I’ve Got to Get a Job

After researching today’s history lesson, I’ve decided I’ve got to get a job. Before I wind up like Larry.

From the FAA Historical Chronology, 1926-1996...

” Jul 2, 1982: Truck driver Larry Walters reached a reported 16,000 ft. over Long Beach, Calif., during a 45 minute flight in a lawn chair tied to balloons, crashing into a power line on descent but alighting unharmed. FAA fined Walters $1,500 for the escapade. “

When asked why he did it ?

"A man can't just sit around."

“Lawn Chair” Larry
