When all the cussing and feather pulling on the geese was over and I’d taken the packaged carcasses to Renter, he and I got to talking airplanes.
It appears that Beechcraft has managed to sell some of its AT-6 aircraft to another nation. That was a boost to the company. I asked about the Brazilian deal and he told me the swap of airframes hadn’t gone through.
(that last was a reference to a deal brokered by the dra-mama soon after coming to office)
Anyhow, I now have some goose to BBQ some time between now and mid-summer.

I heard from Linda, Dear Diary. She’s having mixed luck with here vehicle and her tournaments. She’s lost one and won one in the past two weeks.
The front that is bringing so much cold to the South came through here about eight thirty p.m. the other day. It brought high winds, tearing limbs and dropped the temperature from sixty-five to five degrees in a matter of minutes, it is just now leveling off in the mid twenties.

A Burlington Northern Santa Fe train struck and killed a pedestrian in south Wichita early Tuesday morning, authorities said.
Wichita police told media on the scene the victim is an adult female and the incident appears to be a suicide.
The train’s crew called 911 at 3:21 a.m. to report striking a pedestrian at Harry and K-15, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. The woman’s body was found just north of the track on the west side of K-15. She was pronounced dead at 3:33 a.m.
Which has nothing to do with anything of mine, other than make me wonder if another way would have been much easier, to say little of less messy.
