05.17.16 A day at the flying field!

img0017Saturday, May 14, 2016 – Roy went earlier this week with our brother in law, George to the Tangi RC Flyers Association flying field in Hammond, where George is a member. George has been building and flying remote control planes since I was a little girl so I estimate he has about 60 years of experience. He has several planes, they are all magnificent and perfect in detail.

This is George and one of his planes from the day they went together.

When Roy was younger he built and flew his own for several years. His niece’s husband, David, brought them home to do some repairs on them years ago and we’ve never seen them since. I don’t remember any of this but unfortunately Roy does and it still hurts.

He bought a new one a couple of years ago which has traveled with us several thousand miles, boxed up in our closet!! He finally put it together but after so many years of not flying, and wise advice from George and Roy’s cousin Chris Fox, he’s going to put it back in the box for now. He’s asked for a smaller one for Father’s Day so we’ll be smaller plane shopping soon! Once he learns to fly a smaller one well he can start moving back up to the size he really wants to fly.

Here’s the bigger one that lives in our closet!!!

On Saturday the flying association had a WWII flying show which Roy and I went to. It was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed seeing all the planes fly. There is a nice large covered area with tables for people to sit out of the sun. They sold BBQ burgers, chips and soft drinks. I, of course, snapped picture after picture, way more than I am sharing. If you’re a remote control plane enthusiast you will enjoy all the pictures, if not just look at what you want!

We’ll be looking for flying fields when we get back on the road so Roy can practice with his new plane often! I enjoyed watching so it will be something we can do together while traveling!

When we got home, I started feeling terrible, went to bed and have almost been in bed ever since. Slept 15 hours Saturday night and 14 hours Sunday night. I am mostly just worn out and really tired.

Hoping to get better by tomorrow morning when Madisyn’s school Award Celebration will be held, and of course we’ll be attending! Kallie has Jr. High graduation on Wednesday so it’s up early and out two days in a row so Grannie needs her energy!!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
