    The Monkey is back in action! Last night, he took me to "HOPS in the Hangar" at the Wings Over The Rockies Museum in Denver.

    Here he is:

    Learning to fly! Anyone know this cockpit?

    3. Delighted to finally find an airliner his size. Yeah, they're defunct.

    The Monkey is pretty subdued this morning after all the brewery samples and won't be doing anything for about a week. Take this time to look back at some of your Monkey Memories and enjoy!

    The Monkey is back in action! Back in the sky, where he belongs, soaring like a... uh, like a monkey??

    Anyway, I finally got The Monkey airborne for his first GA action since before Oshkosh. Here we are at 8,500msl over Colorado with some of the worst haze I've seen in our state. We're used to 30+ miles of visibility and this was like flying on a good day in New England! Here we are flying southwest and visibility was about five miles. (The little marks on the windshield are chips in this not-quite-new airplane.)

    Had a special copilot with me who wasn't just deadweight like The Monkey. We're all flying again on Monday, so hopefully the air clears from the northwestern forest fires and we have a more fun and photogenic flight.

    Reminder - if you're interested in being custodian for The Monkey, please PM me. I've got trips to Hood River, Oregon and Reno, Nevada coming up.

    Despite the remarkable lack of response to the latest adventures of The Monkey, he flew again this morning. It's still hazy as the East Coast in late summer, but without the brutal humidity. Today, 97F set a September record for Denver and I saw 100F on the car temp pulling out of the parking lot.

    How do we get more people following The Monkey and sharing The Monkey Love?
    We'll make it a contest! - Who can identify this airport and FBO from this picture?

    Pardon the lack of response. I have been following, just didn't say anything.

    Too bad the weather sucks up there. We've had one of the coolest summers in memory here in OK. I think we only broke 100 deg 2-3 days this year.

    @G-Man if he's back in Colorado, it's time for his date with me at the shooting range. LOL.

    Oh, The Monkey. The Monkey is a freakin' crybaby. He keeps whining "I wanna go back to nice places and fancy beers with Cajun Flyer."

    "I'd even go back to cheap booze, cheap livin', and cheap drugs (but plenty of them) with 6PC and EMan1200."

    All day and all night this is what I hear. Why? Why me? Why The Monkey?

    Well, I'll tell you. Work brought me to Reno, NV for an excellent conference. By unpredictable, surreal, and mind-blowing coincidence, our hotel was also the host for 3,000 participants in the Burning Man post-party.

    If you don't know Burning Man, check it out. And remember when it was about the playa, brother, and not the yuppies. Feel your human love, earthlings.

    The Monkey is more loved and more traumatized than ever. Here are pictures:
    image.jpeg
    The Monkey gets some love from Ping Ping, who said The Monkey (and me!) were her "most beautiful new friends" and gave both of us long and very close hugs. Very close.

    image.jpeg

    Everyone loves The Monkey! Including this crew, who were either coming down from Burning Man or re-enacting A Clockwork Orange. You decide.

    Next week, The Monkey and I return to Reno for the Reno Air Races. Who knows what adventures are ahead?

    We may have been one hiccup away from "G-man delayed in Reno waiting for movement."

    Whatever has happened with and to The Monkey in the past, now more than ever he needs purification: Every "Burner" who saw The Monkey put The Monkey in his/her mouth.

    Hep shots should be available from primary care physician or county health. All things considered a visit to county health would prolly be a real good idea....for both of you...

    We've been bathing in Purell. But not together. The Monkey gets very 'handsy' and he does have four of them, so it's not at all good.

    From now on this will be known as the "Burning Monkey Incident", named for both the festival and the sensation the Monkey feels when peeing. :)

    In order to atone for The Burning Monkey Incident (aka "It only hurts when I flee") I took The Monkey on an extended cultural trip. And when you hear "extended cultural trip," I know you think what I think - Alamogordo, New Mexico!

    Part of the trip included a memorial pilgrimage to see the gravesite of The Monkey's spiritual predecessor. (And a really cool museum!) Yes, Alamogordo hosts the New Mexico Museum of Space History, which includes the gravesite of noted simian explorer Ham the Astrochimp.

    Y'all take a moment to educate yourselves: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ham_(chimpanzee) I'll wait.

    Here is The Monkey in a rare moment of silent veneration for his forebearer.
    DSC_3723.JPG

    And it's also time to announce - it's time for The Monkey to move on! It's been here since Oshkosh and my lawn is dead, the neighbors' pets are traumatized, and it's starting to snow.

    Someone needs to step up and take custody of The Monkey. Soon. Really Soon. Like at the Copperstate Fly In in Mesa, Arizona, on October 27-28? Arizona POA denizens, I'm looking at you! Don't make me name names! Time to step up and do your patriotic duty and host The Monkey!
    Who wants him ? ? ?
