Despite my continual ribbing, I'm glad your plane flew and flew well. I know you put a lot of time and energy into it...geek that you are.
And ouch on your dog - that sucks Ed, I'm so very sorry
I know you have kids, it's doubly hard on them. If you haven't heard of the rainbow bridge poem, you might want to google it for them. It really helped my kids last spring when our dog was hit by a car and didn't make it. I think our vet gave us a post card with it on it or something. Again, I'm really sorry, pets are members of the family too.
OK! I WAS SAPPY THERE. STOP STARING AT ME!!!!!
