Your right there Bill, I remember him bringing McDonald’s breakfasts to the field and eating them cold about 10:00. He told me, “I can’t eat early in the morning, but by 10:00 I could eat the a** out of a cow!” Only Joe.
I was going through some stuff in the shop the other day and found a piece of board he sent me. He was all excited because he’d finally built a wing jig and he sent me a sample of the wood so I could see it. I also have a stack of his homemade post cards, you know, pictures glued to a piece of cereal box.
I sure miss him, his passing sort of took the wind out of my sails for a while, we flew together allot before he moved south. I’m just now getting back to F/F building and planning on the Nats.
