Dear Folks,

Almost got to fly the plane today. Capt. Carlson said he would let me fly today and he would operate the radios, but we got as far as the taxiway and the mission was cancelled. So I'm on standby till the next flight is called. Probably won't be till about 10 am tomorrow if at all.

There was a band at the RPI tonight. It wasn't too great. I stayed there till 8:30. Then I had to go sign for tomorrows key list. After that I had to go hunt down O'Briant and give him a copy of the list since he flies right after me. And that brings me right up till now.

And right now there's not much happening. I'm going to take a shower and get some sleep.
