Went to look at a new plane in Springfield IL

Jeff (my boss) and I went out to Springfield IL to look at a new plane to add to our fleet. The plane came from the Tatta company in India and I gotta say, they don't take care of the interior of planes like we do over here. It was a wreck. The good thing is that they just spent 1 million dollars on an inspection that has the majority of the plane disassembled, inspected, and put back together.. Other than the asthetics of the interior, the plane is in excellent shape. If our client decides on this plane, we have given him info on a complete restoration of the interior which will include broadband internet and many many other upgrades from the planes I am flying now. I have my fingers crossed, because this thing is awesome.. It even has a heads up display like the military fighter huh! Here are a couple pics of the same type of plane, it's called a Falcon 2000.

Quick trip to Washington

I flew up to Washington for a few days to help Jim plant some trees in his yard and visit with some friends. It is always fun to head up there and get a quick dose of WA. After living down in the bay area for a while now, I'm definitely starting to feel much more at home here that up there. Now I just gotta figure out how to get everyone to move down my way. I had a lot of fun one night at Mom and Jeff's visiting with Jon, Brittany and the kids Delaney and Adelyn. It was funny, Mom kept looking at me and saying No! because I was getting the kids so wound up. At one point I was singing online karaoke kids songs with Delaney..She was a little nervous around me at first but quickly warmed up...Good times
