I think I found it!
Maybe it was a gold lining rather than silver, but at any rate, the sky was quite stunning after that little shower this evening.
But please God, stop the rain for a few days so I can catch up with mowing and planting. Thanks.
Today is primary election day in Illinois.
The state is in pretty sad shape. Go vote the bums out that got us here.
I guess I should start posting stuff again.
I slow down in the winter…….
Patrick Swayze has died after a long battle with Pancreatic cancer.
Mr. Swayze played Jed Eckert in the quite awesome movie Red Dawn, not to mention prominent roles in lesser movies (Ghost, Dirty Dancing, etc).
|A good paper airplane can keep a young boy occupied for hours, especially when he makes the plane himself. I used to make airplanes a lot as a kid, so when people claim they have the best paper airplane in the world, I take notice. I happen to think I make a pretty good plane, but this lifehacker post shows how to make the world record holding paper airplane. Hmmpff.|
I wonder if that plane could make it from the high C-section in the Assembly Hall (Champaign, IL) all the way down to the basketball court — AND — get picked up by a ref and tossed to the side during the state tournament? HMMM?? One of my planes did! That’s right… I didn’t throw it – too chicken – but if I remember right, Davis Bauguss made the fateful throw. BUT I MADE THE PLANE!
Anyway, I’m going to have to try this out. A good plane shouldn’t take origami lessons to make. My plane can be done in 12 folds…
