Wow, great pictures all! A bummer about the office, but can't you put the poster up when the paint dries, or was it a permanent ban since the paint was classified as renovation?

I actually saw a double rainbow a few years ago, actually when looking over the fields next to the cemetary where my dad was buried, it was quite a sight, that was also partly the reason I wanted him burried there, it was a nice view with the fields right on the other side of the place, but sadly then we moved 100 miles away, and my dad's wish was to be near my mom.

About the frost feathers then the really weird thing was (if I haven't said it already) that it was actually a few plus degrees, but it was moist yes, and I actually think the car has some on it's windows later that morning/noon too.

This is a view down the spine of the Sierra Mountains, that run along California's eastern border.  We were flying out of western Nevada last August, and told to fly a patrol, looking for fires.  Sorry for the bugs on the windshield, but that's summer for you!     :D

Love that Minneapolis skyline.  UNDATC, I may have seen one of your group on TV over the weekend.  My opinion is that's a great hockey arena, full of tradition, cold temps, AND NO BOX SEATS!!!!!!!!!!!  The ice sheet's too big, though.   ;)  How long did you spend at "The Mall"? (Minnesotans know the difference between the mall and The Mall   :D )

Frank, in the US, the it's the tailgater's fault if there's an accident.  Don't let them push you around.   ;)

Got this picture from a friend and coworker who took her back to Oshkosh..  they won some kind of award but I can't find his e-mail right now, sorry...  anyway, he helps people restore pretty old birds and he always has these lovely photos.  I especially love this one, it was taken at night.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

Resurection Bay, just outside of Seward Alaska on an Early August morning.  Taken from a friend's boat, the Quasar.

Off the boat theme for a minute...  this is a training jump, actually it was done for the pilot's checkride, and this is a jumper about to get the "slap" to exit.

(As opposed to the pilots who just get slaps for being dopes........   ::drinking:: )
