I was planning on taking off from work early today to go flying. The weather was el yuck-o all morning and into the afternoon. Around 2:30, it cleared just enough for a flightage. I bid my Team Leader farewell and headed out to the airport. Of course, I got caught by the bridge on the way there. It was only about a seven minute wait. It was still rather cloudy so I decided to just do circuits. I was happy to hear they were using runway 29, which is one of the smaller runways. I was also glad there was a bit of gusty wind going on, to make the landings a little more challenging. I think it was after my first circuit that the rain came back. It was just a light shower, so nothing to worry about. Actually, it was nice to get a free plane wash! I feel sorry for the folks in the tower today, as I was a little goofier than normal. On one of my turns onto final, instead of stating my registration number WGF (pronounced Whiskey, Golf, Foxtrot), I just said “It’s me!” After about the third circuit, I asked if they were sick of me yet. I was then informed that my last landing was a 9.5, 9 and 10! A few circuits later, I asked if he had a Sham-Wow that I could borrow to dry off my plane. I think I should make them another batch of fudge soon, to make up for my silliness today.
On the way home, I had to wait for another boat. I don’t mind the wait – I always have my iPod Touch with me to keep myself occupied.
Nothing much planned for the next couple of days. I am off Thursday (compressed). I’m going to visit my micro-mommy in Fonthill. We’re going to get a few things prepared for our Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday. If the weather is decent that day, I’m going to take a friend from work for a flight in the morning.
Symptoms for Today: Feeling pretty good today. I have been down lately and today was the first day in a couple weeks where I felt a little better. Physically, it was a good day with just a few muscle and joint aches.
