Flying lesson.

Here's some polaroid's Rene took of me before I had a flying lesson, my Dad had bought for me as a Christmas present. It was a couple of years ago, I've got short hair, I quite like it.
I'm nicely colour coded with the plane, as you can see.
When I was a child, I wanted to be a pilot, as well as an astronaut and racing driver(formula one), when I grew up, but now that I have grown up, I can say that although I loved the flying lesson, I haven't taken any more.
I really like these photo's though, I had a great day.
Hope everyone's doing well, thanks for all the shouts, take care people and GMaS.

Okay, GMaS? I'm unhip. Nice lessons in flight. I probably seem manic by now. Taking a needed break, and just finding here interesting posts. The art especially (a soft spot).

Back to the grind. Thanks, and GMaS, but I have no idea what I'm saying.

Mikey, I'm terrified of heights. The owner of our company is a pilot, he has his plane in a hanger accross the street at John Wayne Airport and he flies regularly. My worst fear is that he calls me out for a meeting up in Tahoe (where he has a house)...

My brother-in-law has a pilot's license, although, he is a commercial electrical contractor by trade, his dream was to fly lear jets, he's flown a lear a number of times, but not full time. I guess it's something that some of us just have to do.

I prefer ground level, with a nice cup of tea..

I've never been on a small single engine plane. Don't know if I'd be thrilled or terrified. It looks like you were having fun.
We still like you even without your pilot's license.

I was able to go on a Piper Warrior when my son was learning to fly. His teacher invited me because at the time I had never been up in any kind of plane. I got seasick or airsick. Never went back. I'll bet you would have made a great pilot!
You should write a song about flying!

Dear Mikey

Hey, it's dumping snow here - best ski season in a few years.
You'd better hurry up, before it's all gone...

I have always wanted to fly, jump out of an airplane (God knows why?), parasail, hang glide, etc.
All that & I'm terrified of heights!

The only solo flying I've ever done is in my dreams & I do that quite often & very well!

I did notice the colour coordination before you mentioned it!

I love your art posts, but very much enjoy your life photos, too.

Take care & looking for you on Beth's blog. (Thanks)

Funny joeboy!! Hey Mikey looks like you had a great time. I was thinking of getting a pilots licence but it takes a long time and I guess you have to be very detail oriented? and that leaves me out......michael :)

I'm terrified of flying.You got
guts Mikey.

I had a never ending dream last night that I was flying from Russia
to the U.S and the flight had no
end to it.It would just fly for all
eternity.Then I awoke from the dream all drenched,all wet.I wish
it were a never ending sex dream
that made me wet instead,LOL!!!

Hi Ginab, give me a shout, thanks for popping by, I'll post up some more art for you soon, take care.

Hey Gary, nice to hear from you, I've never been scared of heights, weird eh. It's a great feeling though. Thanks for the shout, take care mate.

Thankyou Elaine, it is totally different from a big jet aircraft, and being in the driver seat gives you that extra buzz. Thanks for posting, take care.

Hey thanks Zoe, you are so sweet, I'm sorry to hear about your experience, I think it would be different if you were in the front seat, hope all the cat's are good, take care.

Hi Lucy, how's my blog buddy doing? Thankyou very much, maybe one day I'll do it, it would be so cool wouldn't it. Take it easy blog buddy and pass on my regards to the family.

Hey thanks Elena, to be honest, I think I was a bit, which made the experience even more intence.
I've seen your mum's painting's, and I advise other art lover's to do the same, they are gorgeous, truly magnificent, thankyou for posting them, take care.

Hi Dale, sounds cool, hope your taking full advantage of the weather there, I'd love to do them thing's as well, but there's so much to do. Hope your well, I shall go to your daughter's blog hence with. Take care.

Hey Justin, sounds like a cool film, actually I kept getting the urge when I was up there, to dive bomb the plane, but I didn't, in fact I kept it very hidden. Great experience though.

Hi Joeboy, for the mean time at least my friend, hope your good mate. I've just put how my urge's to dive, could have been a source of danger I suppose.

Hey Michael, good to hear from you mate, yeah, just a bit detail orientated I should imagine, nice one. Hope your good mate, take care.

Hey Mike, sorry to hear about your dream mate, as for when you said you were wet through this morning, I thought at first that you had wet the bed through fear, if you've been keeping up with my Indonesian blog, you would know that one night or morning, I dreamt that I was on the top of the world, actually a huge mountain, and pissing over the whole world, I woke up, and found that I had pissed all over myself, ironic eh. Thanks for the post here mate, take care.

Ooooh, waiting for more art. Actually these pictures are quite cool, I like the colour in them. Ever thought of painting the lower one?

Charts are shifting around again and you are back up to 7. See? Nothing to worry about. Kind of like playing roulette...

I'm off to see the New Pornographers on Saturday (2nd overall on IAC currently, check them out if you haven't already), and the band I'm promoting, Blonde From Fargo, is floating around the low 70's on the Alternative chart. (They have made 21 on Alternative Modern). Nothing to complain about then, #7!!!

We all play the game, and WHAT a game it is! Don't worry, though, you're a cutie... you'll stay on the first page for a while, I'm sure!

(Just so you are clear -- I'm a woman!)

Thanks Elena, will do, hope your good, take care.

Thankyou very much Jack, that's very sweet of you, so are you. About the chart thingy, I know I'm doing really well at the moment, don't take any notice of me, I just got all caught up in all. I hope you enjoy the band on Saturday, and I also hope the band your promoting rises quickly up the charts. Thanks for the shout, take care.

Thankyou Ginab, what a lovely complement, cheers you hipster. Take care.

Hey...Didn't know you were a sky pilot. Way cool!

I like your hair short. Mine is about the length yours is now and I have been considering a short cut again. I don't know? I really like it long. Gee wiz.

Peace, love and light,
