'Memories' made .......this weekend.........thanks to those who serve.........♥


I usually have a rather elaborate 'Memorial day' post.....but this holiday weekend..........we got lucky.......and while..we continue.........to memorialize ....those.........men and women....who fought..and died.......those who continue to serve...........away from home....!!!!and while we are home..............we choose to celebrate our 'holiday' weekends......with family and friends.........bought and paid for by those we celebrate this weekend in particular.......we were able to create 'Memories' that we can only hope will be memorialized in the heart and memories of our granddaughters.......Kaitlin and Jasmine..................♥♥♥♥♥♥..........Below is a 'simple' picture........that I posted on my fb page..........yes....Memorial day  if over......but the loss felt continues..........so please............lets again thank those who pay and continue to do so.........that we can make real memories.........every day of our lives .............!!!.




As this is a holiday weekend here in the States....Monday being "Memorial day"......we "Honor".. Those who have served their country......and it matters NOT....the country ... Men and woman who serve....we salute ALL...!!!! Especially those who have passed on... Her Grandfather passed away..but he still 'lives'.....and walks his beautiful Granddaughter down the isle .. On her Wedding day ...his "Gold Wings".....they are a symbol of his service.....symbol of love for "COUNTRY". But Today they shine the brightest as they light her way down the isle... His "Love"....shining throw his "Golden wings".....!!!!

Two days ago........I was pulling up one of new and Awesome airport web cams at Osaka airport.... http://airportwebcams.net/osaka-itami-airport-webcam/

you can see the planes land and take off.......as the camera is far enough away..to see the whole sequence.........and like me with my late nights...it's day time there..so...I can feed my Aviation hunger......with an all night snack if I want......... 

BUT ...day before yesterday I happened on another 'airport' web  cam......and OMG......its of Princess Juliann airport at St. Maarten...and if can catch a 'heavy' or a 'prop' pass.......right there with a great vantage point...the camera refreshes every 5 seconds...so it can be a bit......broke up.....But hey.....better than nothing...and rates a 4 of 5 possible 'Gold Stars'....in my book.........here's is the link.......

"Well, when I saw the 330 fly low over my house, I was shocked! We hardly ever get that in YOW!
So, I drove to the airport to see it close.
I was in the airport when I took the photos of the 330...right next to the 767, and a 320!
Fun!!!!
I even took video if the 330 taking off!
There were two older men watching as I was. They started chatting with me and were surprised when I started talking! I think I knew more than they expected! LOL!"
Xo
Lots of love!
GG..........well  Lots of Love to you too.......


....Like 2 lover's.....after sneaking a "Kiss"......Mmmm.......

      ______________________________
Please let us take a moment to say a prayer......This is a story about one of our own. This is the story of the loss of an aviator....John Davies....who  happily gave his time and his passion to aviation enterprises throughout the Ottawa area. As well as Vintage Wings of Canada, John worked with the Canadian Aviation Historical Society, the Ottawa International Airport Watch, Airliners.net and other organizations whose mandate is to share the culture of aviation. And John was the ultimate sharer.....darling you will be missed......by all of us.....!!.

There is one thing that binds all men and women who I call aviators. Whether you are a cocky jet fighter pilot or a low and slow-flying ultralight farmer; an aviation writer or aviation photographer; an actual 20,000 hour four-stripe airline captain or a basement dwelling nerd on FlightSim, hand flying a 747 Combi from San Francisco to Kuala Lumpur in real time, while your mother makes you pizza pockets; whether you are a rivet-counter or a plane-spotter; a fixer, builder, flyer, lover, reader, writer, researcher, collector or marshaller—you are an aviator and we, every one of us, all share one thing in common—a passion for flight in one of its forms or another. You, me, that slightly weird guy with two radio scanners slung like six-guns, that astronaut who made our whole country proud—we are, have always been, will always be,... aviators. Those actual flying aviators (let’s call them pilots) who do not understand or recognize this common DNA are missing the true greatness of aviation. Somewhere far back in our individual stories and our collective souls, we had a moment when this passion was ignited. And from that day onward, it burned in different ways for each of us......
http://www.vintagewings.ca/VintageNews/Stories/tabid/116/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/467/language/en-CA/The-Gentle-Aviator.aspx


This past year, John Davies was accorded honours from the volunteer group known as Ottawa Airport Watch for more than 10,000 hours of volunteering for the organization. That is the equivalent of working 40 hours a week, 50 weeks a year for five years. That is an incredible commitment, offered by John Davies quietly and without demands. He was a man of exceptional generosity. Here we see him standing on a snow bank (the fence top is 10 feet high) this year during one of Ottawa’s most difficult and cold winters on record. John was there almost daily, rain or shine, -30ºC or +30ºC to photograph the comings and goings of one of the world’s best run airports.

There is an old saying: “When God shuts the door, he opens a little window.” One thing I know for certain—something that comforts me a little—is that, for every aviator lost, another is born. John... you are forever gentle in our hearts..




Good Night...Friends.......and Aviators.............Sleep tight......
