The team is here!

So we are finally all assembled together here in NY!

It was a bit hectic at the end, as Cactus Killer and Silly Squirrel arrived kind of late… as in well after midnight!!!! But all was good… They were just a little tired (and I was too! … still nothing that a bit of sleep can’t fix)…

We drove out to Nesconset where the Big Weasel was waiting, and we shared a welcome drink before heading off to bed at 3:30am!!!!

C’est le jour du grand départ! Nous sommes prêts, les sacs sont prêts aussi …

Comme toujours, j’ai un poids sur le coeur de laisser certaines personnes, pendant que je serai si loin. Mais LA ROUTE M’APPELLE! et c’est plus fort que tout. Tout à l’heure nous serons dans le feu de l’action : pousser, tirer, s’informer, faire la queue … et puis le bonheur d’être dans l’avion … c’est encore entre le rêve et la réalité … et je rêve!

Cactus Killer et Silly Squirrel arrivent !!!

Spring is here…

crocusesThe first crocuses have pushed their way up and the baby squirrels have started to venture out of the nest — that means spring is here. And spring is almost summer, so brings us that much closer to departure day.

Here in NY the weather has finally turned milder and blue skies are back! Yesterday the Big Weasel even ventured out into the garden for the first time since before Halloween! She surveyed the state of the yard, and noted all the new green shoots stretching thru the dark earth toward the sunlight.

In the evening I sat out on the terrace watching the squirrels frolicking around. And today I will go flying for the first time in a long time. Am looking forward to getting back into the cockpit and feeling the freedom of the open skies. It’s been a long hard winter… Welcome Spring!

The Tickets…

We are all very busy with our respective work at the moment, but today Cactus Killer and I took some time out to get their tickets to NY for July. So we now have a definite timeframe! They arrive on 3 July and need to go back on 28 August… and in between we have the time to “get our kicks!”

Departures and Arrivals… hellos and goodbyes… We are so used to this by now… and yet the airport goodbye doesn’t really get easier!

Today Cactus Killer and Silly Squirrel went back to France. They won’t be back here in NY until just before our “grand depart” in July! (Of course we will all be seeing each other in the meantime… in fact, I will be joining them in Paris next week! but the next time I am picking them up at JFK it will be the run-up to departure… and we will all be pretty excited about it… and kind of crazed, too, I imagine)…

Anyway, i imagine that right about now they are somewhere over the Atlantic on their way to Paris. I am thinking of them and wishing them a safe and calm flight (and the chance to get a little sleep on the plane, too!!!!)
