Default Grasshopper! What Can I say?

Just received my Pitts biplane from Tom. Shipped super fast, and packed better than anything I have ever recvd. Lots of paper padding, everyingthing in bubblewrap, labelled for even a dummy like me to understand. Just an all-around perfect experience.

What a top-notch guy!

Me being broke makes MY wife unhappy. That's two very bad things.

Now that I can relate to, lately.....LOL

I just got a call from a guy in my club, asking if I wanted to buy a foamie (he has one, and is ordering 5 more).....I explained my recent situation, buying a new plane from you, and how if I asked my wife what she thought of me buying another plane, she would just have to kill me. LOL He understood completely.

I think she's bluffing. Go ahead and buy it. It's your second step to being a well stocked RC Buddy.:<

You, sir, are laughing entirely too much after typing that. And on that note, I am off like a prom dress.

Catch you tomorrow!

Come on Kev. Just buy it. It is easier to ask for forgiveness later than to ask for permission before.

Hmmmmmm, someone or something would have to go to make room for the important things---planes. I would suggest a list ranking them in order, with planes low on the list.

Tinman, that is a really great suggestion. That would solve the problem of the dilemma of Kev making the list and it's ranking, with all the resulting turmoil.

I will also volunteer to step up to help a friend in need. You can send some of the planes to Brian and some to me, here in friendly Oklahoma and I will return them when you are ready. If they are still in existance, not crashed.

And don't get any bright ideas about sending me the mother-in-law instead.?? I already have one of those.

Just trying to be helpful.

Seems to me, you suggested that as an OK solution for me in order to set up a hobby shop for you guys.

Right on! Spilt them up between us. Don't send the Mother In Law. They don't fly to well.

Default Kudos to Grasshopper

Just through casual conversation I mentioned I lost my last edition of 'Model Aviation' magazine. Tom offered to send me his with no strings attached (I'm interested in doing a scratch build).

I accepted but will repay him at SEFF '08 (possibly with a walking taco or hot dog )

Thanks Tom!
