Sweetie has a couple of favorite DVDs (for cats) to watch.  These photos are of Sweetie pawing at the television trying to interact with the characters (birds, rodents, fish, etc.) in the DVD.

Photos of an aircraft accident at RMY (Brooks Field, Marshall, Michigan) where a plane was hand-propped and got away from the owner (who was outside the plane) due to too great a throttle setting.  The plane apparently did several circles out of control on the pavement, then a wing tip struck the ground and it did circles of a different diameter, then finally it destroyed the fuel metering equipment and was stopped by collapse of the landing gear and by a telephone pole.  Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured.

Some of the photos below show the tire marks on the pavement where the airplane was going around in circles.

The City of Marshall is now placing secret messages on police cars.  The photo below shows the words Lice Shall, which is clearly a coded directive to secret operatives.  My investigation into this weighty matter is ongoing.
