Good dark and early morning from clear Kingston, Ontario. It's 18C now, and will later hit a sunny 27C. Yesterday I had a short ride on the Bianchi, which I've pressed into service since the shifter on the Cinelli broke. Since the Bianchi's original wheels have needed replacement, the rear hub and cogs don't mesh properly with the Bianchi's shifters. Plus, the Bianchi is much more twitchy, less stable, than the Cinelli. And, to add insult, the cyclometer would read speed, but not distance. Thus the short ride. On a better note, we went to the Pasta Shelf for dinner (Caesar salad and rigatoni parmigiana for me). By coincidence, our daughter and granddaughter were there picking up a take-out order, so we had a few minutes to chat. We're taking the kid to see the Tall Ships this weekend. We even have passports to take on-board tours. Painting: Manly MacDonald, "Harbour Scene with Sailing Vessel", oil on canvas.

Have a great day! (Sail ho!)

G’mornin’ fellow pluckers,, it’s 21 minutes west of midnight here. After some cool, rainy weather the temps are on the rise, with sunny skies in the forecast.
Drove to the charming village of Rosebud today, a 70 minute drive NE of Calgary, to visit with my brother and sister-in-law who are visiting my niece.

I was working a factory job in Kingston as a twenty something when the tall ships were in town. We got paid at noon on Friday & with cash in hand I couldn't force myself to go back to work. I went straight down to the waterfront with all the ships, people & pubs.

On Monday I talked to the boss a couple of times & he didn't mention anything! I was feeling pretty smug that he hadn't noticed. I was working away on one end of my bench & turned to the other end. There he was! sitting on my bench! "What happened to you on Friday?" he said. Flabbergasted all I could get out out was "Tall ships fever?"

He smiled & laughed & walked away shaking his head!

I envy Chuck for his trip to Rosebud . The trips from Drumheller to Rosebud over 11 bridges, through the badlands on a motorcycle were good times in Alberta!

A Good morning from a sunny 85 F upstate NY .

Here's a pic of my first ultralight from about 1985 , a Teratorn manufactured in Iowa , which I flew for about 4 yrs w/ many others following encapsulating about 12 or so yrs & over 500 hrs . This had a 289 Rotax twin being basically a sled engine & marginally powered the plane but was dependable . I'm proud to mention in all that time I never had a airframe or engine mishap & eventually worked on Rotax motors for friends . I can honestly say some of my first flights dealing w/ unfamilair aggressive thermals provided something between a thrill & pissing my pants . There are a couple of other UL's I owned in my pics .

Enjoy your day !
