What Was I Doing Last Week?

August 25, 2013

Before I begin detailing what I am working on this weekend, I thought I’d take a bit to talk about what its like coming back from a week on the road.  I get my coffee and enter the garage.

Plane looks like I remember it.

Looking closer I realize that last week Michelle came out to the garage and told me that in 10-minutes we were leaving to meet some friends for dinner.  I find evidence of that.  I am usually pretty neat and try to throw stuff away.

I even find parts laying around in places I don’t normally put parts.

I honestly dont remember putting these here.

After searching around I find something that catches my eye.  A gusset that I suddenly remember was the last thing I did before knocking off last week.

Oh yeah!

Oh yeah!

Once I see the gusset it dawns on me what I was doing and what comes next.
