Since my last blog, which was forever ago (my bad), I have had the following great experiences. I’m only going to share a couple tonight and will continue the saga soon:
I had my youngest passenger ever! She was only seven! My previous youngest was eight. And she did aerobatics! And she flew the plane! I was so impressed. She wanted to fly more than anything. I couldn’t believe how forceful she was with the controls. She had us doing steep turns! I’m glad I made sure her seat wasn’t far enough forward so that she could adjust pitch too! What a great experience it was for both of us.
Within a week I had another aerobatic victim……errrrrr……passenger. His spouse was the winner of one of my flight gift certificates I donated to a local charity. After circling around Niagara Falls, we came back to Niagara District Airport to do some aerobatics. We did a bunch of maneuvers, with his wife watching from the Flying Club. We all had a nice chat before they left and it certainly sounds like it’s a flight she would like to try. She said that she had to psych herself up first. I mentioned that usually when people try to psych themselves up for something, they end up psyching themselves out of it instead. She seems like she would be fun to fly with so I hope she goes for it.
On a sad note, as you may have seen through FaceBook, little Donkay has gone missing. I stupidly brought him into the Seaway Mall in Welland, and he must have come out of my pocket. I’m so mad at myself for this. I tried calling most of the stores we were in and no one had seen him. My mother even went to a few of the places we were today, but no joy. Here he is enjoying his last meal with me at the Fonthill Tim Hortons, within an hour before going missing:
Hooves crossed we get him back!
More to come soon regarding my good month (minus Donkay!)
Today’s symptoms: I did not have the greatest night, but actually felt pretty decent today. My energy has been all over the place, as usual, but my lows haven’t been quite as low lately. I certainly hope this continues!
