Swap Meet at Columbia, Illinois Rolls Around Again...

Post  Kim on Sun Nov 05, 2017 9:43 pm

The years just keep rolling by, and so do the Swap Meets.

My buds from Breezy Hill, myself, and Miss Beth crossed the Mississippi River for one of our favorite Swap Meets at Columbia, Illinois.

Billy got himself a couple Ringmasters, complete with Fox engines, which saved me from temptation...I sure don't need another Ringmaster...but Evil Kim probably would have made me buy them anyway.

My score was small, but powerful, hooking myself a Tee Dee .010 and small free flight plane, with the Tee Dee's box included, along with a not-too-bad Spitzy.  Got some cute, treadless wheels, and that wrapped it for me.

Beth set about charming some of the LED lighting guys out of some strips of illumination to outfit her kayak for night operations...a totally separate story there.  

Anyway, some pohtos of the place and people...

Is that a Fairchild PT19 fuse? Any idea what company produced it? Actually... Huh... I think it's a blue-version of the smaller .020 powered Cox "Army Trainer"... Shocked



I see that Cox made a backplate-carb for this model. I thought that the "Sky-Copter" had the only .020 engine to be fitted with one.

Yeah, this is the 'ST-3' version. I had the reverse color (white fuse) when I was 14. Guy wanted 20 bucks, and I should have bought it. Gonna watch for it at the next one at Mt. Vernon.

I was looking pretty hard at it, but already have one (thanks to Ron!!!), and was hoping to get myself a nice O.S. 35 for my Top Flite Hurricane. Of course, all bets are off when there's an .010 on the table !!

From what I hear from other couples we have met Renie and I are an anomaly

From day one Aug 1983 we commingled our incomes and vowed to never make any purchase over $$$ (changing target) without discussion... allowing that for certain occasions a gift may be secret and NOT disclosed... at at that we discussed how to accommodate such a purchase without throwing the family finances in a tail spin

She Who Must Be Obeyed just turned 60 yesterday and I got ass handed to me about the $500 gift
Same woman was A OK with a grand worth of rifle for Son's upcoming birthday

Such is life

When I got big into golf...bitching
When I got the best HAM equipment...bitchng
When I thought I might do CL Combat....bitching
When I bought a lot of Firearms...bitching
When I decided to learn reloading..bitching
When I deliberately got a breeder French Bulldog (not the pound) ..bitching

BUT I just smile,,, cuz she knows not to mention about when I bought her a $16,000 embroidery machine, and set her up in a $25,000 climate controlled shop ( that I did all the build labor in) with easily another $10K in sergers, presses, vinyl cutter, computer, TV and expendables....I never poke any of this back at her....

Renie just likes to bitch, and after 34+ years I still love her dearly

Marriage is a combat sport...and it is better with a worthy adversary that you like....grin

Yep, we all got our own thing, but at the ripe old age of 63, with two marriages and two divorces, and two attempted reconciliations by those antagonists, and calling all my own shots for almost 20 years...reckon I'm just spoiled....
