Last week was the longest 4th of July week in history! It was a great week, but with the 4th falling mid-week the public celebrated from June 29-July 8th! It seemed someone grabbed the fireworks opportunity every night!
Since our building permit is still under review, we took the opportunity to take a mini-cation and do a little research. We located a fly-in Bed & Breakfast in northern Pennsylvania right next to the NY border. Oz’s Homestay is in the middle of no where but they run a sky diving school and have a wonderful 3000 foot grass strip.
We flew in our RV-4. It only took 2 hours to get there from SML. Take a look at the website and you will see the beds that Ash has hand made. He is a native Australian (thus “Oz) and also is a wonderful cook! We picked his brain about the operation. Planning to spend two night and without wheels, we decided to fly somewhere on day 2.
Jack and I flew to Buffalo, NY where Rob and Kathy (Pietenpol buddies) picked us up and we all toured Niagara Falls. I had been there in 1976 but is still always powerfully amazing!
We arrived back safely to a much cooler temperature in Virginia! This week, I have a job interview and we are completing the roof of the shed. We are gathering estimates on excavation, foundation work, and HVAC systems. I am keeping a large easel pad with notes (how like me) to keep up! Jack has it all detailed in a “Project Management” software but it is 135 pages so we haven’t printed it.
Today, I travel to Blacksburg to pick-up Mom and wrestle her to the dentist. Oh, Joy! Stay tuned and stay cool!
