    I celebrate; by avoiding anything called a 'Veterans Day Special'.

    I never quite made it to service, only one in my family that didn't. Well, after WW II it was determined my father's group wasn't actually military.

    Closest I came was a congressional nomination to the Air Force Academy.

    Floor going in at The Pit.

    The house next door...or how to NOT build a house-photo_2019-11-12_16-50-06.jpg

    The drone should be here Thursday, I'll put it together Thursday night and try for preliminary pictures on Friday. The first picture flight will probably be up/down on my side of the fence so no chance of losing it. Once I get familiar with the controls I can fly around the construction.

    Thanks to @IntheGroove for the drone!

    The Postal Orifice says the drone will be delivered between 1:30 and 4:30 today. Oddly specific time for them, the most I normally get is "Out for Delivery". Sometimes I even get "Delivered" when the mail carrier hasn't even been here. May not show up for a day or so after "delivery", sometimes never.

    On UPS packages I almost always receive a "Delivered" message in enough time to slowly get up and walk outside in time to see the truck coming down the street.

    Drone arrived, thanks again!

    There was a loose screw in the box that fell on the floor but a strong magnet got it. Can't have any more loose screws around here, it would get crowded.

    Practicing flying, doesn't hover as stably as I would have expected. Probably seen too many expensive ones.

    Good news, I can control it decently well but not quite up to pictures yet, maybe tomorrow after the quit or Sunday since they don't work on Sundays.

    Also good news, the chickens didn't panic. Stood back and watched, but didn't run away. A squirrel, however, was VERY displeased.

    So, instead of drone pictures, here's two from a ladder in the yard.
