Today I passed my Pilot Check Ride. I am good for another 2 years. For my birthday Kayelle got me a matching t-shirt and cap that had big wings, my last name, and "Aviation" below the wings. I wore them on my check ride. I also joined the United Flying Octogenarians

Congratulations, Steve! That's something to be proud of, and I love the sound of that shirt.

UFO ,PF! That's funny!

Pretty cool, SC. Haven't heard any dog tales from you lately. Are you still doing Angel Flight for humans and pets?

Because of the new tax laws, I do not fly dogs any more. However, I did make a Qualified Charitable Donation to a local Doberman Rescue. I have flown some of their dogs in the past.
I am still doing Angel Flights for people and boxes of blood and plasma.

Color me confused, but what affect would tax laws have on doing a good dead?

All of my volunteer flying including plane rental expenses are paid for out of my pocket . It is my contribution to Angel Flight. As a result of the new tax laws, I can no longer deduct my flights for dogs from my personal income tax. I love dogs, but a choice had to be made for financial reasons.

That is so sad. It's terrible the way pets are considered as just property when most people consider them an integral part of the family.
