My favorite biplane

Me and the guys went to Wings and Wheels Day
at the Petaluma Airport.
Lots of old, old planes and cars.

My favorite plane was the pretty red one 

with gold scallops by the propeller.
A sport biplane, a 1930 perfectly restored Waco.

Fun in sun for some High Society amateur aviator back in the '30's.
Probably had a Dusenberg and a Cadillac 

in the garage with a driver on call.

After 5:00, the men sipped martinis and talked about flying
and the ladies sat in diaphonous dresses smoking cigarrettes.
