… another week is underway and methinks it shall be a very good one … have full clearance on the hip thing and waiting for my flight instruments to be returned so I can get back in the sky … maybe a couple of weeks to get the boat back in the water somewhere and in the meantime it is nice to be walking the neighborhood and the Ponds in Page Springs again after a year of not being able to do it. Geez, what a great start to the week!
