SilverStar and the Guppy . . .

This morning got off to a fast start with visits to two clients that were having problems. It took a couple of hours to clear their problems and make them happy.

But happy clients are paying clients.

My next stop was Brandi and Lowell’s to pick up our mail and packages that had come in. Getting out of the truck, I saw the Super Guppy flying over and snapped this photo.

Super Guppy 1

Built from parts of a Boeing 377 Stratocruiser fuselage, and first flown in 1965, it has been involved with NASA and the US space program ever since. It is still used today ferrying parts of the International Space Station and other NASA projects.

Finally getting home I got my tools out and went to work replacing one of my headlight bulbs that had lost its low beam. These SilverStar Ultra bulbs really light up the road, but they have a weak point.

They trade lifetime for brightness.

In my case this bulb lasted a little less than two years. Since I installed both sides at the same time, I expect the other side to fail soon.

Jan’s had a nagging headache for the last couple of days so she decided not to do Bingo tonight, but about 4:30 we did head over to Dickinson to have supper at Monterey’s Little Mexico for soup and nachos.

I mean, Chicken Soup is supposed to be good for what ails you, so Chicken Tortilla Soup has to be even better, right?

Thought for the Day:

I just wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.
