We had our monthly RAA (Recreational Aircraft Association) meeting last night. My friend, Leon Evans from the Heritage Warplane Museum, came and gave us an amazing presentation. He was the chief pilot of the Lancaster when they flew it from Hamilton to the UK. I was so lucky to have flown in the Lanc a couple years ago and can’t imagine taking the trip they did in it. It was a wonderful presentation on his trip overseas – very fascinating. We had around forty people in attendance (some invites outside of our RAA group). When I met up with Leon a few months ago and asked him about giving a presentation, he told me something that stuck with me. He said that he presents to both aviation and non-aviation groups, and he has often been asked if he saw any UFO’s while crossing the ocean. I didn’t think our group would ask such a question, so I decided to – with a prop. I made this earlier in the day:
From the back of the room, I said “Oh Leon! Did you happen to see any [raises the alien head up] UFO’s while crossing the ocean?”
Tee hee! I’m so weird! It got a good laugh, so I’m happy. I was wearing this shirt too:
Something else that was out of this world was this little gem Mike and I discovered at the Bulk Barn. I’m not a big Oreo person but a chocolate covered double stuffed Oreo is SO good:
And at least at the Bulk Barn, you can just take one and then don’t have the guilt of buying a whole bag of naughty treats. Pinky concurs:
The temps have been so nice lately. Everything is in bloom and the tulips are out downtown:
The kitties are in bloom too:
Today’s symptoms: I’ve been dealing with a bladder and sinus infection for around three weeks, but the antibiotics I’m on are finally starting to kick them. Infections wipe me out so much and the weakness forces me into bed more often than I would like. My MS nerve pain has been worse over the last two days, down my right arm.
