In honor of the first day of Fall…
It won’t be long before people in the four-season part of the world will be seeing this sort of tableau. Alas, such is NOT the case here on The High Plains of New Mexico. In the northern part of the state, yes. Here? Absolutely not.
SN3 got his first USAF ID card this past week and The Second Mrs. Pennington was good enough to send along a scan:
She also included the following information…
He wears a men's size 10-1/2 in tennis shoes and a men's 10 in hiking boots. I kid you not. He weighs about 130 and I think must be about 5'2" now.
To which I replied, in part: “Holy Shit! … Still: amazing. It's not beyond the pale to think he could kick my ass if he had a mind to do so.”
I don’t think this would be feasible any longer. Maybe not even possible!
Taken in April of 1997. I'm just in from work, which explains the get-up.
Note I didn't say "five years ago today," coz that would be tomorrow... Monday. That said, it'll be Fall at 2044Z today... or in a lil over an hour from when I post this drivel.
