Despite the insane winds today, Mike and I decided to be rebels and fly out to Brampton for breakfast. We didn’t hear another plane until we got to Burlington. I guess most people don’t like flying in around 50km/hr winds.
Mike decided to order the Lancaster Bomber breakfast. It seemed like a lot of food – eggs, home fries, pancakes, toast and bacon, ham or sausage. We were a tad shocked when it all arrived and it was actually bacon, ham AND sausage. Good grief!
I can’t believe he managed to get it all down, except for the toast. Unfortunately, he weighed so much after that I couldn’t fly him back with me. He would have exceeded the weight and balance of my plane. Tee hee.
Look how cute little Vyctor looked, all cold and blowy:
We passed this rather amusing sight while taxiing back to the runway:
While heading back to St. Catharines, we took a little detour and flew over the winery where my friend Laura, my mother and I visited for an awesome wine tasting experience. It’s Kings Court Estate Winery in St. Catharines. I told the owner that I would snap some pics of his property next time I flew over. The big green roof really helped with locating it from the air:
The landing back at St. Catharines was a little hairy due to the insane wind, but it turned out well. No other planes at all when we were coming back, as the winds had picked up even more over the couple hours we were gone.
As always, I show pics of my wonderful family in these joyous blogs. Here’s one of Pinky, with fur. When the weather gets colder, she will literally start growing fur overnight:
Cats with fur – freaks.
Speaking of freaks, little skinny Mya crawled under the couch for some reason:
Then we have Zim having a bit of a drink:
The little dickens actually got out of his aquarium the other day. There is a small hole at the top of his tank for air. I still don’t see how he could have jumped from the upper platform to the hole, but he did it! I walked into the bathroom that morning and found Pinky and Boo staring at the corner, and there was Zim! I’ve since put screen over his tank lid. Geesh. Good thing his sisters protected him.
Since Abby is Mike’s favourite, I tried to get a nice pic of her this morning to send to him. This is the result:
So there are a few of my weirdos for you to enjoy. You’re welcome.
Today’s symptoms: Felt pretty good today. Much better than I was feeling yesterday, where I was more fatigued than normal with lots of yucky aches and pains.
