Nice Work, If You Can Get It...

Mount Rainier from the Cockpit of a Super Hornet
Yeah, sure. There are times when I envy the younger generation.

Especially those who get to fly jets. Fast jets.

Hey, life in the cubicle farm isn't all bad. Hey, it's a paycheck!

Okay, so it's not fun. No fun at all.

But this is...

He's teaching the next generation to be Naval Aviators.

Lucky kid!

    Until such time as people start shooting at you, with very bad intent. While it's not completely unknown, MOST people in cubicles don't get shot at. Very often, anyway, certain relatives excepted.

    Nice pics!

    1. There is no safe place these days. Sad to say.

      But yeah, there are no Class A cubicle mishaps that I'm aware of.

      But still, to have one of those babies strapped on to one's back...

      Sigh...

  4. WHHHAAAAAATTTT???? They're not flying Eagles, they're flying Hornets...I think I'm going to call copyright infringement or something. (Unless your Son-in-Law can get me a ride or something.) Just sayin'

    1. So Virgil, you and Juvat don't miss flying fighters much do you?

      All kidding aside, if Big Time ever asks if I know anyone (other than myself, of course) who wants a ride in the Rhino, I'll make sure you and Juvat top the list.

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
