And to think in a private message she led me to believe she WASN'T jealous
that Juneau bloomed before Anchorage! Oh well, I wonder about the Anchorage
news reports of an unidentified small black aircraft dive bombing anyone
that appears about to enter any large meadow that might contain a wild
iris. Newscasters are saying the reports are quite confusing as there is
engine noise, but everyone making a report says the engine sounds are
masked by what seems to be a female screeching at the top of her lungs. I
wonder what she's saying?
Kathy, is your airplane still colored black?
