Staying so close to a small airport you often look up and see unique airplanes flying overhead. This small plane looks like a toy in the picture, but I can assure you it was a full sized plane overhead. 😉
Gliders are often towed up and let go to find their way back to the airport.
On my 60th birthday I took a ride in an ultra-light and loved every moment of it.

Pot Lucks in Florida are always a challenge.
So I’m going to tackle them the same way you would a buffet. Look over the entire spread and choose ahead of time what to splurge on and what to avoid. Fresh food vs processed. Make a small plate the same as you would at home. Limit myself to 1 dessert, and a small portion at that. The day of eat smaller portions throughout the day.
The day after get back on track. Don’t slack off on the exercise or be disappointed if you overdid it.
Dogs laugh,~ Max Eastman

Monday I joined the exercise group here at Sleepy Hollow. It was a lot more than I thought it would be, I ended up sitting for an hour afterward trying to re-couperate.
Tuesday I joined the local TOPS group and attended the meeting. It was good to re-new aquaintances and see everyone at the meeting.
