AOB – August 2018

So we said goodbye to Alex on 12 August and headed for Walla Walla – then on thrugh Pendelton to The Dalles; from there south to Bend of two nights and now we are in Florence, Oregon on the Pacific coast.

Miss the little guy – I enjoyed spending time with him. These are pictures from the Sandpoint fly-in on Saturday 11th. There was a Kodiak on the ramp and a few of the fold from Quest – Alex had made a good impression.


The drive through the Pacific North West is interesting – such diverse scenery and such a mix of prosperity and struggle.

Overnight Saudi Arabia escalated a diplomatic row with Canada. The KSA expelled the Canadian ambassador while accusing Canada or meddling in the KSA’s internal affairs.

Which really is the pop calling the kettle black: let’s start with interference in Qatar, Yemen, Bahrain; mosque funding, lobbying against Qatar WC, govt sanctioned TV cloning….

But most offensive of all was a tweet of an Air Canada jet flying towards Toronto’s CN tower: subsequently deleted it was clearly deliberate, provocative and offensive.
