Where do I begin with today’s letter? I think I’ll turn the sequence around… I’ll begin with helicopters. Why helicopters? Because there’s an old saying… if you have jet-fuel in your veins it never leaves. Yes, I spent years in the South African Air Force. The last few years as a chopper flight engineer. (I’ve written about here and here.)
Chopper flying is addictive. You get a buzz from it that you can’t get off fixed wing flying. Especially operational military flying. Imagine mountain
frying* sorry, flying in the snow or sea rescue in a storm or flood relief in the aftermath of a subtropical deluge. You get to earn your keep in those kinds of situations.
OK… enough about flying. Now… for a little help, if you may! Any literary agents or publishers out there… I’d like to make contact, please.
Then, since this April A to Z has begun I’ve made a good few new virtual friends! Hello and welcome to you all… I hope you’ll keep visiting, even after the month goes by. As per usual… thanks to all the regulars as well! Knowing I may be spreading a smile or two every day makes my day somewhat brighter! Thanks!
The photos are copies of originals… authentic, from my flying days. I’m in both photos…
*PS – Thanks to Susan for pointing out my slip of the finger… do read her comments below!! Also, it’s actually quite justified as I pointed out a little error on one of her posts just days ago… justice!!
