My first wife hated flying. She even put my 1958 Bellanca Cruisemaster up for sale!
Needless to say, I have another wife now.
Marilyn wasn't a pilot then, heck she didn't even know there was such a thing!
Now she's a CFII and has been a president of the Airpark association a chairman of the local 99s chapter, also president of Big World Flight For Education. Whew! And I was the catalyst for all that.
I guess she's the prototype for the Energizer Bunny
Oh, and best of all, she drives rivets too! That IS important!!

I took Ann for her first airplane ride in 1975 in my Globe Swift. By 1985, she had her private ticket.
And as most of you know, she builds too.
She's also held every office in EAA Chapter 168 except for treasure at least once.

Default Builder Doll

Builder Doll, not only loves to fly, but she bucks rivets as well. In fact, she bucked nearly ever rivet in the standard slow build kit: "Beautiful Doll"

Talking about being lucky!

Default Fuzzy Picture, but......

My lovely bride and I on our way back from Ohio to CA.
She is always willing to go flying (if her schedule permits), and lend a hand during annual/condition inspection time.

Didn't have my camera with me, but there was a large gaggle of loyal Team RV ladies at the PDK airshow last weekend - all equipped with the RV Grin.

I enjoyed their company for a few moments and congratulated them all on their devotion to aviation.
