Thunderbird 1

Plane Spotting...

Lately I've been taking my lunch down by the airport. There's a little observation parking lot just around the corner from the general aviation terminal where you can watch the planes, and even the ship traffic out on the bay. There's not a lick of shade down there, though, and I was worried a bit that I'd roast in the hot sun. Fortunately, it turns out there's usually a pretty stiff breeze down there, far more than even just a half mile inland. Just open the windows on both sides of the truck, and voila! Instant air conditioning.

Question for This Evening...

How is it that once upon a time I was able to get at least nine 4 x 8' sheets of 3/4" plywood down the stairs into my basement, and yet the single 4 x 8' sheet of 1/2" plywood I bought tonight refuses to make the corner at the bottom of the stairs? And those two 12' long one by fours have no shot, no matter how bendy they seem to be.
