40 years ago, M.A.S.H premiered on CBS. Yes. 40. Years.
What to do, what to do. We have friends and neighbors who are not happy with each other. I have heard rumors and third/fourth party statements but that’s all. I do not know what went down and I will not guess. It’s not so much that I don’t want to know as much as it’s none of my business. When friends are involved there can be no “side” to take. To my friends, I will offer any assistance if I think it will lead to a resolution. I need everyone to take a deep breath and a couple of steps back. I hear some hurtful things said by all and that pains me. I know some things can’t be taken back and that is why I asked the editor to shut down comments for a while. Please, friends work this out one way or the other. It sounds like a very personal issue that needs to be settled by the parties involved and the last thing this fire needs is some disconnected knothead to say something stupid one way or the other. Please, I’m begging you.
The Third annual BLOCK PARTY is ON!! If you missed it it’s a simple gathering with our Lazy Bend neighbors. It will be this Friday from 6 to 9. JT has threatened to bring out his guitar just for us. I’ll bring a table and some snacks, PDuffey will do the same. Bring a chair and some finger foods to share and lets enjoy a beautiful fall evening and meet somebody new!!
Orbiter Endeavour’s fly over has been delayed until tomorrow. This update from neighbor Steve:
Endeavour and the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft are ready to go, but the weather is not. The cold front has slowed and now is not expected to clear Houston in time for a safe arrival Monday at Ellington.
The Ferry Flight Readiness Review was followed by a separate more-detailed weather discussion and the decision was made to delay start of the Ferry at least one day and brief weather again at 10 am Central (11 EDT) Tuesday.
So for safety of the vehicle in transit, the plan now shifts one day with a Houston/Ellington stopover including one night now with departure for California near sunrise Wednesday.
Under this new schedule, the SCA will depart Tuesday for Ellington; Wednesday for Edwards/Dryden with a fueling stop at El Paso’s Biggs AAF.
Movie Night is proceeding albeit slowly. I have completed the Exhibition Request and sent it back to our account rep. As soon as we get the licensing in place we’ll pick a date.
I have completed the last of the Federal tax forms for the club to get us squared away with our Tax ID.

Ballunar Fest is next weekend! I’m stoked.
A very tired nurse walks into a bank,
totally exhausted after an 18-hour shift. Preparing to write a check, she
pulls a rectal thermometer out of her purse and tries to write with it. When
she realizes her mistake, she looks at the flabbergasted teller, and without
missing a beat, she says:
"Well, that's great....that's just
great..........some asshole's got my pen!!"
