paper planes

yer, i know, playing with words.

Today was one of the most interesting. Friend of mine has a son - 8 year old.

Both parents working separate shifts (i.e. 24 hours).

Almost DINKUM  aussies (i.e. double income, no kids, unbelievable mortgage) ..

But yep, there's an 8 year  old trying to understand where he stands - or will stand - in the Australian landscape.

We made paper aeroplanes out of A4 paper .. and some of them 'flew'

One of these days - i hope he will remember that 'flight'  ...

or the cosmos - is not limited to -ancient teaching .. this point - the boy has no concept of Werner Von Braun. Each "innocent" child has to discover his, or her, future.

As, now, myself, continue to discover many concepts that i did not know

Yer, well, sometimes i get bored.

BTW have just purchased another RC (radio controlled) helicopter. Yer, i know, some people never learn.

Also an RC glider with an engine of some sort. Both should arrive this coming Thursday - the day i go to get more teeth removed. Lose some, win some.
