Crazy day...

Bushed, Ash Wednesday, Valentine's Day, crazy long day...
Dozer, granddaughter's  husband's Lab
Dozer came and got me this morning to let me know Willie was down in the irrigation pipe shed barking his head off at some critter or other.  Went and dug through the pipe stacks to get Willie, so I could take him with me on a little road trip.
 Drove up to RB to do some banking for the estate. Took a friend to lunch at the airport and saw JB and a buddy come in for lunch.  Love JB's super cub...

and the other guy flew this '41 cub in...

Awesome.  If you want to see JB flying go here: https://youtu.be/fQtOliiP9Us

Drove back down to the flatlanders place just in time to watch granddaughter Lauren play her last high school basketball game. It was a good game and they won!  After the game we went to eat dinner in the sports bar at Granzella's.  We were ordering when an area near us was cleared.  As we were waiting for our dinners one of the grandkids looked over and said, "Damn, that's the governor". We are not fans, can you tell.  Sure enough there he and his wife were, and there off by his lonesome was security (who stuck out like a sore thumb amidst the locals in his suit, wires, and back to the wall).  Gov Moonbeam was wearing his "mingle with the common ranch folk" outfit of jeans, boots, shirt, jacket, and a ball cap.  I really wanted to go up to him and ask if the letters MAGA had accidentally fallen off his red ball cap.  But decided that using the excuse for smart ass remarks of my having sworn off cheeseburgers for lent was not going to keep me out of trouble, I let it go, for now...

  1. A cheeseburger sounds appealing right now.

  2. The planes look fun. Glad you got to go to the last game too! Glad they won! That makes the celebration that much more fun. But then Bozo shows up. You should have laid into him. Once in a lifetime chance! LOL(-: I actually met the former Govenator when he came to our airport.

    1. CiNdEe,
      If you haven't gone up in a Cub you should, it's more fun than I can tell you.
      It was telling that not one person in the whole place came up to him to greet him or say hello...

  3. From what I saw of the possible choices most likely to get it next things aren't about to improve. CA should work to get some solid choices on the other side or... well, you know who the two are, one of which is most likely to come next.

    1. Rain Trueax,
      Calif has so lost it's way, and there is such a huge illegal voting base that change is going to very hard to come by.

  4. Good for you for minding your manners :) I very much dislike or governor as well, a turncoat who changed parties after the election. That should not be allowed. But if I were to meet him, I'd be polite because one that's how I was raised, and two we can't all agree and that's how the system works. Here's an idea! I'll trade our gov for yours, LOL! Since you and I have opposite political views most of the time, we'd probably both be happy :) I love that we're friends even though we're political opposites.

    1. Granny Sue,
      We are adults and can actually be open minded enough to listen to each other. Doesn't mean we have to agree, but intelligent discourse can be had.
      As I don't know much about your Gov I can't say whether he would be a plus for us. I do know enough about the Gov here that I would not wish him on you for a second.

      It was a good high scoring game, and the two teams were equally matched. Made it fun to watch.

  6. Well - you're certainly having more fun than moi. Glad you didn't attack the gov. Saved us all the time of bailing you out. A hearty "Good Job" to Lauren

  8. I laughed at that "mingle with the ranch folks outfit." They do that, don't they -- all politicians. It's one of the things that makes campaign season so much fun. Maybe the only thing, now that I think about it.

    You brought to mind that wonderful quotation that's been traced back to Alice Roosevelt Longworth: "If you can't say anything nice, come sit here by me."

    1. shoreacres,
      It is laughable when they come with these get ups on that someone has told them will make them fit in... not happening...
      What a saying... LOL!

  9. I'm sure glad I didn't see Moonbeam. I might have been arrested. So that Gun Control freak had his armed escort to protect his privileged ass huh.

    1. Woodsterman,
      I wish I hadn't... they were watching the Olympics on the big screen, and his wife was reading aloud, very loud, the closed captions. Hello can the man not even read.

      Thanks, she's such a great kid, I can hardly wait to see what she does down the road.
      Yeah, it was a near thing, the cheeseburger deprived can be unkind to people they don't care for to begin with...

  12. Love your Piper Cub pictures. I didn't have a Piper Cub, but did love flying my '46 Aeronca. I landing on every dirt strip or off airport site I could find here in the southwest desert. Enjoy your blog, Dave
