Nope. That was Wayne's Carden Edge. The one I won at the Sherman contest in 2010. Total loss when they cut the tree down.

Here's the ownership lineage. Typical Pine Bluff. Mike/Sherman Club > Me > Bill Lloyd > Tommy Lee > Wayne > Cottonwood.

I flew two or three rounds. I may need to petition Doug to go back to Basic class.

That's a shame - I always hate to see "an altercation" with a tree or ground!!

How are you doing?

Everything but my leg is good to go. Doc says swelling could take up to 6 months to go down. They don't make the long incision to get the vain anymore. they made a hole at the ankle, inside of the knee, and in the groin. Then they just p-u-l-l the sucker out. Carol (AKA. Nurse Ratched) still keeps tabs on me.

Yeah I know about recovery!! It took the incision for my hip replacement about year to finally heal. I still have a "deep gash" on my hip but at least I don't limp!

I did have an "experience" that Betsy and I still laugh about! There was this "Ratchet-type" nurse that normally wore reading glasses to start IVs and insert catheters that came in one night to change my catheter when I noticed she didn't have her glasses on! I made mention of that and she said "don't worry I don't need them to do JUST catheters!" Yeah, right! - I held my breath and couldn't not tense up to save my life!!

I hope you don't have any more trouble with that leg! Are you taking a blood thinner just in case? But the BIG question is "are you still able to fly?

I flew Sunday and it was great to get out. Ramp door on the trailer makes load and unloading a breeze. Plus I got to see the infamous Bill & Bill (our two top pilots) fly. Always a treat. Too bad Frank99 has been MIA for a couple of months. He would have enjoyed it.
