      Yes, I don't have to many from Cincy, but overall I have almost 600 pictures from over the last year that I have gotten around to yet!

      Hei Jim, I told Rob about your Sig problem. He suggested that you may need a stronger spring because of the pulse. Also try a high velocity ammo to see if that makes a difference.

      Enjoy your time at the range...it's been WAAAY too long since I've gone shooting.

      Please tell him 'thanks' for me. There is a guy that makes stainless slides to go with the 22 kit, as well as better recoil springs. I'll probably pick those up but I'm pretty sure the spring catching on the pin was the main problem. I am using high velocity ammo, too. I'm told I have to in order to get the slide to cycle on a semi-auto. Personally, I like using the 9mm slide better but ammo is too rare/pricey these days!

      I just don't have time to get to the range.

      Anyone else notice how odd it is that this went from guns to bedtime stories? Off topic must still be ON topic on the Scirocco forum after all!!!

      I would agree, and will get right on that.....

      So part of the reason I was not as prepped as intended for Cincy this year is that Brad & I were moving all of our hangar stuff into a couple of adjoining hangars. (Saves *lots* of time looking for tools!) My hangar will be doubling as the Scirocco storage / repair facility, so I've been trying to get that organized. So far:

      Now for the cats part. We had joined JediLynne & co for a late-nite ice cream at Sonic on Wednesday evening, and there was a skittish little mostly-starved cat begging for scraps. She turned out to be pretty friendly, and since it was quite obvious she didn't have a home....

      I hope she sticks around as she's been given the job of Hangar Security Officer. Now she just needs a name... I'm leaning towards Sonic / Sonicat.

      There's this guy with a pet gorilla and every day when he comes home from work he lets the gorilla out into his fenced in backyard. One day while the gorilla was in the backyard, the house phone rang, so the guy went inside to answer. After the 5 minute call, he returned to find that his gorilla was no longer in the yard. Panicked, he raced inside, grabbed the phone book and was pleased to find a company that specialized in retrieving lost gorillas. Ten minutes after placing his call, a van pulls up to the house. After a brief conversation, they both hop in the van and start cruising the neighborhood. It didn't take long to find the gorilla as a woman comes tearing out of her house screaming that a gorilla was up in a tree in her yard. Sure enough it was the guy's gorilla. The driver of the van goes to the back and opens the doors, after a big dog jumps out, the driver takes out a pair of handcuffs, a tall ladder and a shot gun. Curious, the gorilla's owner asks how this all works. "Well, I put the ladder up under the gorilla and shake the tree until your gorilla falls out. The dog races up and bites the gorilla in the crotch. When the gorilla reaches down to get the dog off, you slap the handcuffs on him and we have your gorilla back". "Seems like it would work" reply's the owner, duly impressed. "Just curious, what about the shot gun? How does that come into play?" "Well, sometimes I fall off the ladder first, and that's when you shoot the dog!"

      A guy is walking down the street on the outside of a tall wall. He can hear someone on the other side saying "14, 14, 14, 14..." He is wondering what is on the other side and keeps hearing the "14." He thinks to himself that maybe it's a mental institution and still hears the "14, 14." As we walks along he see a small hole in the wall and decides to take a peek. All of a sudden a finger pokes him and the eye and from the other side he hears "15, 15, 15."

      I like the jokes. MOAR JOKES!

      Man goes to visit his rabbi. Man: "Rabbi, I think my wife is trying to poison me." Rabbi: "How can that be, you have been married for 40 years. I tell you what, I will go visit her and see what I can find out". Man: "Thank you, I will be anxious to hear what you think." The next day the rabbi calls the man to meet again. Rabbi: "I spent 3 hours talking to your wife this morning." Man: "And?" Rabbi: "Take the poison."

      Last time I saw a fuselage that thin was on a P-51, so I'm offering "Mustang"...since you have a well established tradition of naming cats after aircraft. Plus we're all well aware that nobody messes with them, they mean business. She looks pretty manoeuverable too.

      I think God hates me.

      We took her royal highness (red wench) out for a spin on Monday, and it went pretty well. Still a little rough, definitely better than it had been. We even (sorta) cranked the stereo.

      When we got home, I parked her in her spot and shut her down. And forgot to take the face plate off the stereo......

      So when I went to drive her to work on Wednesday, the battery was dead. D'OH!!!!

      I like your thinking. Expect problems and be pleasantly surprised when something goes right.

      Oh it's dead. (when I say dead, I mean drained...it'll recharge)

      I didn't remember (until after) that the stupid face plate stays illuminated after you turn it off, and it always drained my battery. It had been so long since I'd had her out that I forgot....until it killed my battery once again.


      But compared to all the other stuff I've dealt with, a dead/drained battery is nothing!

      Got my high beams working. The relay died.
      Deal with it.

      I drove Glenn around a lot yesterday, and then drove him today. It's great to finally drive him around. It makes me happy
      I'm sure I had a funny signature, I just can't remember what it was!
