Julio is getting more sophisticated in his quest to keep Chuck out of the parts room. I wonder how many Cessna parts Chuck has already “modified” to fit on his Corsair. We might never know …

I kinda wish I had a deer cam in my “parts room” as well. Our storage unit where we (used to) keep the bulk of the Chicken Wings books got burglarized the other day. They took 2 boxes of books, which for us are easily replaced. But they also took all my toy prototypes and some rare toys I had from back when I was in the toy business over 20 years ago, together with designs my brother and I worked on in the past. The material value might be minimal but the sentimental value was very high. And they took my “Hot Wheels” collection which were all semi-rare German cars from the 1990’s until 2000’s! Again, very high in sentimental value and pretty much impossible to replace. Only for the old ink printer they took the joke is on them because it was a piece of crap. Oh! And they took one old timed out tail rotor blade I had that came of my dear girl “Panaca Jane”. Maybe that will stick out enough in some tweaker’s house to make the cops remember my police report. Good luck selling that, but I would have wanted to hang on to it.

I am starting to understand now how Julio must feel like pretty much every day …
