    Too windy, so my instructor cancelled. Ruins the whole day.

    Gary, isn't it awful! We got about 8 inches of snow today, so I am bummed, too.

    Hang in there, nice weather's coming.

    And here I set in 70 degree sun shine weather enjoying the flowers all in bloom.

    I'd go flying but Barb has a honey do list (spring time stuff)

    Our back yard today.

    When will the Midwest winter break? Not until California washes away and the Pacific NW burns. Sigh.

    Just got done with some multi engine dual. Had to quit because the student's Janitrol heater overtemped.....

    This was Denver earlier today... Notice the impressive wind shift! We got to sit in line for 40minutes waiting to get out of there this morning, number 24 for takeoff. Rather bumpy ride, too.

    As Tom noted, clear and a million here in the Pacific Northwest today (this is March, isn't it???). However, my wife got home from the hospital yesterday after having her shoulder worked on Tuesday night, so I'm home with a honey do list, too. Maybe tomorrow afternoon (after the list of things that need to be done then)?

    Ghery~ How did the repair surgery to your wife's shoulder go? Hope all is well, as things like that can be a real bummer. Please wish her well from all of us here on the board!

    Weather excellent here in Spokaloo also. Began a month of graveyard shifts last night, so slept through the nice but windy day here. Maybe next Mon - Wed will still be nice while I'm off. Sure going to be a bummer of a fire season though. Drove over Snoqualmie Pass last weekend, and it looked like late April, early May... bare and brown. Only had to shovel the sidewalk and driveway twice all winter. Water is going to be in such short supply here, I think I'll start transitioning to beer ;)

    Gary, I feel your pain. Similar winds cancelled my second acro lesson in the Citabria. Outlaws in town next week, so no lesson then, either. I guess two weeks from now.:confused:

    Thanks. I'll pass on the good wishes.

    I haven't had a chance to talk to her doctor. I was out of town all week on business (heck of a time to be gone), but the 'kids' (24 and 28) were around to help out. The word I get is that she will be off work for another month healing up, then physical therapy, etc. Probably 2 years before she has full range of motion again. In addition to adding hardware to put the shoulder joint back together he manipulated the pieces of the shoulder blade to get them into better alignment so that they can grow back together. I hear he commented that it was a difficult operation. I'm just glad I don't work his hours. He started on her about 5:30 PM. This was after replacing a hip joint in one patient and performing another operation before getting to Marilyn. Yikes!

    A week ago Thursday we were in her surgeon's office for x-rays and to schedule the surgery. Everyone kept stopping by to look at the CAT scan pictures. Then, on Tuesday while she was waiting to go into surgery the head of the operating area dropped by to tell her that everyone was commenting on the CAT scan. Nobody had ever seen someone so thoroughly wreck a shoulder blade and everyone had to take a look. No sense doing something half way, I guess.

    Now she gets to tell us where to put flowers in the garden. Normally she'd be out digging, but I guess I get the duty. Plants are her thing, not mine. Guess that has to do with her having the horticulture degree from WSU, while I have the engineering degree... ;)

    Glad it went OK Ghery. This particular operation is usually an awfully bloody procedure. Whew.
