This is my mom and Sweetie ...
On the Southwest flight from St. Louis to Orlando, the crew had taped Christmas lights to the ceiling. It was kind of cute.
Another picture from the flight. The thingamabobs on the ends of the wings are interesting—I have no idea what aerodynamic function they serve.
Dad, Pat, and Speedy ...
Dad and Pat had an old television (manufactured in 1990) where the buttons had become detached and fallen off. It took on the flavor of a child's puzzle—only certain buttons would fit in certain holes. Only dad fully understood the child's puzzle—he was the only one who could change the television to any channel at will.
I decided to go flying while in Orlando. I thought it would be a piece of cake. Wrong! The Orlando Executive Airport is under the Class B shelf of MCO, and even getting clearance to climb out is a hassle. I would get used to that arrangement in time, but it would take another flight or two. The flight instructor who took me for a ride is Brent of Air Orlando (photos below).
An interesting set of bumper stickers on a Florida vehicle ...
The Gatorland Zoo in Kissimmee ... this was always my favorite place near Orlando. Something about the reptilian simplicity of life is appealing—if it can't eat me, I'll eat it!
The replacement TV and DVD/VCR. Both units even have remote controls ... so the child's puzzle element of TV viewing is gone.
Dad, Pat, Speedy, and me. Note that in one of the photos, Pat is surfing the internet.
