Who’s going to fly you home?

I just hope no one takes this as bad taste, given where the death happened, but seriously, with what his extra challenge in life was,  its just all too apt.

Yesterday was the day, in an ideal world, I would have been in Pine Bush, New York, for their UFO based celebration event. Its fair to say that even if my brain hadnt gone faulty a couple of months ago, I probably wouldnt have got there this year. Assuming that I’m still permitted to fly to the US post neurologist visit next month, it might remain on the calendar for next year, and being realistic, it doesnt look like I will need to book time off work by then. Money might be more of an issue, so if a passing alien has a space in a flying saucer heading to the event then, yes, I’d love to hitch a ride! Hey, having to wear (temporary, or permanent) a full body alien body suit would only be seen as a bonus. But yes, if I do it, regardless of any spacecraft, a really good alien bodysuit will be an absolute must!

Therefore there was a certain amount of irony this morning when I got up, switched on the laptop to discover that one of the most famous Ufologist’s, Stanton Friedman had passed away yesterday at the age of 84. Why the earlier comment? Well, he passed away at Toronto Airport, on his way home from giving a talk. No, he was flying on a standard plane, honest he was!

Never heard of him? Well, in all likelihood, without him, we would never have had the theory of the Roswell incident, back in 1947, when of course its supposed an Alien space craft crashed near Roswell, New Mexico, and the US Government tried to cover it all up. Even today, over 70 years on, the whole area is shrouded in secrecy. No, I wasnt on that craft, but if, according to Eric at least, any of my relatives were, is an entirely different matter, lol! In truth, I doubt we will ever know if they did, or didnt, lets face it.

He worked on classified projects for many years, so if anyone knew, or suspected it was true, he’d be high on the list of candidates.

So RIP Mr Friedman, probably the closest we’ve ever coming to discovering more about the Roswell Incident, and now probably ever will.

I know, the song is about driving home, not flying, but it still rhymes. The other thought I had, looking at the video, at the end of Mental Health Awareness week, is just how apt it is for that too.

A robotunit in Boston, last part

Well it isnt quite all over, but its not far off it.  I’m sort of hoping to get a last quick dash into the city in tomorrow, but a lot will depend on what time I’m being picked up to go to the airport on whether thats practical or not. Fingers crossed, but will have to wait and see how packing etc, goes for that.

Wednesday, I got taken down to Falmouth on the Cape, the weather was wonderful, so was lunch, eaten with a fantastic view out over a very calm sea. Fantastic area, and look forward to getting back there, and far sooner than the gap leading to this visit to the area.

Yes, yesterday was the big event, the getting together of 3 ‘Gardeners’ and what a fantastic day it was. So alright, I knew Kate already, but this was the magical day that both of us got to meet James for the first time. He looked just like I expected him to, but thats hardly surprising, I’d seen a picture of him beforehand lol! An absolute gentleman, lovely to know, and we went to lunch, and the aquarium together, and I have the  picture to prove it!

After that we teamed up with Kate, and did the ‘Duck tour’ of Boston, an entertaining and informative trip, in wonderful company. Then dinner, and back, having worn poor Kate out in the process.

Today, Kate and I managed one last trip out, before parting for now, though hopefully her problem with her phone has been sorted out by the time I write this.

Special thanks to her for being such wonderful company this week, and for chauffering me around so much, its so appreciated. Thanks to James for finding me this wonderful, peaceful place to stay, and the books he provided me with.

Next posting will be from England again, not quite sure when I will be straight enough to do something, but suspect it will be the early part of next week. Until then, I leave you with a song from a Boston group, that ties in with what Kate has done for me this week.
