To those who asked..no, after having had children the decision was made (my decision..husband gladly agreed) that being here for the kids was more important that my flying. I would have had to rent a craft in any case and that is expensive when you are a struggling young and growing family. Now I would have to, of course, have a new medical for it, and take a refresher course and show I can still do it. Too expensive altogether now. However I do have friends who do so and have invited me to go along. The invitations have been turned down by and large because I don't want to be hit with the "fever" again. Ex-pen-sive.
This is not a good picture as his head is in the flowers and the angle is poor BUT here he is..a good reminder of the hot days of summer.
