Cars and Planes

Monday, September 01, 2014

Yesterday was the Kent Hop. This is an event run by the Kent branch of the Morris Minor Owners Club. It is a yearly event and this year it was set up at the airfield at Headcorn and Ex WWII base.

This was an amazing event as not only did we have cars on display but and all day air show as well. Aircraft were taking off all day for parachutists about every 40 minutes.

We also had an air band radio to listen to the tower. This meant that we could hear both pilot and tower.

I have put a few of some of my pictures here but there are a lot more on my Flickr site.

Too good to leave out

(Maybe not all ... but some of us)
Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary.
We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not try to blame others.

HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT senior citizens who took:

The melody out of music,

The pride out of appearance,

The courtesy out of driving,

The romance out of love,

The commitment out of marriage,

The responsibility out of parenthood,

The togetherness out of the family,

The learning out of education,

The service out of patriotism,

The Golden Rule from rulers,

The nativity scene out of cities,

The civility out of behaviour,

The refinement out of language,

The dedication out of employment,

The prudence out of spending,

The ambition out of achievement or
God out of government and school.

And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with

And, we DO understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have fought and died for our country.

Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts, as they stand at attention , as the Flag passes by in a parade!

I'm the life of the party.....
Even if it lasts until 8 p.m.

I'm very good at opening childproof caps.....
With a hammer.

I'm awake many hours before
my body allows me to get up.

I'm smiling all the time,
because I can't hear a thing you're saying.

I'm sure everything I can't find is
in a safe secure place, somewhere.

I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.

I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life!
Now if I could only remember who sent this to me, I wouldn't send it back to them.
Or, maybe I should send it to all my friends anyway.
They won't remember, even if they did send it.
Spread the laughter
Share the cheer
Let's be happy
While we're here.

Winter on it's way

Sunday, August 24, 2014

We are in for one of the coldest Bank holidays it seems. The old temp is going down to 0C (32F) in the north. It will be a little warmer here in the south but the forecast is for 15 hours of rain tomorrow here.

Just to prove it I saw my first Robin this year but I did not have my camera handy so here is one that I took a while ago.

The first Robin

Have a good day but stay dry tomorrow

    We were not has hot as usual. Here in the high desert we usually have a lot of days over 100 degrees. Only a few days this summer. Not complaining though. The Coopers Hawk has shown up already. A month early. You are so cold already. Oh, I wonder what winter has in store for everyone. emoticon

Little things mean a lot

Friday, August 22, 2014

Yesterday I made one of my set goals, a real land mark.

When I started this journey I set up my 10,000 a day steps and got walking. After a while I got to like it. The goal was set to 12k a day. This went on for a while when I found that I was doing 20K+ a day.

This got me thinking (bad idea that) that an average of 15K would be nice as I really enjoyed walking. As the weight came off I was taking longer walks and the most I did in one day was 33K.

I did have problem mainly with my Pedometer s/ware so I set up an Excel spreadsheet to keep track. I was keeping a running total and as the months past this got up to around 9,000,000. This gave me the idea of going for 10.

The upside is that I got there yesterday but the downside is that it cost me 11 pairs of shoes/ Trainers.

I did feel good to reach the goal but now I have started to cycle I don't get the steps in but you can't do everything.

    That is a lot! I struggle with 10,000. There was a time, I got all the steps in, even in the rain. But now, some days, I barely have 3,000. I think that might be called 'lack of self-discipline' on my part. lol Do you also use a treadmill?

    Wow, you truly have walked a long way. Maybe you should set a goal to walk across your country.

You are super awesome. I too love to walk and cycle.
