TWAS THE NIGHT OF THANKSGIVING,
BUT I JUST COULDN'T SLEEP.
I TRIED COUNTING BACKWARDS,
I TRIED COUNTING SHEEP.
THE LEFTOVERS BECKONED -
THE DARK MEAT AND WHITE,
BUT I FOUGHT THE TEMPTATION
WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT.
TOSSING AND TURNING WITH ANTICIPATION,
THE THOUGHT OF A SNACK BECAME INFATUATION.
SO, I RACED TO THE KITCHEN, FLUNG OPEN THE DOOR,
AND GAZED AT THE FRIDGE, FULL OF GOODIES GALORE.
GOBBLED UP TURKEY AND BUTTERED POTATOES,
PICKLES AND CARROTS, BEANS AND TOMATOES.
I FELT MYSELF SWELLING SO PLUMP AND SO ROUND,
'TIL ALL OF A SUDDEN, I ROSE OFF THE GROUND.
I CRASHED THROUGH THE CEILING, FLOATING INTO THE SKY,
WITH A MOUTHFUL OF PUDDING AND A HANDFUL OF PIE.
BUT, I MANAGED TO YELL AS I SOARED PAST THE TREES....
HAPPY EATING TO ALL - PASS THE CRANBERRIES, PLEASE.

Steve Sanderson and his grandson Cody were invited to fly with Bob
Gillman in his Cessna 182 on Sunday to the South Carolina Breakfast Club at
Mt. Pleasant. Cody flew right seat and learned a LOT about IFR,
panel mounted GPS, auto pilots, ample horsepower, talking to ATC and engine
monitoring via Bob's excellent teaching. Steve relaxed in the back seat.
The British Car Club from Charleston brought their toys for all of
us to admire and the catered breakfast was excellent. Sadly, none of the
dozen or so Whiteplains pilots in attendance brought home the tax exempt

Pictures from: Steve Sanderson & Don Cook
Whiteplains hosted a Young Eagles flight yesterday morning. We flew a total of ten cadets from the Lexington HS AF JR. ROTC. Thanks to the following pilots and ground crew. Jack Fastnaught, Bill Como, Steve Sanderson, Don Cook and Posie Cook. We managed to only have one cadet get sick, and it was confined to a barf bag.
Lt. Col. Tucker, head of the Lexington HS ROTC, said that he should have another group of ten in two months. If you would like to help out, let Don Cook know.
