do you think, Clementine?"
it looks like Spring to me. Go tell them to get their rockets ready and bring
more carrots, apples & pears! Oh my!"
The Grey's are really getting
you got "Spring Rocket Fever yet"? Recent weather events in the
States have many rocketeers cooped up and away from the range. Most of
them turn to building this time of year to relieve the pent up urge to
launch something. We've had it before and it usually results in several
new additions to the fleet. A couple of years back five BSG Vipers
appeared in just 1 weekend.
all the people in the northeast still suffering through the dead of winter,
spring can't come soon enough and with Groundhog Day upon us they'll all be
looking for some sign to indicate how much longer they have to suffer.
for us, we don't have to rely on some other people's weather rodent; we have
one of our own! You may have heard of Punxsutawney Phil or even Birmingham
Bill but for us, we rely on "Odenville
Odie!" And we only have to look out of our kitchen window to catch his
forecast. That's right, he and his family live in a burrow on the back of our property and they come to feed off the fruit
and veggies we leave for them below our kitchen
mate is Clementine and we're expecting to see more "little Odie's"
around the first of May. As of January 31st, they seem to still be in
hibernation but I'm sure we'll be seeing Odie and Clementine very soon and for
us that will signal Spring is at hand!
your rockets ready and I'll keep you posted.

Above you see a rare photo of Dave Miller, appropriately dressed in black as owner of the clandestine black ops organization
known as Sirius Rocketry! What does he do in his spare time? He reads Rocket Babe, what else?
That's a nice looking Cestris Fighter he's holding too! Get yours from https://www.siriusrocketry.com
Verna Starr Cestris Fighter!
This is our favorite Sirius kit, the Cestris.
The kit is intended to fly on a single engine but it was easily modified to a 3 engine cluster complete with Verna Starr fighter
decals, also available from Sirius.

Are your rockets covered with cobwebs? Are they
faded, neglected, have the spiders set up housekeeping in the bt's and motor
casings of your best flyers? Are they lonely, languishing in a closet or a
dark dank basement, silently aching to be flown or finished? Is that faint,
strange noise you hear in the wee hours of the night, actually your old
rockets and motors quietly sobbing due to neglect? A crying rocket is a
very sad thing to see. Perhaps it's time for you to visit your old friends who
patiently wait for you to take them out into the light, into the blue and renew
the relationships you've been neglecting for so long. Remember the old saying:
"A rocket is a terrible thing to waste."
We're not judging you; we do
understand your plight. Lately it seems more and more often that life gets in
the way of flying as much as we would like. Far too often we make plans to
go to the monthly club launch or finally get
started on that super special build we've been planning for the last 15
years, only to have something happen at the last minute that keeps us from
making it out to the field or sitting at the work bench. Usually it's work,
sometimes it's weather but whatever it is, the end result is the same. As many
flyers like to say when we fail to launch; "no joy."
the weeds and dust taking over you HPR birds? Tsk, tsk.
you remember when we were kids? We dreamed of all the things we would build and
fly when we had the money. Well, now we discover we finally have the money but
don't have the time and it seems the universe is still conspiring against
us. I suppose striking a balance between our
responsibilities and our desires will always be a struggle. And while I
have said many times there's more to life than hobbies, there should still be
some down time that includes a hobby and if you're going to fly, take
a kid along too. They're great for chasing down the long range flyers.
Take care of what
is important first, just don't let the spiders and dust take over the rest of your
life, or keep you from the kids.
She'll go with you anywhere! Kevin, owner and moderator at the Alien Soup  sci-fi
forum, enjoys Rocket Babe - Dust Storm between innings at a recent ballgame!
