I got permission from the presenter of my award of merit to post his name and picture. His name is Paul Hayes – after he presented the award, he gave a presentation on his experience in aviation to our group. It was such an interesting and intriguing talk! Everyone was so impressed.
Here’s our pic:
I have the very nice looking award displayed at work. Love it!
It was my day off today. My mother met me at the apartment just before 9:00 so she could keep me company at my Tysabri infusion in Burlington. I had the time in my calendar as 10:30, but it was actually at 10:00. I felt so bad! The nurse said she was starting to get worried because we’re always there about 20 – 30 minutes early! Oops. Anyway, got infused and within an hour we were back on the road. I had made arrangements with the President of the local Air Force Association to meet him at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and take a tour of the Lancaster. It’s been a dream of mine for quite a few years to take a step inside this amazing plane:
I caught a couple pics of it doing a low and over at the St. Catharines Airport a year or so ago:
I think I had prolonged goosebumps for about an hour. The Lancaster is as amazing on the inside as it is on the outside:
Jan and I were both shocked over how high up we were.
Here is moi in the left seat:
And from the outside, looking like a little speck:
The amazing tour didn’t end with the Lancaster. I’m probably grossly mistaken, but I think I sat in the Avro CF-100:
And a couple shots of other aircraft:
I wish we could have stayed longer (although we were there for almost three hours!), but the Tysabri started to kick in, causing me to feel flu-ish. That was one of the best days I’ve had in a long time!
Today’s symptoms: I basically had no MS symptoms this morning! I started feeling yucky about four hours after the Tysabri infusion, but that’s to be expected. Everything will be better after a good nights sleep!
