Hi Mom. Saw the moose again this morning. He was wandering down the street.
Ya know, the neat thing about living in the poorer neighborhood of town here is the grocery. See, this area of town is chock-full of immigrants from all over. And like immigrants of all times, there's times they miss a bit of home. So the corner grocery (yes, there actually is a corner grocery here! All 70's-supermarket like inside!) - has all sorts of stuff from Asia and other corners of the world. No fancy logos or store brands, just a photocopied ingredients/nutrition label slapped on the side and some occasionally hilarious "engrish" labels alongside the funny squiggles I can't understand.
Kinda neat - like a culinary tour of the world just next door.
Oh, and here's what I learned in work today:
1. Supercubs are painted with what basically amounts to nail polish. Lots and lots of nail polish. Which explains why the boss has large vats of acetone lying around. And why my nails turned to a sticky mess the last time I was cleaning out the ports of the ForSale plane.
2. Don't ignore the end of the white arc on your airspeed gauge. There's attachment points on your flaps that don't take too well to being dropped when you're going too fast. Then they break. And cost money to fix.
3. Always disconnect the cowl flaps and airbox before trying to take off the engine cowling. Ooops. :)
4. It's amazing how fast you can get the cabin of a Cessna emptied out and all the ports opened up for inspection. Not exactly complicated inside.
