Thinning the Fleet

For some strange reason, the wife said I have too many airplanes....but I said she has too many dresses and things went downhill fast....I hope to recover sometime in the 21st Century...seriously, I am slowly thinning the fleet because I am letting more and more newbies fly my planes Planted a nice 'trainer' (World Model's Sport Wing 90) by letting a newbie get too low and of course dumb thumbs can put even the Doghouse into the ground...oh well, I keep working on new planes

Fixed up a Butterfly for the club trainer - now what a trainer that bird is....even newbies can avoid the ground with that one

This retired life isn't so bad....I get to fly 3-4 times a week, sleep in on other days and build as much as I want....now that the Garage is clean Well part of it anyway >g>.

Who would ever want to get rid of their airplanes?

Many of those boxes are for sale...my 'stash' is hid under the beds, in closets, etc. Those are mostly electric planes from a friend who asked me to sell his stuff while he is 'over there' for two years

I am semi retired but my wife still works and travels out of state often for her job.
My basement is FULL of planes.
When she comes home and finds me working on a plane in the workshop she will ask "Is that a new plane?"
Of course I say no, it's an old one.
(they pretty much all look alike to her)
She will then ask the dog if the UPS man was here while she was gone. She also threatens to count all the planes!
I pray she doesn't count them and the dog keeps his mouth shut.

Haw! You break me up Show366drive....

Great paraphrasing of the reality most every one of us lives with.

Now someone please explain WHY I'm returning from winter in Fla. with a clothes rack full of her new stuff and ZERO airplanes?
Yeah, I'm a wuss too....saving up for a new EF 91 in. Extra. Hope springs eternal!!
Thanks for the great read!
