We’re starting to get busy down here on the lake. Spring is like that. The daffodils have come and gone already, and our other flowers are starting to bloom. My “dad” installed a new swarm of honeybees in the hives on the dock (don’t worry, they ignore people,) and my “frenemies,” the geese, are nesting. And boy are those geese territorial!
Anyway, we’ve had a couple of checkrides to celebrate here this week. First, my friend Ed from Casper, Wyoming, passed his ASES checkride! Ed is no stranger to the skies: he spends most of his time flying pipeline patrol in the Intermountain West. He liked flying where there was lots of water – and where he could land on the water!
Then, my friend Willem came here all the way from the Netherlands! He holds an FAA Commercial license, and was coming to Seattle for a few days anyway, so he decided to get his seaplane rating. I like meeting people from all over the world!
It’s about time to start thinking about Fathers Day presents, Graduation presents, and summer plans. I’d love it if you would come hang out down here in the sun with me. Or, even if it’s raining – I don’t mind. C’mon down to the lake!
And, congrats to Ed and Willem!
