue, a street only 3 blocks long. Years ago when I was looking for a house in this area, I actually looked at the house he had owned. When he told me his name I realized that I knew his niece. That is just too much coincidence. What is it they say about only six degrees of separation?

Just a few pictures around the yard. Thankfully we have not gotten a frost, but it has not been far from it the last few nights.
|LOVE this iris|
