My wife and I are moving from our tiny town of Elwood,NE back 'home' (she grew up here, i'm from OKC) to Tulsa,OK.  It's a great town, we were there all last summer. Really excited.

In addition, it feels as though I am finally getting my shit together.  I am 99.999 % certain I will be accepted into an Aviation Maintenance Technician program at a local technical school.  I took the entrance math and reading comprehension exam yesterday and scored 100%.   If I am successful and find a job in the field my income will more than triple. The course is geared towards working adults (screw-ups like myself), and is 70% hands on and only about 30 of your more 'traditional' class work and lectures so I feel I stand a better chance of being successful than I did at University.

We'll see, it should be much less stressful financially also.  I am applying for a Pell Grant and even if I am denied the Pell grant the course is well within reach.

My wife laughed at me because I am already trying to find a sweet pair of cover-alls.

Anyhow, I am excited!

Well done Robbie, that's great news.

You're a real high-flier!

Congrats on the great news, fellahs! what the world needs is more folks focused on the good in their lives as opposed to the bad.

I found a person on CL selling a Honda Spree for dirt cheap, if I get it, I can save quite a bit commuting to school and to my special ladies!

Congratulations Robbie!  I'd fly in any plane you've tinkered on.

My wife and I are starting to get moved into our first 'all our own' house.  With renovations on the condo to put it up for rent, and renos on the house to move in, I haven't been able to contribute much here, but that will hopefully change in not too terribly long.  I've got newfound respect for Zissou in the ROYxCone days.  After far too long, we've got shop space, craft space, library space, and garden space.  Wahoo!  Oh yeah, and guest room space if some of you old-timers want to stop over in the NW.

^ Wooooooo!

Man, this is a great thread. I feel all warm and fuzzy.


It rained really hard today (for LA) and made me remember how glad I am to be here rather than still in Kampala, where profoundly shitty infrastructure meant the seasonal rains regularly flooded the streets to the point of unusable and chaos ensued.
