No, I am not heading to your planet’s moon. I did, however, get up early to watch Super “Snow Moon” set. Quite a sight, all teed up like this. The largest of 2019.
Parking today was horrid. An advantage of departures at oh-dark is that you get a good spot. Today not so much.
And now they are talking about delays, and I have a tight connection. No bag checked which helps.
The delay was long enough that even with a cart I just made it as boarding started. At MSP you never know. I have a long-standing habit of coming in and going out from the last, farthest gates.
This could be a very long flight. More later.
As it turned out, I had a 3.5 hour flight to LAX surrounded by babies and dogs. I think the total age of the four babies within 2 rows was, perhaps 2… in people years, not dog years. And this DOG thing on the airplane is becoming ridiculous.
And, given the comfort of the seat, this line, from the pre-flight video was a hoot:
Every time we take off, we try to make the world a little smaller.
I gave my talk – a new one with some perennial themes.
Now I’m headed back East to a snow covered car.
Meanwhile, who can interpret what Pius IX wrote in this chirograph?
While I detest still needing a cane for some things, it is good to board a bit early. On the other hand that means more time on the airplane.
It’s always something.
