Thanks for the photo and kind words Phyllis. Couldn't have done it without you.
Last weekend I was over at the Brands home and Kristal took in the arms and legs a bit.
Much better now. Unfortunately I broke the zipper on this flight suit and had to pin myself into it for the event yesterday. It will be operational again soon. Then we will weather the suit and it will really be done.

Zipper is repaired.
Many thanks to Blue for her hard work.
I need to find the time to weather the entire suit now.
I had to miss an appointment with Bob a couple weeks ago.
I want to be a dirty birdie!

Do you guys think I should shorten up the hose from the belly box to my vest?
I'm thinking it's a tad long.

One thing that might help is to position it differently. One end of your hose is connected near the top of the vest, but where is the other end? If you tried putting it at your side (or tucking it under the side strap, behind the top of the vest, or even under the belt like pilots did in RotJ) it would probably take up some slack without you having to cut it. After all, if you cut it, it might look too short. You do want a nice, loose length for it.

The other end of the hose is attached to the bottom of my belly box.
I thought that was the way to go based on what other y wing pilot's had done in the past.
It's a simple matter to shorten it but once it is cut its shorter for good

My wife and I joined weight watchers five months ago.
I have lost 45 pounds to date and am still going down.
It is nice but I have no
Clothing that fits me now including flight suits.
Not much time to fool around with hobby stuff either as I am running
The contracting firm and also preparing to try to sell my home to move to something better.
The good news,
I'll be a grandparent in eight months.
Just call me grandpa Scotty
