A Night at the Science Center

Had more productive times the past few days at work. Working hard along with my colleagues, including two new management trainees who just joined the Ellisville branch. They will be strong additions to our location.

Got some scale modeling done the past few days, including work on two aircraft kits. I hope to have one of them done by the IPMS/Gateway (http://ipms-gateway.com) meeting next month, when a contest will be held.

After work last night, I headed to the Saint Louis Science Center (http://www.slsc.org/) for Missouri Aviation Historical Society (https://moavhist.org/) Night. I arrived at about 6:50 pm, so I missed the lecture that started the program, but I did join with others in visiting the Center's current exhibit "Above and behind," which I toured two weeks ago. After some time there, we went to the Omnimax Theater to watch the film "Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag" (http://www.fighterpilotfilm.com/), which came out 12 years ago. It was a thrilling look at a US Air Force fighter pilot taking part in a Red Flag training exercise in Nevada. I--and other viewers--felt we were flying along on these missions. A very nice night.

Off work today, I had my semi-annual visit with my dentist. Good news: All is well with my teeth. Got lunch and did a bit of shopping before coming home, where I finished doing my laundry and rested.

Looking forward to the Saint Louis FC (http://saintlouisfc.com/landing/index) home opener this Saturday night. I will let you know how that goes in my next post here.
