Once a year, I’m lucky enough to go and hang out with some great guys. In the foreground, looking like he’s ready to whack me with a box end, is Kevin Brown. He is the owner of BlueStem Arial Sprayers. My good fortune is that he is also Rhapsody’s IA, one of the best supporters that Third Strike Wingwalking has ever had and one of the best friends a wingwalker could hope to find.
Not so long ago, I made the treck back from Oklahoma after finishing the annual inspection on Royal Rhapsody. Again, I was taught a little more about my A/C, as I do every year thanks to the ongoing tutelage from the crew at BlueStem. With any luck, I will see Kevin and his lovely bride Cherrie in Las Vegas in a week or so and then, I hope to have a spring training session close to his base of ops. so we can visit some more. It’s great to have such caring sponsors but when I show up at the hangar, no one really cares to much about how many media hits I made that season, they just all want to give me a hug.
Aside from offering top notch maintenance, moral support, education and spiritual guidance Kevin is also determined to find me a good husband so you can either send him your credentials or run when you see him depending on how you feel about possible enforced matrimony 🙂
