    I had court this afternoon in Palatka, so after we were finished I drove over to the Airport at St. Augustine for a little practice. I first met with Mark Strother, the chief pilot for Florida Flyers, and after we had solved the world's problems, I went over to the hangar and got the plane out. I flew over to 28J, Kay Larkin Airport at Palatka, Florida, and let the autopilot fly the GPS Runway 9 approach. I flew it down to 350 feet, then broke it off, and came back to St. Augustine. On the way back there was a NetJet Cessna Citation that was on an extended left base as I was approaching on a right base, so the tower asked me to extend and come in behind the Citation. Smooth landing - - as they are when no one is there to witness it! Beautiful night.

      I had to file a federal habaes petition in Ocala, Florida today, so that was a good reason to take the plane out of the hangar again . . . my good friend Wayne Henderson agreed to come with me. What had promised to be a calm day turned into a bumpy, gusty arrival and I guess this was a cross wind . . . This video probably should be erased, but I have no pride. We made it down in one piece. Because we did not need gas, we could not use the crew car at the FBO, but they were willing to rent us a car, a sharp, black Cadillac DTS. In Ocala at the federal courthouse i saw Jim Leanhart, Court Operations Supervisor in the Orlando Federal Courthouse. I had not seen Jim in several years, so I spent some time catching up. After filing the paperwork we had lunch at Harry's Seafood Bar and Grill, a New Orleans style place that served some really good shrimp and grits and red beans and rice. The return trip was slightly eventful. We lost the vacuum pump and the DG and attitude indicator were gone. But we were in clear skies and unlimited visibillity so it was only a nuisance, not a problem. On return there was a direct cross wind on Runway 13 so they were using Runway 6, 2,700 feet long, 60 feet wide. Wayne said I used too much runway, but it was okay because I did not use more than we had at our disposal . . .

        After a beautiful late afternoon early evening flight out of the St. Augustine, Florida airport, this was the very last of the drive home. A moody, bluesy, film noirish ride. October 1, 2011

            October 1, 2011 in North Florida was a beautiful early Fall day, cool and sunny. I flew over to Palatka from St. Augustine and did the RNAV approach to Runway 27. After I landed the skydiving plane took off right behind me to drop a group of skydivers. I turned right around and took off from Runway 35 which I saw the wind favored. The take off roll wasn't very straight - I reached down to make a belated adjustment to the trim and looked away from the runway. Not very smart. But I got straightened out. On the departure you can see me approaching the Georgia Pacific paper mill - which has been operating since 1947. The plane is a Cessna 182, the pilot is William Mallory Kent Billy Graham was baptized and ordained in Palatka.

                I traveled to Brewton, Alabama August 5, 2011 to visit three clients at Century Correctional Institution, in Century, Florida. Brewton is a wonderful small town that has been named one of the 100 best small towns in the United States to live in. The FBO at Brewton (airport code 12J) is operated by Mr. Freddie McCall. Mr. McCall runs an aviation business, Aviation Specialists, LLC. He and his wife are the most gracious hosts one could ever find. They are simply wonderful people. This is a video clip of my landing runway 24 at Brewton about Noon, August 5, 2011. The Navy uses Brewton Municipal Airport for practice and training. Two young naval aviators in their T6 were doing touch and goes when I arrived and they very kindly broke off to allow me to land.

                  We departed from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. Heading west, we passed through Crow's Nest Pass. At Sparwood, we turned north up the Elk Valley. Reaching the Kananaskis Lakes, we followed the Spray Trail to the Spray Lakes Reservoir. We joined the VFR route to the east in Banff, exiting the mountains and returning home. There was moderate turbulence in the last third of the northbound route. We flew northbound at 8500 feet, and returned at 7500 feet. The whole trip lasted a little under 3 hours.

                      I had some business to take care of in Melbourne, Florida and Caroline came with me. It was a hot June afternoon (2011). We filed an IFR flight plan and departed from Jacksonville's Craig Airport for the 1 hour plus flight to Melbourne. I have to confess to the first bounced landing I have ever had with Caroline in the plane! But she was sweet about it and claimed to have not thought anything of it. That is love talking.
