Pinky's Eagle has Landed

                               Hagar and Theon

As a prospective mum you endure nine long months of nausea, a leaking bladder and general discomfit. This is followed by at least five years of physical exhaustion chasing after an errant toddler whilst trying your hardest to teach them about the imminent perils of the big wide world. The middle years are a mild reprieve but then come the bitter-sweet agonies of the teenage years.

At some point you have to dust off your hands and grant the human being you have created the freedom to follow their own dreams. It’s challenging, but that moment inevitably arrives and today was a perfect example of allowing a chick to literally fly from the nest.

After a build-up of near on two weeks, twenty year old Hagar finally went through with his adventurous scheme to parachute from a plane. The Beavis to his Butt-Head in this grand folly was his long term buddy, twenty-one year old Theon (who is one of the nicest young men you could ever meet).

Theon’s Mum Denise and his Auntie Christine, were down at the beach cheering the boys on, as were Hagar’s girlfriend Meggles, Hagar’s dad Ralphie, and big brother Thaddeus.

The entire experience was too mind-numbingly terrifying for me to relate so I hope you will click on the link below to watch the (very brief) documentary Scotto has kindly created for your enjoyment. :))

Also, thanks to Chelsea from Longboard’s Bar and Grill for being such a good sport!
