Egads! It’s A Spad! Part 14

I think that I need to remove the TV from the workshop. It seems that Chad has been watching a lot of TV. At least, I think that’s where he gets his ideas. First I found him getting a chemical peel, and then I walk downstairs to find him looking like this:

He had a sunburn! Chad! There’s just something not right with a Spad having a farmer’s tan.

After a few days the red wasn’t as bad, but he was still pretty sore. I offered to rub some aloe on him, but he didn’t want to admit that he was in pain.

I guess that you have to let them learn their lessons first-hand. At least he had used some sunblock on his tail.

Apparently he just wanted to be ready. Jay was getting close to getting Chad’s flight suit ready and so Chad wanted to make sure that he looked really good. He’s seen Top Gun a few too many times, I think, as he is trying to talk Jay into giving him a mirrored canopy so that it looks like aviator sunglasses.

Jay managed to get the motor mount permanently attached, but it wasn’t easy. Chad is so excited about finally getting dressed! He was in the middle of brushing his teeth when I visited him.

Although, I was glad to smell the minty freshness because initially I thought he had the Phobie! (If you don’t recall, Old Yeller had the phobie in the movie… aka Rabies).

Once the motor mount was on Jay wanted to make sure that it would stay. He didn’t want Chad’s nose falling off in mid-flight.

Once that was dry Chad asked me to take a ‘Before’ picture so that he can see just how good he does look once he gets his flight suit on.

*Chokes back the tears* My little Chad is growing up so fast!
