Good Luck Some Time.

Peter Kerr was a farmer and my appointed agent at Oaklands NSW. Peter did an excellent job and had plenty of bullshit to match his outward personality. He would come to the plane just to chat to me and the farmers who just might be standing around. Peter loved that.

One day about dinner time he drove in. We were using a stubble paddock as an airstrip. I landed and Peter walked over and suggested I shut down.

As he pulled up in his Toyota ute he saw the oil drain plug fall out followed by a slick of oil. We followed the oil trail back,picked up the bung, screwed it back, checked the oil which was still nearly full and I continued work. Wasn’t that luck. To have it spotted and not loose it in time for all the oil to be lost.

I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory. is offline   Reply With Quote
