After 4 years of University the love of my life, Lisa, graduated recently. She immediately got a job in the finance department of my parent company, making more than I ever made in aviation before this job. She had worked there last year, and they must have liked the fact that she's one of those driven people I read about and see on tv, the type of person that isn't happy unless they are active and productive. In a lot of ways we are very different people ;)

I'll tell you the story of our meeting one day soon. And the story of my drive from Stony Rapids, SK to Goderich, ON. But not today. Today we are driving up north to visit some friends we haven't seen in a long time.

Anyhoo, these are pics taken when she convocated. Here she is with her parents.

I'm not sure what the big deal is; when I was a teenager I'm sure I convocated at least 6 times a day and I didn't get to go on stage for any of it. Hmm, I should get a more modern dictionary than the one from 1490 I have sitting by my computer desk. I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of newfangled words.

Oh, where am I? I wasn't there, I was flying. Yeah, I know. I don't know if there is a smiley-face icon for the act of missing roughly 50% of the important moments in my loved one's lives, but if there was I'd post it here.

I rode in the back of our jet for the first time a couple of days ago, so tomorrow's post will be all about that.

Lisa is clearly not only beautiful but also competent and results oriented. Way to choose a wonderful mate.

Lisa might be attracted to you because you look a lot like her Father! I think you make a nice looking couple. Keep up the blog, I really enjoy it, especially your neat videos.

no - I think her father's got more hair - at least on his head.

You're living proof that good looking women dig pilots :)

Ha-ha-ha. I thought the same thing as x-av8r, well in my case I thought, "of course he said yes."
