OMG, it's a long story bad kitty.  But I'm kind of stuck here, well I like it too.  But before Covid, I was flying back to the states nearly every month.

Nice play, Jennie! 

Pinkie, if you need to fly “back” every month, guess where home is? 
Wow, who pays for those flights? Or you must earn a bundle!

Ha ha ha, yes I do have perks with the travel industry.  My father was a Delta Airline pilot and my mother owns a travel company.  Family benefits come in handy!

What are you doing this weekend?

Pinkie, yesterday was my sister’s wake. Today my wife is working, I need to fix a drawer runner in the kitchen. Sunday am is church, pm is leisure. 

Our national airliner, SAA is bankrupt before Covid because of major corruption. Our bankrupt country is still trying and pumping billions of our taxes into it... 
A lot of travel agency shops are standing empty. Did not survive lockdown. Pilots were on percentage of their income, lower and lower percentages every month. I hope your parents survived?

First, sorry for your loss.  Your sister is in a much better place.  

Second, airlines are just in trouble regardless where you are at.  They are after bail outs there, and the government is taking its time to step.

Thanks. Agreed.

The trouble with SAA airline is that it was bankrupt before Covid. Billions was pumped into it, still bankrupt. Now, after Covid there is NO chance to get a flame in those ashes. Yet government will pump more billions of our taxes in there, just because government decision makes gets free SAA flights as part of their perks.

Thanks Stella. 

Pinkie, I did. I had woodwork at school. But that was 200 years ago.

I have managed to build a small woodworking bench in my garage. My biggest problem is time.  What little free time I have, photography gets, leaving working with wood, which I love to do, very tough. 



Sorry for your loss!

Love woodworking, but like you time is my biggest enemy.  Just not enough of it!  Perhaps when I retire I'll have the time if I don't pick up other hobbies.
