I hear some of you like to ID old cars. Have at it.
I’m thinking a sandwich and a cold beer would taste pretty good about now. Or maybe some stew beef.

Some absolute cheeseball music from 1968. My former trumpet teacher, Ray Crisara, is the solo trumpet on this track. One of the greatest players of his generation, and also one of the humblest men you’d ever meet. RIP, Mr. Crisara.
Tatra all the things.
Looks like more damage to the vaults than previously thought. Looks like at least one in the nave, the large one in the crossing under the spire, and another on the north side of the transept.
Do yourself a favor, and watch this insane pesticide ad from Thailand through to the end.
It looks like one of the vaults in the nave, as well as the vault in the transept, caved in. What a mess.

Maho Beach on the island of Sint Maarten (St. Martin) is one of the world’s most famous locations for plane spotting, an idyllic locale where tourists can stand on the beach just off the end of the runway and practically touch the planes as they come for a landing at Princess Julianna Airport. But it’s not always…
I have absolutely no idea.
A surprise spot at AUS this morning. The Maryland flag livery is still my favorite, but this sure is pretty. The evening primroses are a nice touch. Wildflower season in TX is indeed special.
I’m not entirely sure how he didn’t expect this outcome.

No time to explain. Just get in the car.
