Tuesday Tidbits

1.  The Florida summer heat is starting.  This is when you most certainly don't want anywhere near this penis of a state.  It literally sucks the life right out of you.  From now until September we will be enclosed in some form of air-conditioned cage. 

2.  Norah is coming up with all kinds of interesting things to call me when I say "no".  Among the best are:  "You're weird", "Fine! I can't believe it", "Dude", "You're so annoying" and just the other day, "Jesus freak".   It's kind of funny because when she hurls these little bombs at me she immediately looks up to see if she has crossed the line.  Hey, Norah, Papa's line is that barely distinguishable thing way out there.

5.  I saw The Imitation Game over the weekend.  I recommend it, it was very good.

6.  Seen on a recent trip to Target:  

This is Junior, ugly as sin, hung, and 2 years old.  

This is, well, I'm not sure what is going on here, but I think that's enough for one day.

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…
