Aviation Family..........♥

Where to begin…..OMG, this past weekend flying to Ottawa to visit GG, her family, and Bas Man…..whom I had not met yet……Lets just say that the ‘Aviation Appreciation Society’..Worldwide…..is very much alive and kicking….up ‘RUNWAY’ dust……..!!!......with so much room for future visits….ya know as I look back….to begin…..with was me flying to Ottawa for the first time Feb,2012……meeting GG for the first time, her Beautiful family, omg those ‘badeggs’ of hers that I fell in love with even before we met…..GG’s wonderful husband…….we all hit it off so well, …..back then…..remembering the many ‘post’s …..after that visit GG flew here to Louisiana…that June, 2012….to visit me and meet my family, and my girlfriends(YES DAVE AT THAT TIME I STILL HAD A FEW ‘FRIENDS’ LEFT;)…..….Mr. Duck, was the cook all week……LOL>……and we sure did eat GOOD…drink GOOD and who can forget the “Drive thru” Daiquiri shop..LOL…..then flash forward to last November,2013 Dave and LuLuBell fly here to Louisiana..from the UK.. and there we met for the first time,..after landing…..and losing the parking ticket LOL…..we drank a bottle of champagne in the…car before even leaving the parking garage…..and …with those sexy british accents…..every one fell in love with them…..especially Lu Lu when she spoke……they were here 2 weeks…and omg….it was the BEST……!!!!!When Bas Man…..with his engineering studies, he needed to visit a Country that spoke his second language (Bas if I am getting these details wrong, please correct me)……choice…I wanted so badly to be able to find him a place here for the 10 weeks…..Thats when GG…..found just that for him……so he flew to Ottawa, Canada….where he has lived for the past 9 weeks…he flies home this Saturday, Nov. 8th………but he has had nothing short of a WORLDWIND…..time his past 9 weeks….traveling to many places….meeting the lovely Canadian people…..and of Course the Care that GG, and her family…….to watch over Bas…..has given me hope…..that yes, there are many people out there, who really do give a SHIT………and don’t care about glory…or bragging rights……that just doing something for someone else…is its own…..payment…..!!!!!!!!....So the idea for me  to fly to Canada came into play…..to again visit GG and her family……but to meet Bas Man for the first time……and OMG……What a Lovely, Sweet Man he is…..and the three of us together……was pure MAGIC……the nights sitting in my hotel room with curtains spread open ……(Headquarters)…..omg LOL>..with the ATC on…..we saw some F*cking Awesome…..Aviation traffic….that of which I will go into more detail…in coming ‘posts’…….we had the best time….it was beyond……that…….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....we were the perfect Aviation Geek ‘STORM’…….the weekend…was Fabulous….as I said I will go into MUCH more detail……soon……I’ve got 4000 pics…and in no order…so I need to go through…..and chronologically go through them……(quit snickering…GG, Bas;)…I flew back home day before yesterday…..and I am still riding so high…….it was Magical……This Saturday Bas flies back to his home base ……Amsterdam….his 10 weeks done, but oh, the places he’s seen….and memories made…….Ahead of time I want to wish Bas a Safe flight home……please send me your flt info…so I can track…..so we all can track…….It was a complete pleasure to meet you……and my time with GG and her lovely family……is burned in my heart….as well, ……as I see it…….the Sky is the limit…..and it may be that GG and I make the track across the ‘POND’…….and visit Dave and Lu Lu Bell’s Sky……sounds like a good pre emptive strike…
Another point…I want to make as well, is the MissTWA family……all those who we’ve come to know and love…..through the years here…..some have left us……some have stayed, and to those who just pass through……the ‘Welcome’ mat is always ready for a visit…..and no need for comments……hoping at least I brought you a smile…..all of you I appreciate very much……afterall …..ITS ABOUT THE PLANES ‘’STUPID’’…..;)…I love you all…….My Aviation family…..here at my humble……Misstwa blog……especially those who just pass through during the night ………you can’t escape ….Ha Ha…..So many more visits…..I’ll leave just this one ‘Selfie’…….we took on Monday…..at the cafa at YOW……….a couple of hours before I took off……for now…..there will be several ‘posts’…..of this last weekend……’IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES……AND IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES’……….

Saturday? Not too long ago, I asked you what you're first impressions were of Canada. I hope that these 10 weeks will be the FIRST of many visits here.

Every now and then, when no one's looking,face due West, and think of us. We'll be thinking of you. :)

Good grief! Poetic indeed, who'd 've thunk it!

I think this post typifies exactly what air travel was invented for - friends across the globe....

Hello Dave.......!!!!!!!!!!

Love ya.....tell Lu Lu Bell, hello and we all send her our ♥

Bas said...

Dave that is very well put! So true :)

Indeed Paul Daniel. I'll be back one day, Canada has been treating me really well. I enjoy the people here. I had so much fun and last weekend was really the icing on the cake. I like the way you wrote about it Julie, nice!

We were watching touch-and-go's by a First Air 737...now that is what we call EPIC, folks!

I'll be thinking a lot of Canada, probably going to miss it! It's been so much fun with Giulia, Mike and the kids. Can't thank them enough! Being at the fence with 'Agent 109'...that FENCE! Heck, they even opened it when we were all there LOL!

Ready to go home, all my stuff is packed. New experiences and I can't believe it either Dan, 10 weeks already...

Ciao for now!

I'll try that TRACKING thing; I'm new to that.

P.S.

672? That was my roof light #,
when I drove for YELLOW CAB.
I was just a few years older than
you.

Good Omen!


P.P.S.

Thank you, Julie!

Giulia said...

Well, Bas is on his way to Montreal. We dropped him off just now at the train station. Hey, it finally started snowing for him! Just in time for his departure.



...I'm feel pretty teary.

My heart is hurting that I had to say two goodbyes in less than a week. I miss my friends.

The lovely memories are tucked away inside and they will keep me going until next time. And there WILL be a next time.

With all of you.

That means ALL of you.

Sigh.

P.S. Jules, you know I kid you a lot that you never write on your blog. Well, you outdid yourself this time. I had a good cry. ((HUGS))
