Saturday Flight

Thanks to Jeroen for taking me up for a couple of hours in a Cessna on Saturday afternoon.

It was wonderful.

A Simple Question

Saw this book in a remainder bookstore today.

Though I think it was meant to be whimsical, my first thought was “I’m not an alcoholic and I’m still alive, so I think the answer is no.”

Probably a bit blacker than the book had in mind but there you go.

(I also own a pair of slippers like the ones on the cover)

Home Again

Mission accomplished.

Spirits were high on the return trip.

Home safe.

Very long day.

Still warm, though late.

Annual Tradition

January day trip to Rundle Mall, IKEA, Costco, Harbour Town DFO, (2) Officeworks, Koorong, and anywhere else that fits. What we lack in numbers is made up with enthusiasm.

You can’t let the day get away from you.
