    I would take them off when entering the main gate, or either make them look like the antenna for your latest and greatest personal communication device.

    Hey, I was just kidding, my rotors actually failed about two years ago....I survived the autorotation. And I am useless with personal communication devices - and subterfuge.

    Hey! What about us parents who have leeches for kids. I can't seem to get mine off my apron strings. He's been back just two days & the phone call came today for 1) more funds for laundry soap & new PT gear 2) books he'd left here cause they wouldn't fit into his bag 3) Oooops, forgot my phone charger plugged into the wall in my room. So I just taped up two of those pesky priority boxes full. I also dumped all the left over Halloween candy in the empty spaces along with a note saying "Lets play find the phone charger game -or- put a Plebe into a sugar coma. Have fun!" Helicopter parents my butt. They can't live without us! :biggrin:
