Cargo

A few days ago, I mentioned that we had seen an Antonov transport aircraft on its way to East Midlands airport.  This morning, just before we set out for our walk, another huge cargo plane flew over our house.  This time, it was a Boeing 747 belonging to the American cargo-carrying Kalitta Air.  Another plane full of Christmas pressies for me?
Last evening, Malcolm suddenly noticed the wonderful sunset.  For a few moments, the reddish-orange glow covered everything and made the whole scene very strange indeed.
It's not often we get to see such a richly coloured sunset and we were reminded of the old adage 'Red sky at night, shepherd's delight' and hoped for a nice day to come.  As we set out in the sunshine for our walk this morning, the saying proved completely reliable.
