    a relief to read that it is not something serious


    and in the interests of good taste, we shall refrain from theorising
    that the lump is midway between your shoulders and has hair on
    top of it.

    My family has lived here for 60 years. 2 miles away is the airport/Air Force base.

    We have noticed that leading up to any war/conflict there are days and sometimes weeks of intense fighter aircraft traffic through the base. This was true for the 1st gulf war and the second, Libya, etc. We always knew, and it always affected us.

    Today I was in a lady's basement draining and repairing a water heater. I began to hear what were obviously fighters flying over for landing at the base. Over and over, it sounded like many of them.
    I got outside and saw an F-35 going over, the first I've seen here.
    I though Oh Shit we really are going to war with Iran. On the way home my phone rang and it was Mom, saying "Here we go again." I told her it's going to be ok.

    I got home, got online, and found the Thunderbirds are here for an air show May 18th. An F-35 is here for the show too. Mom was amazingly relieved to hear it.

    Phew.

    Good news about my sister. Recently she lost her job and a week later her husband died. She is a very sensitive person and I was extremely worried about her going through this alone. No relatives on his or her side of the family are there for her so she is absolutely handling it totally alone.
    We've been calling and texting almost daily, she has also reached out to her best friend and we are helping her through - and she is ok. Like a champ.
    We've had long talks about stuff and it's been really cool.

    My sister rocks.

    I have to take Mom for a blood test so I'm up. 5:30.
    On tv is coverage of the yearly Balloon Fiesta here. The one time I went we sat stuck in traffic for an hour while the mass ascension went up. Then we had to pay $15 for parking.

    now I'm drinking coffee at home while watching scenes of all the people sitting stuck in traffic waiting to get in. I like this better.

    *Now I'm back, 2 hours later, and they canceled the ballon flights due to too high of winds. It was special shape balloons, too.
