Oh, the sky is a lot bigger than the road, so I have time to take selfies from my good side. Here are me and Cassie over Crystal River as proof:

Hi Steph,                        14 June 2018

Best Always, Love,

Hi Christine,

It’s a Rans S-20 Raven I built. I am in fact just finishing it’s first annual condition inspection right now. I’m sitting in the hangar next to it cooling off after reinstalling the cowl. Here I am doing the compression check:



This is the finished product:



It’s the best flying plane I’ve ever built. Unfortunately I built it in partnership with a friend and he bought me out. I still do the work for him and sometimes get temporary custody. I hope to be flying it this weekend.

Do you fly?

By the way, when I came out to a friend of mine he texted me with, “I am so envious! Do you know how badass the title “Aviatrix” is?

So I’m not just a Fly Girl, I’m a BAA: Bad Ass Aviatrix.

Oh, sorry Kathy. Another thread highjack...

OK Danielle,                   14 June 2018

I caught you young lady; I detect something fishy is Denmark; Alaska, aka "The North Pole," doesn't have green stuff a couple of months ago. My news source, CNN, says it is still covered in glaciers and other ice forms. Green won't appear until moss forms on the north side of the glaciers.

So what have you to say for yourself for spoofing us gringos down here in the original 58 states? By the way, I've been to all but 57.

You should be ashamed of yourself for trying to fool this old biddy way down here in Tejas.

Best Always, Love and try to stay warm,
Christine

PS:

That looks like Bazooka Bubble Gum?????

@christinej78 ...   the trees you see are Evergreen Trees, meaning that they stay green all year long. Duh !!! 
Not Bazooka bubble gum, it is Double Bubble brand bubble gum.   As the shortest day of the year approaches where I live we have more than 22 hours of sun-up daylight and a  less than 2 hours of twilight... never gets dark.  The weather turned warmer like someone throwing a switch.
***edit/correction:   > Longest Day of the Year <
Thanks for your comment, I enjoy exchanging messages with and fooling "old biddys" especially in "Tejas"
Hugs,
Danielle

Aaahh....Danielle...is the high latitude and perpetual daylight getting to you? With 22 hours of sunlight, I’m sure you intended to say the longest day of the year not the shortest. It will be the shortest day for me, down here in n the underside of the globe.

Hugs,
Jayne

It may have also been a lack of oxygen after blowing that giant bubble gum bubble, leaving you light headed.

I’m just messing with you.

Hi Steph,                     14 June 2018

Gave it up; don't trust myself these days. I would if I had someone along that could fly and was familiar with the type. I have a hard time trusting myself walking these days; fall asleep quite easily and when I wake I haven't a clue how or where I got myself to. I actually have to go back to sleep so I can dream my way home. Funny what getting old does to a young gal; especially one going through puberty. What am I going to do when I have my first period?

Just saying that reminded me of my younger sister's first period. I was downstairs in the living room and unbeknownst to me, she was in the WC (Water Closet) taking a leak (I presume). All of a sudden there was a blood curdling scream from upstairs. My mom rushed to her aid, stayed a bit calming her down then came downstairs and informed me as to what happened. That was about 64 years ago and she still hasn't gotten over it. Maybe I should stop laughing about it when she's around. The good thing is we haven't seen each other in 12 years so that's one positive to our relationship; the second is she hasn't a clue she now has a sister. When she does find out I'm sure it will bust her balls... or whatever she has.

I'm assuming that's an air-park where you live. That is having your cake and eating it too. Living the dream.

The photo of you working on the plane would make a great avatar; you look Sexy, Hot and BA simultaneously.

Best Always, Love,
Christine

My favorite plane is the Cessna T-310 R. High workload, fast, heavy (smooth in rough air) and sexy.

I was rummaging through old photos for something unrelated and came across my baby pictures.  Just for giggles, I thought I'd post one.


My mother is 29 in that photo.  The hairline looks familiar.  Add male pattern baldness and my hair never had a chance!

My wife and I just got home from a beach party with six other trans women and one other spouse.  We rounded up enough driftwood for a small beach fire and some folks roasted marshmallows.  We had potato salad and went across the parking lot for ice cream.  Watched the tide com in about a quarter of a mile on the sandy beach. 

A nice relaxed evening, and a rare opportunity for some of the part-time ladies to get out as themselves.  No pics, because some of the ladies are a bit camera shy.

  Hi Kathy,

  How do you all enjoy going to the beach in those heavy clothes. Did you have to get out the dog sleds to get through that frozen wasteland? I've see tide affect the ice on the shore. It creates a slippery slope that is hard to climb back up. How do you handle that? Do you just wait until high tide to even it back up?

Hugs,
  Laurie

Speaking of a slippery slope, Laurie, just keep that up and we'll put you in our other refrigerator.  It is 3000 miles wide and gets down to -40.  :P

OK now ladies, either I need some more coffee this morning to understand all that is being stated and what is going on with the last 3 reply comments .... or perhaps I should just crawl back under the nearest rock and go back to sleep... it is still early here.... not even 6:30am yet... so I just may do that, I was up very late last night.

Anyway it sounds like you three know the inside story and are having great fun at each other's expense  :) ::).... 
Even though it is a mystery to me and perhaps to others it is very nice to see that kind of fun comradeship.... you sound like very happy girls with your exchange of comments.

Oh my gosh! Swimsuit?! I did that for the first time ever yesterday (see my thread). How cool you did too!

The water was probably waayy too cold for you, the the Florida Ocean was lovely and warm and I went in up to my neck. What I noticed immediately, and almost shockingly, is how different being submerged feels with shaved legs!

No such luck.  While the person with the lorry exaggerates how cold it gets here in the summer, it was a cloudy day and definitely not warm enough to go in the water.   So no swimsuits in evidence.  Some sweaters and jackets, though.  If it had been warm enough for swimsuits, there would have been a lot of people on the beach, and me + swimsuits + other people just don't mix!

On a sunny day, the incoming tide over the warm sand would have been warm enough to wade in, but not nearly deep enough to swim in unless you went out half a mile or more.  With a wide, shallow slope to the beach and a tide that has a range of 50 feet, you have to walk briskly to keep ahead of the incoming tide.

Swimsuit. Oh soon I hope but not there yet. I’ll find one I like one of these days. Not a fan of pools so I’m waiting for the lake temperature to come up a bit more.
