0630 was my appointment time today, at St Vincent's hospital for another endoscopy and a search for what ails the innards. Result? Totally clean bill of health! It's as if nothing was there, so now I can carry on with the mission without renewing my prescription of purple pills. A great relief.
A big lesson is to ease back on too much of anything. Food, beer, wine, etc. I will take this as a big wake up call to maintaining health. So now I have another chance to mess up! Not.
There was a phone call earlier, and I was asked by my friend Bob to come by and help get an airplane back in the air on Monday morning. There will be about four other folks and maybe a couple Navy Jax Sailors helping to get that TBM-3 Avenger turned up and ready to fly. Of course, I am glad to help! We will have to pull the propellor around a number of times to get oil pumped into the jugs (cylinders) of the Radial Engine and maybe top up the fluid levels. I have never been this close to a Warbird, so there will be pictures and a description. After we perform the Turn-Around checks, the Avenger will fly to New Smyrna Airport for it's two year stay at a Museum.
I told you things were going to improve.
Have a nice evening1
