Her ladyship's big birthday lunch

The Same today as 1954 ! ( I wish )

Here are some photos I found of my pals in 1954. Yours truly, as you can see, hasn't changed at all ( ? ). A bit wrinkly perhaps. If any of you, Baz, Rufus, Alan, Roger, see this get in touch and we'll have more laughs about the size of feet and the day someone ( Who was that ?) bent his conrod driving through a water splash. ( We decided it was better to take off on the humpback and see how far we could fly ). Who was it who attracted a two year ban for overtaking a police car on a double white line and rebuilt his BSA Gold Star in his bedroom, then couldn't get it round the landing for the stairs when it was ready? and Dear old Baz who broke his leg when he hit the bank returning from The Salt Box Cafe but it was alright because I offered to straighten it ( Has he forgiven me yet ?)

It's been a while but---

A fresh look at this board seems in order. As I write, the rain comes down. There's another day tomorrow though except, duty calls!. The day after offers a respite from boredom as I attempt to pass the Cross Country qualification ( Airborn ). I just hope there's a friendly farmer waiting for me to drop in. The pundits say one should take a bottle of Moet in the cockpit just in case but I'd only drink it in celebration of still being alive after coming in over the hedge and not breaking anything. The aircraft's insured, not so certain about yours truly though. I was going to do this in the spring but someone broke the motor on the aircraft and it languishes, lonely, in a hanger. My pal Don bought one but it needs a Certificate and that costs time and money. I feel like one of Odysseus' shipmates, I went out full of confidence in the spring and here I am trying to avoid the snake hair of desperation in the autumn. I just hope the wife's not married again by the time I return home. I'd miss the smoked salmon and bubbly on a Sunday evening.

A great "Weak"end near Preston

A great weekend, the old geezer and his lovely wife went to stay with the lad and his bride at their new house.
What a time we had, I even cut the lawn! (Shhhh) and looking at the picture Im not as thunk as you drink I am.
They looked after us royally ( Thanks to the lovely Sally )

Flying again

Well, here's a piccy of the aged one having a brief interlude before dashing off to the gliding club again.

He's paid for an annual ticket which means he can use all the club gliders (Except the Starship, which is too expensive to trust to any old geezer in a hat) at any time and for as long as he likes....Whoopee!

The beautiful one won't get into anything that flies if it seats less than 150 though.
