Ha ha Ena Sharples that brings back memories. I remember the scenes when she used to sit in the snug with Minnie Caldwell.

In real life she looked really well dressed. Same with Hilda Odgen, you wouldn't recognise her without her curlers and headscarf.

I am happy today because the annual summer festival at the local animal rescue centre was a great success. Lots of sunshine and lots of people buying things für their pets. To top it all, three cats found new homes today.

I'm part of a 2-man team organising a Projektwoche Segelflug for a nearby school (Gymnasium) to take place last week.

Not an easy task (the organisation).

Actually I meant next week (back then).

 

Fast forward: the project week "Segelfliegen" took place last week.  We were able to fly every day (Would not have been possible the previous week). The Monday was rather cold with "drizzel stopped play" mid-afternoon.  The Tuesday started with low cloud.  The final three days were sunshine, heat wave & local thermals.

 

The 11 kids had a total of 111 flights - some had longer flights using thermals.  On the Wednesday the parents & elder brother of one boy came by so I got to fly them all.

Friday several parents came by (curiously it was the mothers who wanted a flight).

 

Results: so far two (one boy, one girl) have joined the club & were flying last weekend (with instructors of course).

In addition to an e-mail of thanks from the organising teacher we got another mail of thanks from one of the mothers...

 

Downside: I was so tired after the whole week that I stayed away from the airfield on Saturday & missed a cracking good day (one club colleague flew a 550 km trianglar task around Hamburg airspace).

Strange fact: your reputation score almost matches the number of days you're old :).

 

This would explain the plethora of toddlers on Toytown ;)
