I'm just back from a lovely lunch. Went on an electric bike, ( beloved's cast off, very nice bike, but I do envy her new bike, carbon frame, 12 kg all up). Wall to wall sunshine, superb food, good Bordeaux to drink, very shapely and pleasant waiter. And beloved allowed me to look. And on the way back let the leccy take the strain.

I am very lucky

Weather here yesterday was warm and the sun was shining. . I took an electric powered (vegetarian) glider to the field for some relaxing trundling around in the sky.

After a climb of 15 seconds, it caught a thermal whereupon it instantly soared up to 399ft wink

The thermal activity was good and my glider stayed up there for over an hour. . . . Good game.

Our local farmers can't believe their luck. The barley and wheat is coming in big time, hay everywhere, no rain for at least 10 days, no storms.

30° plus every day, so the trundle of harvesters, and all the rest of the kit, is the wake up call of a morning, at first light.

Mind, back to earth, afternoon walk with the dogs. A neighbour, John-Giles, sitting on the steps to his house, taking the air and river, views me in my Michael Portillo like finery.

"Whats up" he says, " you normally look like a tramp" Cheers John-Giles.

Make hay while the sun shines is the old saying, mind you it is nice to fly models when the sun shines as well. John.

A neighbor of mine used to have combine harvesters in his working days and he never stops telling me of the day he harvested a model aircraft. Luckily the metal detectors in the machine did their job and no damage to the machine ensued. The plane was less lucky ending up slightly crushed.

I have been immortalised in paint! Well it is on a toilet wall and will probably get graffitied, but it is the thought that counts. I was flying my Radian down at the park when a painter turned up to paint a mural on the toilets. His brief from the Council was to paint a mural reflecting park activities. He wandered around taking photos of various things and asked if he could take a pic of me flying the Radian to be included in the mural - I figured it would be good PR and told him to go ahead. Came out pretty good and gives me a chuckle every time I see it.
