How to Fly with a Bird

This is one of the most wonderful videos I’ve seen in a long, long time.  Thanks to my friend, Sam, in Juneau Alaska, for sending it to me.  It made my heart sing.  I hope you all enjoy it just as much.  Namaste’




Time to Catch Up

Well, hi everyone!  It’s good to be back in the old pueblo even though I had a very good time with my best pals.  I will be posting some of the pics I took while on my travels, starting with this one I took at the Tucson International Airport the day I left.  Tucson doesn’t have a very large airport and the only reason it’s classified as international is that there are a couple of flights a day going to Mexico.  I took so many pictures – at least 250, but I doubt that I’ll post them all.  It’s hard to believe that this year is almost over.  Most likely I will continue with my blog, but kind of doubt if I will do a photo a day.

This is actually a painted, sculpted mural outside the ladies restroom.  I didn’t have time to see if there was one by the men’s.  Next time I go back, I’ll check it out.  Equal time, ya know.  Namaste’


The Bone Yard

Today’s adventure was at the Pima Air and Space Museum where some of the old planes from around the world come to rest in peace.  Southern Arizona is the perfect place to keep them because of the dry air, which prevents them from rusting. I took about 75 pictures but am only posting a few.  Maybe I’ll do some more tomorrow.

The one that impresses me most is President Kennedy’s Air Force One, used while he was in office until he was killed in ’62 and then used by President Johnson until ’65.  Something about seeing his plane kind of overtook me.  Who doesn’t remember exactly where they were the day he was assassinated?  At least those of us who were here at the time.  No, that doesn’t make me old!!!!

The reason we went today is that several local artists have been allowed to use airplanes and parts as their canvasses.  I love what they did (in most cases).  See for yourself and let me know what you think about the painted plane.  Click an image to enlarge. Namaste’
