Hi Tim,

 

The view from the FBO really improved with your fleet parked on the grass!

In your displayed photos, is that your "new" Cub with the NC reg?

All is well over here: the PA18s wings are being "silver doped"right now and the Stearman is ready to get it's tail feathers fitted.

I'll add some picutres soon.
