    Default Mile High Club

    Took the kids to the Royal NZ Show yesterday (a bit like the Suffolk show, only smaller) and went for a ride on an old-fashioned ferris wheel (a bit like the London Eye, only this one swayed in the wind). Later on, we went for our first night time trip on the gondola to see the lights.

    As we travelled back down in the darkness, a wicked thought crossed my mind....

    So come on, where else in New Zealand could you, would you or have you had the chance to join the Mile High Club.

    And, no, we didn't

    I think you'd be hard pressed to find that many places high enough to qualify. Perhaps you should put a minimum limit on it of, say, 1000 ft. to get any takers. I had a friend who did it in a airplane once but it wasn't over NZ, I'm afraid.

    We're either a boring lot or we're not telling

    I'm boring , but thinking about it can be fun.

    Don't worry, Dawn, I've had my moments. I'm not quite as boring as you think. Still waters run deep.

    Just have to behave with decorum now I'm a lot older and have adult sons and their feelings to consider.
