Fall migration continues

Runways... 3, right, center and left are all occupied as these three mallards made clean and parallel landings ... not always like this, as when they land in the middle of another flock of ducks there is usually a mess. I took this shot over the weekend down at the ponds and they are really beginning to fill up as the fall migration continues.

A busy weekend with trips to Flagstaff to see friends; we ate at a restaurant in the downtown area and I was amazed at how neat it is. When the weather warms up more I'll be exploring that area. Some very neat shops and restaurants too. Not exactly set up well for handicapped persons thus the reason we never did much up there. I like the town square too and they show movies on the wall of a building during the summer on a weekend night (forget which one). I do like it up there.

Got a couple of fun flights in on Friday, but nothing over the weekend ... other things to do and today I got the 95 van pretty well detailed outside and inside and it looks very good. For now I plan to keep it and wait on a new vehicle for some time. I really love this van with all the wood, carpet and other amenities usually not found in vans. Thanks to the good family Anderson (Anderson Automotive, Sedona) it runs like a clock.

In not that many hours, my friend Russ will be flying over here from Payson to give me my biennial flight review; followed by some opal cutting and polishing. Getting used to the idea that I can do the things I want to do ... Cork would always tell me to just leave her alone and go do things; couldn't do it then, but I think she is telling me to do it now. The guilt is dissipating and a new sense of freedom is returning. Good feelings!

Have a terrific day



For life holds cheers as well as tears,

Take this old toast from me:

This world a riddle hard you call ...

A mess from which you fain would shrink?

Perhaps 'tis wisdom, all in all.

To learn to laugh as well as think.

Max Ehrmann
