Tuesday Tidbits

1.  Picture of the Day

The Tybee Lighthouse, decked out for Memorial Day weekend.  This was taken by Jeff, my climbing buddy and resident of Tybee Island.

These are the fields, small towns and by-ways of the Midwest.  This flight, taking back to Kitschland from a few weeks up North in June was one of those late afternoon, night flights that are pretty awesome.

The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
