I sent Vince a text so he could join us and then grabbed my flight bag and headed to the airport. Mary was safe and secure, I had made her breakfast and she took her meds and now was ready to sleep. My Bride had another go round in the hospital this past week and is slowly getting back up to speed. The Migraines are really bad and the search continues to find the remedy.
Vince was already at 08Romeo and he had her cover off. I went through the pre-flight and he performed his own. I listened to him verbalize each step, he's on his way to becoming a pilot. Vince recently started lessons with Mike B. A great teacher, pilot and friend, he'll make sure Vince is safe and pays attention to all the details.

The decision was made to fly to Chester County, KMQS. We would invade the Flying Machine Cafe' for a late breakfast. We departed runway two four and climbed out for 2800. I swapped control with Adam Z and he took us to MQS joining the pattern for runway two niner. I was high and fast turning final so decided to go around for another try. The second time was the charm with a decent landing and taxi to parking across from the terminal.

With full tummies we headed out to 08Romeo. A short pre-flight and fuel sump has us ready to go. No extra flying today since I want to get back home and check on Mary. It's a direct flight to Wings field and Adam takes us there. We swap controls while entering the pattern on a 3 mile 45 for runway two four. I make a nice landing and taxi to the ramp to make the drop.
