Tuesday Tidbits

Mark and Holly told me they saw a license plate recently that was spelled thusly:  CVNT.  How did that pass Illinois muster?

Mugshot Tuesday



This sweet angel of heavenly beauty was arrested around Bushnell. Doncha just hate it when the camera doesn't capture the real you.

These cicada shells were discovered in Northlandia after Miss Norah found one in Floriduh and accidentally sat on it. It took a little while to get her to discover that they are a shell and not an actual bug.  Anyway, she loves them and I have sent these to her and she has requested more.

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…
