hummm…

Ok, well at this rate I feel like I really should start a whole new Blog entitled The Sagas of BT.

Today [mid a.m.] he IM me and said he couldn’t find his logbook. Now, next to the plane itself, a pilot’s logbook is the last thing he wants to loose.

I can read the headlines [10 years from now], “UPS Pilot Looses Plane – Can’t Remember Where He Parked It!”

I went home, searched the house, the living room [that’s practically where BT lived] – I looked under the couch, pulled the cushions off, pulled out the bed — it’s a sleeper, under the entertainment center, the other chairs in the living room, searched BOTH his desks — YES, he has 2! Searched his room — that was an ordeal in itself. Searched the guest bedroom [his weights are in there so I just thought…] Anywho, no logbook. On my way back to work he TM me and says, “Look in my truck”

So, I turn around, go back to the house and search the truck. No logbook.

I TM back, “Do you want me to call Pan Pacific?” [where he took flight lessons] “Yes” he says. So, back to the office to get their number and I call them. They will look for it and call me back. I seriously didn’t expect to hear back from them. I figured if they had it they would have called by now, it’s been a week since he last flew.

Sure enough, in about 30 minutes they call back and have located the logbook – PRAISE THE LORD!!! I didn’t ask “how” or “where”, just said I’d be right over to get it.

So before I leave I IM BT to say I’ve found it and does he need it next day air or will 2 days be OK? He didn’t respond to his IM so I told him to call or TM me I was on the way to get the logbook and then to the PO.

I picked it up at Pan Pacific and headed to the PO. Still no word from BT as to how soon he had to have it. I hang out at the PO a few minutes, TM BT a couple of times, try to call him — no response. He doesn’t get a signal for his phone in the dorm room. Finally, he TM back — 2 days.

WHEW! Good thing because over night was $16+ I sent it priority for $4+

OK… that’s a wrap for this saga. Wonder what the next will be?

3 miles on the mill. Knee pain at the 1/2 mile mark– I trudged on…

Looking forward to Monday’s U.S. 10K, one of the best 10Ks of the year. Extreme hills, but at this point I relish the hills — BRING ‘EM ON! It’s the one time my knee doesn’t hurt. What a HOOT! I used to HATE the hills, now I’m saying, “bring ’em on!”

The U.S. 10K also has the best after party of ANY race I’ve been too, thanks largely in part to Publix — a HUGE sponsor. If you’ve been in a Publix store lately you’ve probably seen advertisement and applications for the race.

Talked to BT yesterday. He poked himself in the eye with the shower head. I TOLD YOU HE WAS TALL! No seriously, the shower heads up there are somewhat low. I remember thinking that one time when I was up there staying in the dorms– assuming the guys dorm showers are the same as the girls. AND I’M NOT EVEN TALL! He said he didn’t know what really tall people do — poked himself in the eye with the shower head… ha ha ha LOL! That’s a GOOD ONE BT!
