Busy week

Did two sets of Federal taxes, Davids last estate and my own personal taxes. I expect a nice refund.

I will have to scatter Dave's ashes in the garden at Glimmerglas house this spring. Let me know if you are interested in attending and what dates are good. I meant to do it last Memorial Day, but certain important people were not available that weekend.

Sunday I lead a build session of a peanut scale Sonda I. I designed the kit for our club to use. The Sonda I is a Brazilian rocket that looks cool and goes together relatively easily. The kit has separate parts for each color so that the painting is fairly straight forward. The models went together quickly and a good time was had by all.

I ordered new bifocal reading/computer glasses. I had some pretty precise ideas of what I wanted and the glasses lady seemed to appreciate my planning. All my figuring of diopters (1/focal length in meters) went for naught because she measured things in inches and converted anyway. I should get the new specs next week, just in time for my trip to Hawaii.
