It’s amazing that everything could hinge on a tiny piece of plastic…

So when I talked to Jeff the repairs guy at Aerostitch he let slip the question: : “you got one of them new zippers?”… which makes me long for one of them ” old zippers”

He patched me thru to Andy.. a customer service manager guy… here’s what I proposed to Andy..( by the way why do I keep running into Andys? MANCHESTER!) … send me a new suit overnight and I’ll wait for it…. he said he’d have to check on that and call me back…(good move the check in/call back..I like it)

Ring ring…no dice… they’ll warranty repair it no problem..even cover the shipping there and back… but  no new  suit.

So off I go to Escondido, where Rick and Steve sell me not just a new BMW Ralley jacket and some neat pants that convert to shorts…but also a new set of skins…K60s ( those are tires for the uninitiated.)

So off I go.. headed to the Salton Sea. And then back to plan a (or am I on b?)

Oh and the guys were great at the Beemer dealer, of course they understand wacky traveler types and got me right in.

Steve even gave me a t shirt at the end…. nice . (But only after I told him about the blog… so that’s cheating I guess… but I bet he’ll give you a shirt if you set your cc on fire too)

Wait now..forgot the best part… they are gonna ship, not just my Battlewings home, but my sweaty suit too! Now that is good sales work guys.  Keep it up and we’ll be out of these economic troubles in no time..Yes people, sales guys are our saviors.. do it guys, we need your help!

Your posts keep me very entertained!!! The picture you sent of the statue of the sailor kissing the nurse after the end of the war is hanging in my daughter’s room( not the picture you took but a poster of that moment). I always loved that photo but that’s not why it hangs in her room… It hangs in her room because the actual sailor (don’t remember his name) came to Taylor’s class at STA ( your school… In case you forgot because you seem to have forgotten everyone at that school… Did you really go there.. Lol) and spoke to her class and told them it was random although posed but he did not know the nurse. He just connected with her recently (maybe thru Facebook) and many people have claimed to be him in the past to her but finally after many many years they connected and she accepted that it was him!!! I wish I could say that they are now living together but thats not the case!
