How I Spent My Birthday

Here I am at Kadena Air Base on Okinawa, strapping into an SR-71 for a Mach 3.2 photo recon run over a North Korean nuclear reactor site to confirm that operations have been shut down.

Okay, not really.

I was actually at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, and thanks to the magic of Photoshop, able to indulge my Walter Mitty fantasy.

I would kill for a ride on the SR-71. One of my friend's father worked on the cameras on the SR-71 at Beale AFB. Lots of great stories.

Tom Forbes said...

Yes, that is a Tigres jersey I'm wearing! I bought it, along with a Rayados jersey, when I was in Monterrey last month.

Happy birthday, Tom! You are numero uno! Hopefully, the Tigres aren't replacing the Cougars.

Don't worry, I still have a closet full of Coug gear!

Forget North Korea - have that thing loaded up with anti-moonbat munitions. :)

Happy belated birthday!
