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