Check the links to the left for a new link to a new video on youtube. golf tried to upload it directly here, but it wouldn't upload -- maybe too big for this server right now. Anyway, it's a flight simulator movie as a hint as to what golf wants to do in Hawaii in September (though I doubt she'll be able to land at TC's Island Hoppers pier . . . . ).

Now the REAL question is: How am I going to be able to stow away and take the flight with her? And if she flies with the doors off, what can I do to keep from falling out? Need some advice from my Little Voice, but I figure I have about six months to plan this thing out. I better make a note to myself to be sure to remember to take my headset.

Boy, things sure are quiet around here during the winter! golf has been busy knitting a sweater for Larry, or practicing her helicopter flying skills with Microsoft Flight Simulator (more on that in a minute). As you've seen with the fireplace pictures, we've had lots of fires, but we've had enough warm, spring-like weather to fool some of the plants. Here is one of our daffodils, already blooming!

This week there was a complete lunar eclipse, but we didn't get a picture of it. However, when golf got home around 6 p.m., the full moon was there so she tried to get a picture of me with the moon. Somehow the moon looked much bigger "in person" than it does in this picture. I'm rather disappointed with how it looks here. But this is the one that later that night got eclipsed!

Now, to explain that virtual helicopter flight computer practice remark above: golf and Larry are going to try to go back to Hawaii in September. golf wants to try to fly a helicopter with Mauna Loa Helicopters when she's there. She did this a couple of times, on the Big Island, but it will be different this time, I promise. But I'm not providing any more teasers at this point in time because we aren't sure that everything golf has planned will come to fruition. You're going to have to wait seven months to find out! But if it works as golf hopes it will, it will be worth the wait.

Stay tuned!
