I flew to a new airport today. Well, the airport's quite old, but it was a new experience for me.
It's Pacoima-Whiteman Airport (almost every airport has a hyphenated name) but everyone calls it Whiteman. This throws me off because it always makes me think of Whiteman Air Force base (which is in Missouri). Since I know the base I'm thinking of is in Missouri, I start to think that I must have Edwards Air Force base and Whiteman confused and that it must be Edwards in Missouri and Whiteman in California. But, I know that the one in California is far away from LA, so I think I'm flying really far.
Here's the reality:
Whiteman is an AF base in Missouri.
Edwards is an AF base in California.
Neither on of them is an airport that allows civilian general aviation aircraft to land.
Pacoima-Whiteman is often called Whiteman and is a small airport inside of Burbank Airport's airspace.
The fact that it's fully engulfed in Burbank's airspace makes it a giant pain the butt for me to fly.
Still, I got experience at a new airport and, one of these days, I might have enough confidence to leave the Santa Monica area in a plane by myself (but not today).
As for fish, Mr. Bubbles has not been doing a good job of keeping his tank algae free. I told him he'd end up with a roommate if he didn't keep his tank clean, but, I really don't want to torture him like that. He's a solitary fish and he likes it that way. I wouldn't want another fish to take his favorite hiding space (in his log) or steal his food from him.
I suppose I could do what I'm supposed to do which is change out 1/3 of the water every 2-3 weeks, but, like Mr. Bubbles, I'm lazy.
Third Option: Accept that algae is a plant and welcome it with open arms into my tank.
