I can't believe that it's Friday again, and what a dull one compared to the last couple of Bank Holiday weekends. It certainly hasn't been the bright cloudless sky as depicted in the card I have made using the wonderful new Hobby Art Flypast set.
As Jenny explained on her show on Wednesday, Magee was an American Spitfire pilot during World War II and the verse was inspired during a high altitude test flight.
It was penned on the back of a letter to his parents, three months before he died at the tender age of 19.
I think it's about time I entered another challenge, don't you lol. I hope it meets all the criteria.
The card actually got quite an airing on the show as the presenter was holding it whilst Jenny was explaining the origins of the verse.
Better post this now or I will miss the deadline for the challenge. Hope you all have a good weekend and the weather isn't too disappointing where ever you are.
Love and hugs
