Very quick road trip
Miss D. and I are off to Lexington, KY for the night. The Commemorative Air Force is flying in there with their B-29 Superfortress, 'Fifi', a P-51 Mustang and another plane. I've bullied her into taking a half-hour flight in the Mustang, on the grounds that it may be the only chance she ever gets to fly in a warbird like that. It'll count as an advanced birthday present. (Funny, she didn't seem to take much convincing . . . must be an Alaskan bush pilot thing!)
Anyway, we're hitting the road. I'll post an update from our hotel. Please say a prayer or two for us for traveling safety - and if you're in or near Lexington, KY tomorrow morning, and a Mustang parts your hair at high speed and vanishes into the distance trailing a high-pitched full-throated exultant "Yeeeeeaaaaah!", that'll be my wife!
