A notice on my Facebook page this morning said Bayfield's main street would be paved today so that gave Pheebs and I a morning destination. Under a cold cloudy sky with a few flurries in the air, we headed into Bayfield to see what we could see.
A QUIET MORNING AT AYFIELD'S BEACH
Here is a video someone took of the paving process today...Paving Bayfield's Main Street
I CAN SEE A WEE STRIP OF PAVEMENT AT THE EXTREME LEFT LOOKS LIKE THE PAVEMENT INSPECTOR A SHORT DRIVE AROUND BAYFIELD NETTED A FEW PICTURES
|CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS ARE BEGINNING TO POP UP|
|LOOKS LIKE THE LANDSCAPING IS DONE AT BAYFIELD'S NEW BRIDGE AND I COULD SEE A NUMBER OF TREES PLANTED OVER THERE|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( After every flight, pilots fill out a form called a gripe sheet, which conveys to the mechanics what problems they encountered with the aircraft during the flight and what needs repair or correction. The mechanics read and correct the problem, and then respond in writing on the lower half of the form about what remedial action was taken, and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humor! Here are some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems as submitted by Qantas pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers.(P = the problem logged by the pilot.)
(S = the solution and action taken by the engineers.)
P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.
P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land is not installed on this aircraft.
P: Something loose in the cockpit.
S: Something tightened in the cockpit.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent.

S: Evidence removed.
P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.

To Al: I LOVE the " Runs on natural gas'' joke 🤪😂Delete
Nice trip. What is that lone pink flower at the last - a hydrangea? Geez. Yes. I used to tell the hummingbirds when I lived out in the boondocks that they would have to find a second job or I would. Lots of sugar. Only three feeders but once a day. I did enjoy the winter feedings for others...juncos always looked sweet somehow..Oddly enough, no blue jays. Odd. I did see them in town. Anyway, thanks, as usual.ReplyDelete
Not sure if it was a flower or leaf but it was its pinky color against the greenish yellow that caught my eye,Delete
