~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 This is Bas's comment he left after my 'Thanksgiving' post,......and I just have to put it here.......besides tending to the care and feeding of all those planes landing and taking off......at the YOW, ....those nights at HQ4.....me and GG found out that Bas........has quite the  'Repertoir'..when it comes to sings......the oldies.......!!!!....So when he started sing Johnny Cash songs, or 3 Dog Knight, songs........me and GG head spun around like in the 'Exorsist'......YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING......BAS.......?????!!!!......NOPE----NOT KIDDING...!!!!..our singing was HYSTERICAL..........!!! Bas knew the songs better than us, unfortunately, GG made the mistake of recording us....half light up....NOT PRETTY ....but it did solve the...'Mystery' of all the "GO AROUNDS.................LOL....This is his comment he left....Bas says:

 Happy Thanksgiving! Wishing you, Duck and your family all the best Julie!

Don't forget to smile, it heals ;)

I miss HQ folks...really. I had such a blast! When people ask me, 'how was Canada?' I just don't know where to start!

LOL @ Dave... Now I know... Went there once in Toronto! :D Spicy Turkey Bucket...because it's gotta be spicy!

Almost weekend folks!

Bas

P.S.

''Alligator bait in the Lousisana Bayou. About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Louisiana'' -Jerry Reed.

Had to think of you Julie! Love that song :)

Giulia is rolling her eyes right now, me listening to old people's music again hahaha.

 OMG......Bas Man...I love that song too.......Here ya go.........the video..........."ABOUT 45 MILES SOUTHEAST OF THIBODAUX  LOUISIANA............its a bit long....but so damn Hilarious....!!

Here's another one......Bas Man..........."She got the gold mine, I got the shaft"......LOL




 lets all sing.........and a one and a two............LOL 
 ok,
As usual.........I'm behind....and it has come back to haunt me.........My phone.....crashed and burned........as of now, I have no idea if my pictures or anything for that matter will be saved............trust me...there were several thousand of them...and the ones I'm  most fearful of losing...are of my Ottawa trip....Heavy Sigh.....Thank GG, and Bas......for sending yours to me...so I can.......'post'...!!!.....replacement phone this week, Tuesday....and the closest 'Apple' store is an hour away..course I get to pass by MSY......so not all bad.....
Granny always said....make the best of it, and if not.....a well placed slap....will send your pouting ass straight........ha ha.....

It was so Magical the whole weekend..........GG couldn't be there to pick me up at the airport....it was Halloween......so trick or treat....was game on for those sweet 'Badeggs'...and when I went through 'Customs'.....and this time.......I didn't forget my name or my address....The 'customs' lady did ask me...If I was born in Canada.....I said..yes..........then she says 'Are you a Canadian citizen??"...I said no....as I didn't think I was....she said your ARE a Canadian.....citizen........right at that moment....we smiled at each other......was a split second.....of connection....as she was on to the next person.

so I go collect my suitcase......all the time I can't see Bas or.....GG's Hubby.....I was dying.....its one of those moments....when I was in between worlds.....I'm officially there, but technically was in between worlds so to speak,  but the few minutes for me to get my suitcase, I stopped and Thank God....because I'm the luckiest person in the world right now..........and I'm just a corner or two.....from my Aviation family....

I walked out, and the first thing I saw was  BASMAN...........he's Tall...!!!!.....I got the best hugs, right then and there...from both...it was, like I say several times here........MAGIC......!!!!.
The very same 'MAGIC.......from my first flight 2 yrs earlier to meet GG...there in Ottawa, and when GG flew here....that same year in June...........then when Dave and Lucy flew here...last year and again GG flew here while they were here ...!!!!!
MAGIC..................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
there were NO Awkward moments....it was as if we had been together in the physical realm.....forever!!!


these first slides are of us...in my hotel room.... the "HEADQUARTERS FOUR EVER" affectionately referred to as 'HQ4EVER'.......I say 3 of us.....but GG's husband.........gave us some of the best laughs ......recording...a message for "HQ4....so when someone would call .......his message.....is priceless....Got to find a way to get that recording,  here on the blog...........It's Hysterical........!!!...
 Ha Ha........Well here's the background music to Mike's 'message'.....I actually love this song........♥






Went to dinner that first night.............then after..in hotel room......
we, me Bas and GG.....opened up the curtains......cranked up the Live ATC at the YOW......and we would listen and watch the planes coming and going...took the couch and moved it in front of the huge window............I have to say...I knew me and GG.....were nuts about watching and matching ATC with the planes coming in........but Bas ...was every bit as CRAZED as we are about.....not missing one plane......even if all we saw the lights of one....far off......we were glued to the window......while listening......and getting so damn EXCITED.........when every thing Jived.......!!!!!!!!!!!!...
God those nights were the best....HQ4EVER........BABY..!!!.....then Bas and GG got a little "TESTY" with me...when for just a few damn minutes..I put my live ATC on JFK Tower........Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...needless to say, I didn't do it...........again.......lol....and I'm still having to hear grief over it.....;)...

Damn we didn't take many pics of us in the room...I guess no one wanted to miss out on a plane.....taking off or landing.........the last night there was the best....there was a distinct buzz in the Aviation realm that night at YOW from, HQ4.....we watched a 'First Air'.....737(i think) do 11 touch and go's......OMG....every time it took off..we would yell and scream.....laughing ....out loud....wondering if it was going to again touch or land..........

Only true Aviation Geeks....get this ....it was 'MAGIC' and I shared with 2 wonderful people......!!!..There was also an MD-80 that landed.......which was out of the ordinary.....well it was a Team 'Charter' flight.....another.....jump and down.....laughing......!!!

 and pardon, if my memory does not serve me right...but we also watched the president of France land......We all got picks of his plane when we parked at the airport....the next  the day I flew back........:(
we saw it parked where gov't dignitaries land....That jet..is a Beauty......!!!WOW...what an Absolutely wonderful weekend....from HQ4EVER....!!!......here are some of the slides from HQ4......I want to say his plane is a 777......??!!....♥


Screen shot of 'First Air' Cargo...and the 11 touch-n-goes......I don't know about you.but....that pilot.....has troublo staying in the lines.............
WAY TO GOOOOOOOOOOO..COMRADE.....;)

View from HQ4.....you can see our Beloved FED-EX..757
 sitting
pretty as she does every week.....








Here you can see the MD-80..parked ....it was the night before we saw it land.........
 that it was a team 'charter'..look at that Beauty......
sorry about the quality...
I must have been shakiing from the DT's......o_O.....;)
what a beautiful day .....it was.......♥

The 'Fuel' of choice for Bas Man...........ours was of course, White wine..........yum.....!!!

'View' from HQ4..........♥

Even the weather was 'Magic'.......look at that Sky.........!!!!


I absolutely HATE this pic.......but I've put my pride aside..because this is HQ4.....as seen with the couch, we pulled up to the window Bas on the computer....my dumbass.....pointing......(rolling eyes)....


OMG...."GANGSTA AVIATION".....Would you get a load of this Motley Crew........thats us on the couch facing the Window.......We were so full of ourselves.............I LOVE THIS PIC...........♥



Our 'MAINFRAME''......where anything Aviation related is there.......you just need 10-20 yrs to find...it.......oooopsie.......♣

there's so much more to post.....but I'll stop here for now........the rest I'll post in small....bunches......I'm afraid I've already....gone on too long and the 'Scroll' Police will be on my ass like 'white on rice'............;)

LOL......GIVE IT A REST ...........'SCROLL' POLICE..........;/
