I put together a short video from my flight at the weekend.
Stranger in a strange land

I went to the airport and flew up to Lake Oroville to see it pretty much full. It was getting more turbulent, so I flew back down the other side of Beale Air Force base and on to Auburn to meet Chris and Vic for lunch. Because I was low and in the middle of nowhere, there's no track for me :o(
It was still quite sporty on the way home, and I could probably have landed on one of the East / West taxiways if there hadn't been anybody around :o)
Oh, and Tilly likes the gourmet French squirty cream, if anybody was wondering.

I went to the airport early and flew a couple of Young Eagles...

It was raining, so we went and met Chris and Randy for lunch, then I mostly did dumb paperwork for the afternoon.

John came up, and we went to the airport to meet Don and Matt. Shane and Liza were there with the family, and when everybody had taken off again, we pulled the plane out and went for a short flight - Shane actually landed as we were taxying out.
In the evening, we watched "Violent Night," even though it (like this) is an Xmas movie.

While I'm working, I generally have cup after cup of Lift, and Tilly comes into the kitchen hoping for a treat while I'm boiling the kettle. So this time I give her a baby (cut) carrot, and go on with my day.
A little while later I looked at her, and she had a lump on the side of her face. We went through the usual "don't touch me" thing when there's something I want to look at, and it was a hard lump... I was having visions of getting to take her to the vet and so on. I pressed on it a little harder, and it moved. Moved?
It was a piece of carrot stuck between the top of her teeth and her cheek. It fell down into her mouth, and she ran off happily, as it was free carrot.

It was another crappy day, so we ran Tilly through a game for the Dog Aging Project. Basically it was a test of remembering where the treat was between 3 boxes. Tilly did about as well as you'd expect a random sampling to do... she remembered pretty much none of them. I'm so proud.
