Thanks, always looking for a good movie. Cancelled cable over a year ago.

Really strange thing just happened. An A-10 and a blue F-16 just flew overhead. We rarely see military aircraft around here (no active base except for the 129th CANG Rescue wing at the old Moffett airfield) and never see the A-10. Earlier this morning there was a C130 circliong around to the south and a couple of days ago a F-15 flew over on the same path as the two jets today. Oh, and 4 Blackhawks flew over in formation directly overhead at about 800 feet AGL (see pic) a couple of days ago as well. All of this since the election.

I just heard from a neighbor that the A10 and F16 flew by the Ferry building in SF for Veterans Day. I imagine the C130 was something similar but it was circling over the mountains, not anywhere that there would be a Veterans Day thing going on.

I called my Grandpa today. The conversation went like this:

Hey grandpa how are you?

"Did you vote?"

Yes sir

"Did you vote for Obama?"

No sir.

"Well then I guess I'm doing fine."

I think he may have disowned a few of my cousins....

This was Epic.

tripjr: "WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?!?!?!"
me: "what?"
jr: You wanna get fired? Huh? Do Ya?
me: Dude, what the heck are you talking about?
jr: You're gonna get fired if you wreck this work truck!
me: I'm not gonna wreck it...
jr: You will if you don't STOP DOING DONUTS!!!
me: ....okay.... you don't have to yell at me though...
jr: Well ONE of us has to act "SPONSITILIBLY"!!!

It didn't even dawn on me that this is not a conversation that one would normally have with their 6 year old until we were back at the office and he told me to sit down and do my paperwork, "Right NOW". Bossy little squirt.

Well, he turns 7 in about 2 weeks.

I know where you can buy a nice 20mm rifle for $5000 , but it's probably not legal in California.
