Cliff and I had our goodbyes at Air Museum.

A nice Sunset today
I was up early and started shredding more unwanted papers. Last night was dinner with friends and our goodbyes for the season. I took a nap after getting the suitcases out for packing. I awoke to Kathy moving around the room and was awake and dressed when my friend Cliff called to say he would pick me up for an afternoon at the air museum. I started shoveling the driveway as we got three inches of heavy snow this morning. It was 6 degrees when I was shredding and 23 degrees when I was shoveling the driveway. It is 21 degrees at midnight as I type this.
Fairchild 19 will fly again. I never noticed the BD-5 hanging from the ceiling

 Cliff took off work and took me to lunch and then to the museum. It made for a fun day and he enjoyed skipping work also. It was also a goodbye for the season event with him. I will see him again next summer if all goes well for both of us.

 After he dropped me off at home, I finished shoveling the driveway. I then did the Commissary run and picked up mail and filled the van with Gas and bought a few things at Costco we wanted.

 All vehicles except the old AWD van we are driving are parked for the Winter and have their batteries on trickle charge. I felt the 'oh shit we are leaving' feeling I get before we leave each year tonight. Most chores are done and it should go easy. I have old departure lists and will make a new one from them, just to make sure nothing was forgotten.
