It was good to hear from him and hear about the old gang. They are still complaining about pay and work conditions, same as when I worked there. He wanted to know what I did to occupy my time, after which he said I was not living the same life as the other retired pilots he knew. I retired early after my wife retired early also. He wished me well and says call him in Spring for a ride in his Super Cub.
I may not live long enough to enjoy Winter after all the free meals provided for vets and my food choices there. Thanks, Applebees. Thanks, Texas Roadhouse. Thanks, Golden Corral. It was very nice that they provided good meals and made their times different at least for gluttons like me.

Near zero at night and teens in afternoon. The streets are icy and slick. It feels like Winter now. We have six more days of it.
Today we had the first monkey wrench thrown into our vacation plans. La Quinta cancelled our Miami reservations before and after our flight to South America. Hurricane damage caused then to close and rebuild. So we spent the day setting up new reservations with car storage. That was stress we didn't need. We are spending a lot more but basically have same reservations at Holiday Inn.
Kinda odd that I do not have a burning desire to leave for the Winter this year. I was even looking at new snow blowers at Home Depot! Perhaps 6 tropical Winters can cure Winter burnout.
