On Saturday, Sept. 23rd I woke up to the gentle tap tap on my leg. It was 6 o’clock and Bill had been up and showered already. We wanted to leave for London at 7 so I needed to move. I had such a great sleep, don’t think I woke once. Bill was out hooking up the cargo trailer so I washed and prepared myself for the day.
|A great day to get a year older|
|Aside from the dirty truck windows, a pretty morning|
|Happy to be going with us today|
|Love this '67 Chevelle|
But even more got a kick out of the license plate
|Our turn off to the flying field, appropriately close to the Flying M truck stop|
|They need to get someone to paint their sign|
|Black Beauty nestled in there with the other Fords|
|We started at the back and moved forward with the shade|
|Bill getting his Stinson together, hoping for a maiden flight that unfortunately didn't happen|
But the plane looked nice all the same
|We have the best little guy|
|Kevin first does some aerobatics|
|Yikes! It's okay, he has perfect control|
|I love watching the pilots 'walk' their planes home|
|Chris brings his in for a landing|
Bill can name them, I can't
|A nice soft touch down|
|and comes home|
|Another beautiful plane|
Chris, being from Barbados, I think is a rum man!
|Bill walks his Piper Cub out for a flight|
|Good buddies flying together behind their stations|
|Keith's beautiful plane|
|Bringing it home|
|My sweetie doing what he loves|
|The Piper flew nice|
|And the walk home|
|Clemson and I took a walk, more wildflowers|
|The laneway to the road|
|Nice field for the guys to fly on|
|Chris, Lena and Giselle|
Giselle is looking through Keith's Virtual Reality glasses
so she could see what his sail plane could see
|A look inside a couple of cargo trailers|
|Keith took a lot of planes but only 3 shown here|
|Chris's set up using his business truck and trailer|
He is the owner of the business and does it up nicely!
Need a walk-in closet?
|Bill models his new wing drawer|
The guys thought this was a great idea and gave him the ☝☝☝
|The London Air Show was on this weekend and this military refueling tanker flew over|
Wish I'd had my zoom lens on
|This peaceful road takes us to..........................|
|this quaintly-named town|
For you, Brenda, I mean "Joy"
We were home by 7:15 pm, dropped Clemson inside and turned the a/c on. Bill unhooked the cargo trailer in its spot and we drove into Durham for supper. I had no intention of cooking tonight nor was it expected. We went to the Country Corner Café on #4 and ordered the small Haddock and Chips order. This was quick and delicious.
|Needless to say we had the a/c on in the truck all the way home|
|A quick shot of popular Durham diner|
|Yum, fish and chips and the best thing of all|
It was prepared for me and no dishes!
