Sorry.
My last flight home from Columbus Ohio, the flight was delayed enough that my connection in Houston was in jeopardy. As luck would have it, that flight was delayed by an equal amount.
Flying is not as much fun as it used to be.

I just got a Flag weather update from a friend. She says 31į and sleet.

Nope, not fun.

The flight we are on is the one flight back to DFW. If it didn't leave DFW, we weren't going home today.

Seems Omicron is really jacking with crews.

I have two flights next week - Kansas City and Houston - have big concerns about pulling those off.

You can usually get a GPS fix on the truck if you track through the UPS web site or app.

Tweets aren't maps.

The tweet included the map and two bonus maps.

If I just posted the image, this dumb dumb site would shrink it so it would be too small to read.

Yeah, I've been reading about all the sick crews. Yet another chapter unfolds.

It's too small for me to read.
And. I'm beginning to slip into sleepiness from my 2:30 AM wake-up. You?

Prepping witnesses for trial in a high dollar case. Best done in person, unfortunately.

That's how my sibs and I had Christmas together without having to squeeze into a metal tube with the Great Unwashed.

If you click on the tweet and then the map you can enlarge it to full size in the browser.

After an hour or so I got sleepy enough to return to bed.

I've been re-painting the Paramount over the course of the past month. Yesterday I sanded it with 1000 grit wet/dry and it looked very nice. Today I hit it with the rattle can again, and it orange peeled just like it has every other time, I guess the answer is sand it and leave it. Tomorrow.

That's too bad. I don't know enough about paint to know what causes that.

But if you painted it yellow, would it be lemon peelin?

My unwashed brother took the bus down from NYC. We like living on the edge.
