that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

just because he did


Dan is such an inspiration to me — the fact that I am still in school 4 years later… and he JUST PASSED HIS FLYING EXAM after only 3 months this morning!! Needless to say, we’re all pretty fired up around here for him – and his perma-grin is the best thing ever. I guess he must be safe to ride with, but I am too terrified, I still won’t pester him for a flight for atleast ten years… just kidding.

To pat his own back for him, his instructor said it was the best training session he’s ever had with a up-and-coming pilot. In other words, Dan rock their socks off… both in the flying and the written. Very, very cool. So here are some pictures they took of him in his little ‘copter.

Onwards and UP wards… way to go Maverick! (That’s the only pilot [name] I could think of — aside from U. Mark) Tonight we’re going to celebrate… with a drink and going to the movies. 🙂

  1. way to go Dan!!! We knew you’d be the star in the class. I could ask “So where did you fly to find the snow?….but I know it was probably Malahat Mountain or the Sooke Hills. 😦
    Hope to see you ‘both’ tomorrow.
    xoxo aM
