   I guess it is logical.  As I grow weaker, less able to do things in daily life, in my dreams, I grow bolder stronger, more capable.

   Today I lay down exhausted...two minutes later I woke up completely unaware of where I was.  Then as soon as I got oriented and began to nap I had a dream.

I was flying my little Ercoupe, a two place plane I used to fly, but which I sold (gave away for a thousand dollars) twenty years ago.  In my dream I  chose to land off field, in the parking lot a university in the mountains.  (what could that be?)  Without checking with anybody I left it there for five days, taking the parking spots for three cars.

When I went back, I taxied to the gate where the parking lot attendant wanted to charge me for leaving my airplane there.  I didn't think he should charge, it's having been such a remarkable feat of piloting.  But he wanted $105.  I argued and negotiated and only got him down to one hunderd.  But by then I realized that he had a point. I paid.

But I couldn't taxi through the gate which was less than thirty feet wide.  So, get this, I picked up the plane, which in real life would weigh over a thousand pounds, and carried it sideways thrugh the gate.  Then I had to carry is sideways down the driveway to the road where I could take off.

Then I made some approaches to an airport that I once dreamed up, years ago.  So my dreams linked one to another years apart. Anyway my flying was sensational.

I like dreams like that.

Dreams about flying are supposed to be really GOOD ones!  Glad you enjoyed it!

Not only a remarkable feat of piloting landing in the parking lot, but an even more remarkable feat getting out again!  Can't help but wonder what you were doing during the five days the plane sat there?

A really nice dream, but that intro has me bothered. Sounds a lot like a drug interaction. Do tell the medicos -- I suspect you need to adjust either the dosage or when one of your maintenance drugs are taken...
