Everyone,
We had a break in the weather today but the back yard is still pretty wet due to rain and snow, but over the septic field was fine so I charged up a couple of batteries for the eSkywriter. My lovely bride launched me for a couple of flights to get my March 2017 flights in. For those that may not remember, the eSkywriter is an airplane designed by Minnesota Modeler that Frank Carlisle gave me to "develop" for him using a Brodak 1/2a electric package. I am sure that the video is still out there on YouTube of us flying while Frank filmed.

It has been a year since Frank has passed away and I did not think about it until I was flying that I was flying an airplane that he gave me on the anniversary of his passing. Perhaps he put in a good word for the weather so I could get out there to keep the string of consecutive months going for having put in a flight. Thank you Frank.

John
