Orange is the New Orange

Orange is the New Orange

The weather finally cooperated enough that Mike and I could fly to Guelph for breakfast last weekend.  This was our third attempt – the first two we had to turn back due to weather.  It was a very windy day when we flew in, so it was quite bumpy.  My mother would have had a fit if she flew with me in weather like that.  Wuss!  Anyway, we were the only ones who flew in yet the restaurant was packed and we had to wait for a seat.  Typical, since their food is amazing!

We watched little Vyctor bouncing around in the cold, all snuggly with a sleeping bag keeping his engine warm:

Since it was a south-west wind, we were flying on quite an angle both ways just to keep going in the right direction.  Fun!

Mike snapped this pic of my amazing new 17-bladed propeller as we approached the Burlington Skyway:

The weather was great today so I made it out for another flight.  I haven’t done aerobatics in a couple of months so decided to do a bit of a rust remover flight.  Man, that first loop made my head go a little wobbly for a couple seconds after.  I then did my normal rolls, snap rolls, hammer head, cuban 8 then a bunch of combos.  After that, I just did a brief tour around the drained Welland Canal.  Looks pretty neat from the air:

Then saw this, which I’ve never noticed before (despite countless flights around there):

I don’t think they have to worry about any swimmers for a few months.  I guess those white marks on the posts are the water lines.

Short but nice flight today:

Back home, I had a nice little visit with nice little Jan.  Then I spent the rest of the day preparing for our Recreational Aircraft Association meeting tomorrow night.  I also chilled with some of the critters:

I think I’ve mentioned in previous blogs how my angel Mya kinda likes to sit (out of love, of course) on her sisters.  Well, this morning on the heater behind my bed was no different….and she stayed there despite Pinky’s growls:

You can see the love in Mya’s eyes!  Poor Pinky usually has something on her.  I was walking by the bathroom the other day and threw my hair scrunchie onto the counter, not knowing she was there:

You can see the love in her eyes, too!

Today’s symptoms: Have been quite down the last few days so the fatigue has been a bit worse than “normal.”  This has caused more headaches and aches and pains too, but I plan on feeling just marvy tomorrow!
