I'm going to a "GenFam" (general familiarization) course for an airplane I'll be dealing with. It's a three week course and it goes over the aircraft systems and some troubleshooting procedures. It's mostly alphabet soup.

Do you get any time off to get back to Texas, or after you're settled will their be a big move in the future? We gotta keep track of our nomad wrench bender!!

A friend and I used to love to go "adventuring" We'd say, let's go places and eat things! I think you'd have been a great travelling buddy, Wrench!

Calli, I'm all FOR going places and eating things!

Just a little while ago I dropped the missus off at her workplace and then I stopped off at a new joint for a beignet. It's the right thing to do!

Minneapolis has a lot of parks. And lakes. Yesterday I drove around Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet, both near my hovel.

This is at a rose garden near Lake Harriet.



Where I entered the rose garden.



In the rose garden.



Had a burger and a beer here last week.



This is an old streetcar built in 1908, "The Ol' 1300". It runs on 600 volts.
I paid two bucks and went for a ride on it up to Lake Calhoun from Lake Harriet. They gave a little talk and explained its history.

Love the fountain at the rose garden. Actually just the pool portion would suit me right now...so darned hot.

Wouldn't mind taking a ride on that old streetcar. Looks like the ones around here back at the start of the 20th century, long, long gone
