Taylorcraft Daze

Quite often on Friday the retired and semi-retired "movers and shakers" show up at the local coffee cafe for some "R & R." When most are in attendance, there are about 14 of us. There is usually a lively discussion on topics ranging from: World, State, and Local issues with many problems being solved. Both the coffee and camaraderie is great. The cafe staff is a great deal of fun as well. Who pays for coffee is a ritual determined by quessing two digits chosen by someone, like myself, within the serial numbers on a two dollar bill. The guesses get narrowed down fast by the high and low numbers called out. It is a good idea to decide how many rounds will be played before the contest begins. A few of the fellows even tolerate conversations regarding aviation. One is a part owner of a Cessna 182. One has owned aircraft projects. One took lessons years ago, but never completed the process for a private ticket. Several have flown with me in the Taylorcraft. And, I do believe that a few more may going flying in the Taylorcraft some fine day. I appreciate all who help with my mission to introduce people to the wonderful "Realm of Flight."
