mmmmmmhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.................

2 months............... :mrgreen: are those the imperial ,metric, or common or garden months :roll:

That was in September 2009, so are you using the Greek ,Italian, or Russian Calendar as far as forecasting a finishing/flying date :D :D

i am very impressed with the abundance of patience you and your family have. :lol: :lol:

You obviously do not sufer from "the are we there yet" syndrome:evil:

What is the secret :?:

Loads of Valium in the corn Flakes :lol: :lol:

Things a little tight, so been busy concentrating on the business :cry: :cry: :roll: . It’s my wife who’s Irish and introduced me to the Irish calendar. However we have now discovered that it is actually the SOUTH AFRICAN LABOUR (Traffic Department) calendar as it goes something like this January, February March, March, March, March. Anyway, we’re getting there slowly, as mentioned before; if you need a pax Simone would love to go with you in your Whisper. We will get there, we will get there, we will get there :) :) :) :D .Cheers Philip

Just a short report. We've decided to instal the Luggage compartment/box. So ordered that today. I was at Dene to help him move the airplanes around, so that we can get ours finished. Simone is now harassing me to have the plane finished.
