Pancakes in Waterloo

I had the day off today so Jan and I took advantage of the nice weather to go for a flight.  She hasn’t been up with me for many months, so it was nice to have her back in the saddle again.  We were planning on flying directly to the Kitchener/Waterloo airport, but had to take a slight detour when my oil access door opened – again!  I really need to get that fixed!  Fortunately, it happened when we were just across from the Grimsby airport.  I brought us down, taxied to the apron, shut down and closed the door.

It only took a few minutes from touch down before we were up again.  Jan snapped a couple of nice shots along the way:

I was shocked to hear how much traffic there was at the Kitchener/Waterloo airport.  I think I was number seven to land.  Once down, we taxied over to the Runways Cafe.

We were both a little hungry, so we split an order of pancakes and toast.  After visiting the pilot shop, we headed back out to little Vyctor for our flight home.  The traffic was a little lighter at that time, and we only had to wait for one plane to land before we took off.

Jan took a nice shot of the airport while we were taking off:

The clouds were rolling in a bit during the flight back to St. Catharines.  It was still quite smooth.

I do believe this is Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton:

Soon after landing, the tower called me over the radio and asked if my co-pilot landed, since it was such a nice landing.  Ha ha!  Very funny!  Obviously my mother couldn’t land the plane, since despite sitting on four phone books, she still can’t see over the dash!  Geesh!  We decided to visit the tower folks after parking the plane.  I met the tower supervisor for the first time.  He said that he has been reading my blog.  He also mentioned that he can’t believe how cute and adorable my cats are!  He said they are the most attractive breed of cats he has ever seen.  He is even considering getting some himself!  Well, this is basically what I perceived him to say after he mentioned they were ugly!  Clearly, no one in their right mind would ever suggest that my kitties are anything less than perfect looking.  If I had actually believed that he said they were “ugly”, my heart would have shattered into about twenty-seven pieces.  No one would be that cruel to do that to me, so I must have just misheard him.

Today’s symptoms:  Feeling really good!  I had a nice amount of energy all day and I haven’t been hit with any aches or pains yet today.
