What a joyous weekend I had. I flew for the first time in over three weeks! I’m glad I remembered how. I knew that to start the plane, I had push a few levers and buttons, adjust a few things here and there, turn a little key, tweak the throttle thingie and pull on the starter-do-hicky. Sure enough, I did all those things and my little propeller started a’ spinning! How exciting! There was quite a bit of traffic that day because the weather was so nice. Also, the air cadets were taking their gliders up. I had to wait for two planes to land before I was cleared to barrel down the runway. It felt so good to be airborne again. The clouds were less than 2500 feet, so I wasn’t able to go as high as I normally do. This also meant that I couldn’t fly the Niagara Falls scenic circuit, since planes need to be at 3500 feet. Oh well, it was still an amazing flight, which included flying over my little mother’s house. I called her and she came out to wave at me. I tipped my wings and headed to the south east. I did a low and over at the grass strip where I purchased the plane. All the dogs there came running out toward the runway. Good times!
Today at work, I gave GST system training to some of my coworkers. Most people remained conscious through the whole session, which was quite flattering! I have to give the same training to a different batch of co-folks on Friday. I’m sure that the people who had it today will tell all the Friday people what a pleasure and joy the training was. They’ll be so excited! They’ll also be so disappointed! Yea me!
Today’s symptoms: Didn’t feel too bad. My jaw hurt quite a bit though. I have to go for another cortisone shot on Wednesday morning – yuckaroo!
