Out of the Blue

It's Veteran's Day here in the US and Armistice Day elsewhere. Here's a salute to vets.

I'm a little off schedule this morning, pain/drugs from my tooth extraction had me up late and consequently sleeping late. The dentist was sort of appalled at the dentistry that she had to clean up, so it must have been terrible, because it's hard to get doctors to speak ill of each other. Sigh.

Okay now, that bear attack is really amazing. Not just the damage he did, but the repair job made to fly it home. I have to admit they grow 'em tough in Alaska.
