Leather gloves I sewed and did the beadwork on some 30+ years ago. While flying in Northwestern Ontario with a Luscombe in the winter time they were essential! One morning I went to fly home after a meeting, and they said I should wait to go until it warms to 40 degrees below zero!! Brrr! If you didn’t know 40 degrees below zero is the same temp in Celsius and Fahrenheit! Below is the is a phot of the plane (FZA) that I flew for most of the 440 hours I accumulated as a pilot.

For all my great Canadian friends! This is the Luscombe in which I logged most of my 440+ hours as a pilot! Nostalgia!

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. Matthew 28:2

He is Risen Indeed!

Stones from Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, and the sunrise from a trail starting at the Chowrasta in Darjeeling, India!

Happy Canada Day


Some great Canadian friends, and memories!



It’s National “Take a Hike” Day!


And “Homemade Bread Day!”



Blue Waters


The blue of the Ontario lakes was accentuated with Lightroom’s “Bold HDR” preset!

Photo credits: Our grandson who used my camera to capture this scene! I did love the red accent in the background!



Also enjoyed homemade apple butter on home made bread from a wood-fired oven!


Nostalgia: A house we called home for four and one-half years!

Tiny but Tasty!
