Glider guy

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

Here’s the glider I’ve been flying the past couple of weeks. It doesn’t exactly look like the fancy racing gliders you might expect, but it’s solid as a rock and a very popular training glider. I like it! Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken a few days ago at the Jean, Nevada glider port, and part of my famous Machinery series.

Once again, I have failed to post regularly. Some people simply never learn. I may be one of them. Let’s see, what’s been going on? Last time I wrote, we had just gotten back from the Bay Area. We went back for Mother’s Day. For another quick weekend. We visited Katy/Cliff/Mia again and also had a nice meal with Ryan. Joanne wanted to visit her parents’ gravesites, which we did. They’re in a beautiful cemetery. She’s planning to buy a spot for herself there too.

We went to Portland and Seaside, Oregon last weekend. It was cool and drizzly most of the time, but that just enhanced the beauty of the place. Our hotel was right on the beach at the famous Seaside Turnaround – the perfect location. We could see the beach from our room and it was even better to go downstairs and walk on the beach and the excellent boardwalk. There was good food galore and tons of relaxation. We went out to Haystack Rock one day and spent some time gazing into the tide pools. We also drove the Seaside bumper cars. Twice. Joanne organized a pack of little girls to take my bumper car out. It was quite effective.

On Monday, we checked out of our hotel and went to Portland for the flight home. We got there several hours early, so we took a fun Segway tour of Portland’s riverfront area. We both know how to ride a Segway now! That’s a skill that may be important someday. Probably not, though. Anyway, it was my first trip to Oregon. It’s beautiful up there.

We’ve had a cool spring this year, but it has finally warmed up. It’s been over 100 degrees the last three days. It feels great. Finally!

Right after we got home from Oregon, Joanne started her new job! She has left Downtown Grand and is now working for Aristocrat Technologies. They make gaming machines. She’s very happy there so far. I’m delighted for her congratulations on landing the job, Joanne!

Paul and Melissa live in Las Vegas now! Well, they actually live in Henderson. I’m delighted to have them here! My Loyal Readers may hear a little more about them in the future.

Joanne and I are just finishing a very relaxing pedicure. I love pedicures! They’re the woman’s best-kept secret no longer.

And I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this very rare non-animal Morrowlife Entrepenurial Agency business opportunity: toilet landlord!

See you on Monday
