Tuesday Tidbits

I hope this Smart car in the St. Pete police pool is assigned to meter work rather than to patrol.   

Lost is the bright lime green of this spider that was sunning himself on the car last week. 

I always have enjoyed the look and feel of an impending storm - unless I'm on a bike somewhere on the highway.

This guy just wanted a Happy Meal at MacDonald's and like many down here wanted a free handout.  

Sad word that Don Featherstone, inventor of the yard flamingo passed away a month ago. If there is any one object that best describes Floriduh it is the annoyingly kitschy plastic pink flaming on two metal spikes.  Gee, thanks a lot, Don, I think.

My admittance for surgery scheduled for July 1st was moved up from 7:30 am to 5:30 which was fine with me.  Less crowds.  Having never been in surgery (do my 2 vasectomies count?) this was an interesting experience and I hope it was all worth it.  It was pretty expensive but then I guess the ability to breath ranks high in general health, too.  A full report to follow.  

Rain postponed our annual family 4th of July get-together at the Vinoy to watch fireworks.  We've been lucky as this is the first time the show was cancelled.  

My First Baby Shower

Mackenzie's work crew at Piper Fire had a baby shower for her last week.  I could have done a separate post on it alone, but I found it generally uninspiring, so over to Tuesday Tidbits it goes.  Norah worked the worm like a hungry squirrel works nuts.  Lots of the usual kinds of party food and 2 months worth of diapers.  All in all, I'm glad I went but the best thing was the penny I found on the bench outside.

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…
