Grandgirls! Online School! Cupcakes! FAA! Podcast! 1.4.22

Love this!

I’ve been practicing flying drones with a simulator. It’s way more challenging than I thought it’d be.

It was better weather to fly last night, but who wants to fly in the dark?

I’m thinking about working on the test for the commercial drone license. I think it could be fun. Here is some of the subject matter. It’s a pilot’s license from the FAA for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle


I went to Chamblee today to meet up with the girls. Penelope and all the kids at the mission have started on line school again. Since P and Everly have both had Covid, I’m cautiously optimistic that they have enough immunity to keep it from getting bad if they were ever exposed.

Pretty hefty schedule, although today was lighter.

I’m glad my alma mater is doing this.

It was good to touch base with my friend Tina from NAMB days. She’s helping with food distribution. I have some families that I think could use some groceries.

It took me about the same amount of time to get to Chamblee as to Global Mall.


I find these reports interesting.


I pushed myself to get there early just so I had the tech sussed out and Ashley could get to her staff meeting on time.

Keep going. It’s the key to success.

It’s getting to be that time of year.

I’m becoming more aware of the air space. The ATL has a LOT of air traffic. This is where the mission is in Chamblee.

Started my new year off with a Verbal Surgery BANG! Released “Climb a Cactus.”

Some fun stories.

I would say that Penelope had a very successful first day with the online classes.

We had a snack of rice and beans and also went to El Torrero after school was out.

We made a lot of progress then rested. Penelope and I caught up with the teacher’s Zoom call when we woke up. Then did one more session of work.

I moved her work station to the living room. The teacher said that my signal strength on the Zoom call was bad. Sure enough, it had a weak signal in the kitchen but full blast in the living room where the router is. I’m glad we made the effort to make the Zoom call.

Penelope is super smart.

I enjoyed taking the grandgirls to Plaza Fiesta, although we were disappointed that the playground had been closed.

They really enjoyed the cupcakes.

I’d say this crossed a line.


I thought this was cool.

Picked up checks.

This would drive me nuts. I hope they mow lawns better than this.

Deposited checks. That’s always good.
