Tuesday Tidbits

Two of my favorite single lines in movies are the above from Planet of the Apes.  The second, (sorry, no You Tube clip) is Nigel Davenport's steely proper English Sergeant-Major, when he tells his outnumbered troops  in Zulu:  "Steady.  Steady, lads."  I've used both phrases off and on with family for decades.


My third and final doctor's appointment is on the 11th.  After that I will look for a cheap ticket back to Northlandia.   


The debate on the 6th is most definitely Must-See TV.


My fantasy baseball team, once in last place, is now in 6th.  One more spot higher and I will be eligible for the playoffs.  


My Princess.  Recently she has begun claiming that everyday " the best day, ever!"  I hope this stays for awhile.  Wouldn't it be nice to have that kind of child-like wonder and joy?  


With my recent surgery I now have open cavities in my head.  After I do my twice daily nasal flushes,  often I will move my head a certain way and water will come out of my nose like a spigot. 
I'm a riot at kid's parties.


Finally saw American Sniper at thought it generally OK, but once again find fistfights and firefights boring.  And we had another graphic vomiting scene, apparently every movie now has to have one of those.   


This is a very short film showing Kenzie, Drew, Norah and newborn Ayla transferring from delivery room to recovery room.  Kenzie had just pushed a button that pipes a recording of Brahm's Lullaby throughout the hospital signaling a new birth.  Pretty cool.  I liked that Norah thought to bring her suitcase, although she wasn't able to stay at the hospital.

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…
