Anyway, this is that grim, grey, grotty period (I like it), when we splodge around thinking oh hell – we really have to get the roof mended now.
And then of course, we must Make a Resolution. As urged by magazines, TV programmes and you-can-do-better books.
So I`m taking up Wingwalking.
People often ask, "Where can I WingWalk?", say the professionals of Wingwalk Displays.
I think we can all relate to that… and next time I can tell them!
For not long ago there was talk of this very thing on the radio – recently graduated Nikita Salmon answered a Wingwalkers Wanted ad in the local paper and was soon whizzing round the heavens in Formation Display!
She described her job as the most exciting in the world; as quite an Adventurer myself, I could not forget her words and Now is the Time!
Though not quite as youngfitandbeautiful as Nikita, I certainly meet the criteria for the Individual No-Dancing version (over 16, under 12 stone) and I`m well under the age of doctor`s certificate required (65).
Might need a leg-up to the top wing, perhaps…
But once wedged into the rig, you`ll be taken on a palpitating series of aerobatic manoeuvres - could be low-level flypasts, zoom climbs, 500ft dives…
It`s DAZZLING, HEART-POUNDING and SPECTACULAR!!
Tempted? And for this unforgettable experience, you can even have a video camera on the end of the wing!
Come on down!
