Museum of Flight

Today my sidekick, alias my granddaughter Kadence, and I hit the town delivering fliers for December 5th FREE FLIGHT Event.

First stop--- Museum of flight.  When I told her we were going to the museum, she said, "there's a snake." I told her this museum didn't have snakes. She asked, "Why grandma?" Explain that one to a two-year-old.  Kadence soon learned that planes are equally as fun as the reptiles. We met a wonderful person there who is supporting of our event, too. Thank you Julia!

Intent on Flying. She looked at the Altimeter and said, 
"Look at the clock grandma. At 419 we'll fly into the sky"

Today I'm on my way to Dallas to meet a new friend, Karla Antelli, and attend a party with Richard Branson. I have a Centennial of Woman Pilots event idea. What if Richard filled his Virgin 777 with 300 women in Sydney and took them on a flight around the pattern---Would that count?  I'm going to ask. But, he's not taking the most female friendly airport title from Renton Airport. We'll have to make a new category--- most female friendly airline. Of course he'd love that title.

Enjoy the Journey!
