April 16 – Rain Day in Luskintyre
Saturday dawned dull and drizzling with the rain increasing as the day progressed.We spent the day watching videos, organizing our washing and drying, drinking copious amounts of coffee and reading books.

Tiger squeeze (PS love CYA)
I couldn’t believe that Kev W had pushed his million dollar chopper aside so that we could squeeze the Stinson in out of the rain. There were at least 3 other Tigers in there already.It allowed Kevin to spend quite a few hours cleaning the Stinson in the luxury of the hangar.
The evening meal was a combined effort by Frank, Vince, Geoff and Kevin W resulting in a lovely chicken, mashed potato, rice, vegetables and casserole mix.Wine, both red and wine flowed freely and the meal and conversation was all very much enjoyed until bedtime.
