The kids both had a great day at school. And yes, they are both wearing the same style of shoe.
My kids are very lucky to have WifeGeeding’s sister as their aunt. She always calls the kids on the first day of school to see how their went. WifeGeeding’s mother doesn’t get a chance to call as the kids are anxious to call her as soon as they get home. It’s nice to hear them talk to WifeGeeding’s parents, it gives me a chance to imagine what it would have been like for my kids to have talked to my parents.
I usually don’t pick up the kids from school but I did so yesterday and let DogGeedingII ride along. BoyGeeding’s teacher from last year was working the carline and opened the back door but didn’t notice the dog right away, when she glanced back in she was so surprised she jumped and screamed and we all had a good laugh. DogGeedingII on the other hand had no idea what was going on.
I eat Vietnamese food only once a year, on my mother’s birthday. Each year I call in the same to-go order. They never give me the total, ask for my name or phone number, and never confirm the order, but always recognize me when I walk in to pick it up.
The TICKET had what I thought was a no-brainer hypothetical – would you rather be able to run 100 mph or fly at no faster than 10 mph. I didn’t even have to think twice about it, fly. Even though that’s a slow speed, it would be great to pick up a few items at the local grocery store and not have to worry about parking or be at events with a bird’s-eye view.
Sometimes when I start to overthink something I’m reminded of something a great naval aviator once said, “You don’t have time to think up there. If you think, you’re dead.”
Interesting aviation tidbit – The first commercial passenger airliner that was shot down by hostile forces was refurbished and returned to service; however, that plane became the third commercial passenger airliner to be shot down by hostile forces. The aircraft was operated by a Chinese airline, shot down both times by the Japanese, and both times piloted by an American.
I’m that one guy without a LinkedIn profile, but then again, I’m also not on Facebook – Is the résumé dead?
