Default 8 Therapy

The 8 is the only model I've flown of the RV's, but when does the fun stop or the smile go away?

I have cut my anti-crump meds way way back, I haven't fired anyone lately, even gave the axxhole neighbor some tomatoes

The grandkids come around more....my wife thinks I can take down the blue pill I lick once a quarter that's tapped on headboard

That gave me a good laugh....

Sounds like you have an extra big salt lick taped to the board!

The 8 is a delight to fly.

Mine is an ALUMINUM MISTRESS.

Thank you for the belly laugh! Excellent timing! And yes, I am always much more relaxed when I get out of my -8 after a little aviating, even if my landings suck.

The fun stops when I drive home from the airport in traffic.

The smile, well that's another thing entirely isn't it?

Well Stan,
Next week (July 12th) it will be 17 years since I first flew the Doll, and that RV Grin is still plastered on my face every time I push the throttle forward. I love my RV-8, and I plan to keep flying her, and grinning, until I'm on the wrong side of the grass!
