Fly Away

Today after church we had a luncheon, it was a surprise birthday party for the minister who just turned 50. It was finger food and chocolate birthday cake. With all that has been happening around here I forgot to make something but they announced that there was plenty of food to share so anybody that wanted to stay could.  They were also cleaning out the library and I managed to pick up some books to read - just made a donation into the fund for buying new books.
I popped out with Fran for about 1/2 hour just to pick up some craft magazines. We were originally going to do it Monday, but she needs to start ringing around to notify people about her Mum's death and stop pensions etc.
I made a casserole for tea, I put it on late so we didn't eat until about 8 p.m. Our youngest son is getting involved in rally car driving and he and some mates are doing up a car with a roll cage etc. He and another mate are going to be driving and navigating, so they have to have special fire resistant suits, glove, sock, shoes, face mask and helmets.  They got dressed up in their gear so hubby could take some photos of them for the Celica Club that they belong to.
Well, I had better hurry up and share my card for today as I still have to write up my MIM DT post for tomorrow and go through the entries from this week to choose my POTW.
So.... here it is:

 It's a telescopic card,
This is the closed view

and this is the open view. I think I might have to run a blue pen around the edge of the middle circle to give it a bit more oomph!!! Sorry didn't line it up quite straight on the scanner.
