Merry Christmas! This year was somewhat more relaxed than previous years. Thanks to some extra help on the bus. (thanks Twin!) Dad and I even had some time to go up and fly on Christmas eve! Since I'll have to fly form the right seat for my instructor rating, I let dad have the left and I sat in the right seat. (I have flown from the right seat before) I let dad do most the flying, he did pretty good, except he kept trying to land it 40 ft above the runway, that's when I would take over. It was a lot of fun. It makes me look forward to getting my instructor rating. That evening we had our family Christmas, And left for Grandpa and Grandma Hager's house. Christmas day we were able to sing at the prison in Prairie Du Chien, it went really well. It is really neat to be able to be there on Christmas day.
Everyone have a blessed new year.

Ok! just so that all my "fan base", (is it three or four?) that check my blog know, I'm still alive, around, and well, keeping busy.
Now, I'd like to address some things I see have been going on in my "virtual cockpit". First of all, good things take time. I know it might take ten or twenty years, but I just might end up with some real nice whiskers. And besides, you can't blame a guy for trying his best, can you? I'm mean, my Dad's Dad was the only one in his unit in the army that could go almost a whole week in boot camp without shaving, and not get in trouble! So the fact that it can be seen on a picture after only ??????? days, ok, maybe it was months, anyway, its still beating the odds, even if it is just barely. A couple weeks ago my family was even saying it was to the point of needing trimmed! So I looked it over carefully and trimmed three of the whiskers. They were right, it looks a lot better after that. And just so you know where I stand, I stand behind my whiskers!
