Fly, fly away as we celebrate International Civil Aviation Day.

I’m so looking forward to being able to fly again. I’ve booked a Cuba Vacation for January and have already started packing. 2 weeks on the beach. Now I just hope and pray the Omicron variant doesn’t shut down the world again.

One of the most historical moments is cause for pause today: National Pearl Harbour Remembrance Day. The surprise attack that drew the USA into WWII. On an island in Hawaii, where the world changed forever.

The food of the day is spun sugar as we celebrate National Cotton Candy Day. No other food could be so disastrous for diabetics, but I still can’t resist a small pinch of pink cotton candy. 😉

When I have a camera in my hand,
I know no fear.

*London-Middlesex COVID-19 numbers have now pushed our area into “Orange”. The numbers were significantly impacted by an outbreak at University Hospital in London ON. Allegedly because the staff from all floors shared a common lunch area (rumoured that the administration wouldn’t let them use boardrooms on individual floors). 12 deaths are now linked to the UH outbreak, (The health unit said Thursday that the outbreak has now been linked to 124 cases at the facility, with 62 involving patients and 62 involving staff. )

*The impact on my son’s wedding next Saturday, December 12, 2020 is that there will need to be more tables at the reception as maximum number at a table goes from 6 down to 4. (Stupid because families of 6 can’t even sit together) So my sister won’t be able to sit with my husband and I.

*I will be playing my flute behind a plexiglass shield. I tried my new microphone for my Nikon D750 and with a little technical help from my Oldest son we were able to make the following clip.
