snowbirds

Been awhile since I've had some Canadian visitors.  A nice long chat with my new friends and "fellow airmen" Larry and AW.  Both of them served in the Royal Canadian Air Force and AW was a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam war...and has been coming to the Big Bend since 1956 (3 years before I was born).  I invited him to try out my paramotor when he turns 90 next year.  46,59,29,0,B

Oh that Ben - his expressions and he knows how to play to the camera. :-) Canadians, wow. I started school in Edmonton. We had RAF friends too from Hamilton and saw them when we spent summers on the St. Lawrence. I like Canada. I met a man from England when I visited Big Bend. He said I had some adventures there with the Mt. Lion, etc. Hope you had a good visit.

John, you are 10 years older than my daughter who is still single. :-) And hey, there is a good, handsome man for me. AW is only 13 years older than I am. :-)
