Bring Beer

Yes, I know I haven't updated in a year and a half. I do miss you guys, and I think about you when things happen that you would appreciate. I'm in my office--the one with a desk, not the good one with wings--late tonight, because maintenance is, and they have questions for me. I'm cleaning up old files. I found an outdated contact list for approved maintenance organizations. It's nicely formatted in three colours, I think colour-coded for the type of service. You probably all know Airparts of Lockhaven--didn't I get a fuel gauge from there once when the needle fell off the old one? There's a fuel cells place, and lots of avionics shops, and an upholstery specialist. The contact name for the custom upholsterer is printed as "Walter the Grouch," and there's a handwritten notation next to it. "Bring Beer."

Beer, the universal aviation currency.

Yes, good to hear from you. Don't wait another year and a half for an update. Hope all goes well.

I was hoping that you hadn't gone west or anything - please post again sooner than later.

So good to see you on the blog feed again. I miss your tales of flying above the prairies. Come back and tell us some good stories.

A couple of weeks ago I finished a mystery by a Canadian writer set in "The North" --
it featured airplanes and snowmobiles and dog teams, and I thought of you and wondered what you were up to. I'd love to hear more from you, though I do understand: I blogged faithfully for about ten years, two posts a month, and earlier this year, I stopped because I just couldn't do it any more. But you're a real writer! Have you published a book yet?

Aah Beer, the universal alternative-currency.
