Flying Angel


Several PAX out of town, a few working, some MIA, and two posting to the Grill for a post-Thanksgiving beat down.

Teardrop texted he was running late due to locating the shovel flag which YHC inadvertently abandoned at the campground last weekend.  Started ~ 10 minutes late.

The F3 experience did not end here.  We went to coffeeteria at Four Twelve and as we were wrapping up, YHC asked Teardrop, “so what are your plans for the day?”  Teardrop responded, “I’m heading over to the church to see if I can rig up a trolley to an I-beam in the ceiling of the auditorium to “fly” an angel from the back of the auditorium to the stage for the Christmas Eve services.”  To which YHC replied, “Interesting, do you need a hand?”

So, several hours later, one near-fatal mishap, a trip to Reading to Harbor Freight, and varied tasks later, we both got a turn at “flying” through the church.  The proof of concept is now F3-certified.  It will need some additional work but will soon be ready for its debut.  Word has it Wichita will be the victim, I mean, angel to use the contraption in the service.
