We can't send the Saudis weapons fast enough.
That picture reminded me of a story my late husband loved to tell about having dinner at a favorite place in Saigon during the Vietnam War. Rich said they generally ordered the same dish & it "never" tasted the same. He added that the reason could have been because they went there to drink & then eat. After a few drinks who knows what it tasted like for sure. One day, one of the guys came down with monkey worms. Oops!

I would not call it a fleet, they had two with the TAR livery and another with the AER.

While I was GM we got them Nacelles from BA. When I left, they didn't pay. Hence the plane stayed in MIA.
4/4 I am eternally thankful to my Daddy, and our distant cousin that took us in and immediately bundled us to bed with no conversation needed. I was exhausted from the drive, and Grandma was just exhausted from worry about the home. When we returned 2 days later, we found that the huge phenomenal tree in her yard had been uprooted, lifted, and slammed horizontal against the house. It for decades looked like below. Concrete block house withstood it all.
Aware is one lesson.
I watched a movie this evening: "A Rumor of Angels."
Really very good. Touching.
Mattie (Vanessa Redgrave), one of the main characters, says at one point,
"Everyone will be stripped down to their souls before all this is done."
The profound nature of that statement made me cry like a baby. Not from sadness.
From the hugeness of the truth of it.
