"The Grass Is Brown Everywhere"

Year's ago I took a job in Texas and when I started work I discovered that I had been "sold" on the job as much as I had been selling myself to the company.

After 2 weeks of discovering how this new job was even worse than my previous one, I returned to the former job (with a big pay increase) and coined the phrase "The Grass Is Brown Everywhere" to explain why I returned.

The acronym TGIBE became my username on many forums and accounts over the years...

Yesterday I got out for the first time in 3 weeks and with no time on the SIM I was a bit nervous. But in the end I had added a couple of new skills.

On the 3rd pack I decided to try some figure 8 circuits. I had been practicing them on the SIM a month ago and it just felt right (I was getting a little bored of stall turns). Well, once I started doing it the muscle memory kicked in and I just flew the bird through them for a while. I think the best part was that I didn't have time to think - I just needed to feed input to the sticks. It was kind of strange.

My knees were knocking after that pack and then I decided to add piros. These were a non-event type of event, but it still took a bitt of effort to force myself to feed in some hard rudder! In then end I found tthey were quite easy - and they look a lot more impressive that they really are

It was a good day, but after I got home I found that my belt had frayed and split partially. Good thing I found it, but now I have to order some parts again...
