Tuesday Tidbits

1.  Tomorrow marks the 2,000th post of Existing In BFE.  

2.  Peeve:  I hate it when they use fake money in movies and TV shows.  What, you couldn't pass the hat around on-set to make it look genuine? 

3.  When a stereotype is visually true, is it still a stereotype?

4.  The Florida sun has just about wrecked my cycle cover.  If it wasn't for duct tape, my bike would surely be exposed.  I need a garage. 




5.  Norah seems to be experiencing some sympathy pregnancy.




6.  Baseball starts again, and I have 3 fantasy teams to play with for the next 6 months.  Things may be looking up for the real team in New York, but a voice whispers to me that ultimately they will break your heart.  One of my standard rules for my teams usually is "No Cubs."  However, I am easing that policy this year for my most important team.  The Fighting Flamingoes have Jon Lester,  and frankly, I would have included more if I could have.  Their young players are that good.   

7.  International Space Station over Bedlam




In the early evening hour of 8:12 ET the International Space Station flew over Bedlam.  It took about 6 minutes to fly from SWS to ENE.  It may be my Sputnik and Telstar upbringing but I still go out and watch the ISS when it is around. 

8.  Easter was also Reveal Day here at Bedlam.  



Kenzie had her doctor/nurse put the gender of kid-on-the-way #2 in an envelope.  She then went to a local grocery store and had them bake a cake with either blue or pink inside.   

Now the Results!

I'm Flying!

Flying has not lost its charms on me.  I am still, after all, a small town kid and the thrill of it all is still just as real and palpable as the first time I climbed on board a plane.  That was back in my graduate days.  I took an Ozark flight from Denver to Waterloo and then to Peoria.  One could say that after flying with them each day since has been a gift.  Today I fly Allegiant and while they are at the bottom of safety maintenance and mechanical failure, no flight has ever crashed.  Knock on wood!  Where's some wood!  I can't find wood!  OK, I found a window sill.




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…
