Good afternoon Phrogs! Hanging by the pool today watching the Dayton Airshow. Yesterday's show was cancelled due to a fatal crash of a wingwalker and her pilot. This was the second crash in 6 yrs. Hopefully everyone stays safe today.
I saw the crash on TV - looks like he lost control just before it went in - glad no spectators were injured/killed. And to think some people get ticked at the FAA because they impose certain safety standards at air shows, such as keeping spectators a certain distance away from the operating areas.
Well, DW and I had plans to boat today with DD and her BF. DW got all the food together, I pulled the boat out, washed her down, cranked her up....all good. Decided to check air pressure in tires, 1st one about 5lbs low, topped her off. Reached for the valve stem on second tire....BOOM valve stem exploded and there went the air! No big deal, I'll run up to the tire place and have another stem put in. NOT! Lug nuts rusted to the hub. Had to cut the hub off the rim. 7 hours later, after going to get a steel wheel cutter for my drill, I finally got them separated and cleaned up the yard. What a wasted day. At least it didn't happen rolling down the road!! Reaching for a beer now!
