Clean Plane

I’ve been doing a lot of flying lately, so needless to say, I’ve been pretty happy.  I took another pilot up for aerobatics on Monday and she totally loved it.  I did a little air show for a friend and her family on Wednesday.  After that flight, a helper at the St. Catharines Flying Club cleaned Vyctor.  He’s extremely thorough and does an excellent job:

 

I had a really interesting experience after this flight too.  A couple blogs ago, I mentioned how someone asked me about the new Wal-Mart at the Fairview Mall.  Well, a woman and her son were sitting in the observation area next to the Flying Club.  I went out to them and asked if she wanted to bring him over to see my plane up close.  I was shocked when she recognized me – I thought she looked a tad familiar.  It was the woman from the Timmies!  What are the odds???  They both came over to admire Vyctor.  I told her that I would be back out at the airport on Friday to do aerobatics over the field.  I gave her my card and said she could call any time.  Well, I got a call tonight and her father is bringing her son to the airport tomorrow to watch the aerobatics!  That’s so neat!  I hope my passenger tomorrow enjoys it too.

When I got to work today, a co-worker came up to me and gave me a gift.  I couldn’t believe it – how cute!

Yup – it’s a Mickey pilot teapot.  That was so thoughtful of her.  I love the people I work with.

For only the second time this year, I rode my folding bike to work today.  It’s so convenient as it fits nicely under my desk:

There’s always a few dorks that laugh at me, but most people think it’s kinda neat.  It folds out to normal height, just with small wheels.  Geesh, what’s the big deal?

Today’s symptoms: Felt pretty good fatigue-wise today.  It wasn’t bad at all.  My sinus headache was really bad though.  I can’t believe how long it’s taking to heal since the sinus and septum surgery.  Hopefully it was worth it in the end.
