Lucky Strikes

Lucky was devastated.
"It was a terrible loss," he says. "It was worse than losing your wife. You can replace your wife, but you can never replace that plane."

Lucky closes his scrapbook and returns it to the briefcase. He's done most of what he wanted in life, he says, except win the lottery, which he plans to do before he dies.

And there's another thing: restore an airplane and fly over Colorado like he did as a boy. Sure, he's getting older, slower, and hasn't flown for years, but he's not about to fade away in an easy chair. Besides, he knows someone with an old plane on his hands.

"Oh, I'll get around to it one of these days," he says. "Got to keep things interesting."
