the border caper

After an evening of reading about, talking about and looking at planes it was a thrill today to find books and magazine information on the Spitfire aircraft. But then I am getting ahead of myself. (Those of you who have known me for any length of time, recall my fascination of aircraft and how I had model aircraft hanging from the ceiling of my sun room.) =^+^+

May 30th. Eartha and Xsa decide on taking one of their “hit the road” capers. Point the car and head out. The only for sure, is that we are going to have a day of adventure. Eartha’s opening greeting was .. “just in case, I’ve brought my passport” Not to be left out, I immediately went to collect mine and off we drove.

Knowing chances were slim to none, we headed for the Canadian American border. What the hay, the day was sunny, the air was cool, refreshing and we were on the run from total boredom. YES we did, we drove to the border and headed across the beckoning empty bridge. We had a delightful meeting with the “border staff” on the American side. Of course, we were turned around, but it was a charming exchange.. we were both very impressed …and pleased.

As Canadians, we have to truthfully say, that the border staff at our own border station, was very dry, and lacked the social “exchange” we had received by the American personnel. Never-the-less it did not dampen our mood.

I also found a book on the Mosquito.. hard cover.,

There was such a sense of adventure and absolute delight that we were enjoying a day on the road. The landscapes were bountiful, and full of charming buildings, farms, newly planted fields, and fresh new growth on saplings and trees along the roads we were traveling.

We ate in Iroquois, the restaurant we wanted was not going to open till 4. Not to be deterred, we ate, freshly made sandwiches with big round delicious radishes. Everything is exciting when you are on a “journey” The books, were a true find. Sitting free for the taking along the road we were traveling. (a back road, taken on a whim )

Rather than thinking “I have to..” think “ok, let’s do this!” When you procrastinate and put things off until later, you will make things harder than they need to be. Get up and do it now.

I hope you will take the time to watch these amazing documentary videos from the Military Aviation museum We had a totally dreamy day. It was full of new discoveries, wonderful conversation, new encounters, and a purely “in the moment” day of activity.

There were other “finds” that will be unveiled over time.

June 1st. Day of Peace. Harmony brings us Peace.

  1. I hadn’t been aware of your fascination with these aircraft. Sounds like a fun outing. Oh I miss going to restaurants!

    • a secret I’ve harboured over the years,, not everyone is interested, seldom share, but the finds were just too much.. =^_^=.. yes I miss eating out too. We got our sandwiches in a big food store, that has a deli section.. they were fresh and enjoyed, … we sat in the car with the doors open to the fresh air and the day… and chomped down. My friend and I go back a long way, it was nice to sit in quiet companionship… and enjoy sharing.
