Well, the American Revolution Boogie came, and went. 

I planned an ambitious number of jumps and did half.

My video was plagued by battery failures. 

I did add several minutes of freefall time, literally dancing in the clouds.

I will be posting a bunch of images soon.

What do you call a day of nasty weather, rain, and tornados, after five great days of warm blue skies?

Saturday!

I am going crazy to get some jumps in right now, but I can't seem to find a jumpable day. 

I have been spending time that I should be productive in, simply being tired, and doing nothing useful.

I need a change!

Lots has happened since my last entry.

After losing almost 25lbs, I have returned to skydiving.

I have also gotten back to playing with my airbrush.

Some things took a back seat, but they will be brought back soon.

I plan to catch up soon and post some images of the devastation!

This has been a lazy, HOT summer.

Between the heat and wind, I have not done much astronomy.

I have also been recovering from a painful shoulder injury. Fortunately I am almost to the point where I will attempt to resume my weightlifting.

The recent rains have also improved my mood.

Okie-Tex is but weeks away. I am looking forward to some improved images.

At about this local time(1140) RMS Titanic collided with an iceberg.

A hundred years later, much still is waiting to be discovered before the wreck disintegrates.

A long time ago I bought a chunk of coal salvaged from the wreck. It contains a tiny speck of rust.

I touched it just once, and re-bagged it.

Right now I touched it again and re-sealed it.

Just this last time then never again.

So as Christmas Day was winding down, my wife decides to have a soak in her deep tub.

She is reading a good book by candle light and sipping a "Long Island Ice Tea" when Prince decides to jump up and get affectionate.

Circling the edge of the tub, as cats do he turns his behind over a candle.

My wife notices his butt igniting and pushes him into the tub.

He got a new nickname from the kids.

Prince Candle-butt.

So now spring is springing.

I am changing into shorts after work

I don't need to warm my wife's robe in the morning( "...I wish the kids were out so I wouldn't need to put on clothing.." she now says)

I can store the space heaters in the attic.

The cats now enjoy getting outside and don't have to be ejected in the morning.

My long sleeve shirts are being packed.

I can paint, and work on things in my garage/workshop.
