Hello all

Talked to Janelle today, Bill is doing really well. He’s already asking for his laptop so I wouldn’t be suppressed if we don’t hear from him soon.
We all miss you Bill so rest up and check in when you can.

Just visited Bill at the hospital. After what he has been through he is looking good. (Bill don't get the big head). However it is the first time I have seen him at a loss for words. He is doing great. Had a good dinner while I was there. He expects to get out on Monday.

Bill,

I just found all this about your heart problems.
Needless to say - I am praying for you too.
I hope you will look to The Lord - and the reason for this season - during this time of the year.

God Bless All of You,
youngun (actually an old one )

Bill,

Good Luck healing enough and passing all the test so you can get out of there. You can't really start getting well till you get home. Keep the medical staff walking a strait line while your there.

Hello Bill

Hope your feeling better I have some good news for you and every body. I was able to get the Waco back together and fly her this week end. Had three flight and two out of three good landings the last one was kind of bouncy.
I may have her a bit nose heavy is there some sort of test to tell if it is nose heavy? Some one at the field said flying inverted you should have to use just a small amount of down elevator to keep level flight but I don’t know if that’s correct of not. I had to use quite a bit of up elevator to keep level flight but once I got her trimmed out she flew good.
I think that a Waco’s just one of those planes that draws a crowd had a lot of complements. Can’t what to get my hands on Bill’s 27% Waco
