Since the latest year of my life started the day before yesterday, I guess I have to put my resolutions somewhere, so that I'll be reminded of them when they are threatened by oblivion. Grow up and get a house. My life has played in small housings so far, trailers, BOQ rooms, small apartments. For my off year, right after my retirement, I had rented a stone farm house in Virginia, furnished and ready to be lived in, and liked it. Now I'm searching for one again, a bit tired of my 3-room apartment. But I'm not yet willing to forfeit my roof pool yet. Get behind the stick more often. I've been behind the controls of a plane less often as I wish I'd been after retirement. But a rather stressful job, and too many other activities make it difficult for me to observe the application of my engineering skills first hand in a cockpit. Get in touch with aviation history. Another resolution I'll not so easily forget, I have a trip to Europe booked in summer, together with a new friend, and get my butt into a training course (private) for a L-1049. Not to forget the solo on a restored warbird. Blow the dust off my surf board. And use it more often! The last time I've had a decent surfing must have been last year in July, another thing I plan to do more often. I guess that's the curse of multi-activity persons like me, we have so many activities we can't pursue them all equally. Read better stuff. This year it is official, I want to read more classic literature. Talk about Graham Greene, Steinbeck, Hemingway, for starters. Right now, I'm a strict fan of the bestseller lists of NYT, WP and all their names. Or should I join a Book Club? Remind me and give my head a biff when I'm about to forget!
