So just two more sleeps then he is here.

Tomorrow I need to drive the 3 hours or so to Ocala for a meeting with the bigger Boss, hope to be back before dark. I'm taking my office manager with me, she needs to meet all the HQ staff. It's gonna be a long day... but that's fine, makes the time fly until junior Zog arrives!

Not much else to report unfortunately. Leave for work in the dark every morning, get home after dark every night. Zero motivation to go out to the workshop and work on the Christmas gifts for my guys... maybe the weekend?

Lots of stuff moving around in my head right now...

But life remains good. Thanks for reading (y)

The SpaceX launch a few minutes ago, at sunset. In the second picture (much zoom with the phone camera, sorry), you can clearly see the reusable booster stage separation. It landed back at Cape Canaveral, re-entry sonic boom and all. It never gets old, watching these from the back garden.

Zog Jr. just landed safely in Atlanta.

Now the short, 90-minute hop to Orlando. It will take us 90 minutes to get to the airport, so when he takes off, we will leave here, too, in a couple of hours.

The Interstate got shut down because of a big crash. Had to take all the back roads to get to the airport. Arrived as the plane was landing. I had to get a security pass at the airline desk, then get through the TSA security so I could go get him from the escort at the gate he arrived at. That took a while....

But all went well and we finally just got home.
The dogs are both very happy to see him again.

So are Mrs. Zog and I 😁

All is well with the world again. 😎

Sorry ZOG RIP, at least he can share the moment with you, better than a day away.

So whenever life goes good, shit happens.


Late last night I got a call from my sister back in SA. My mom had just passed away. 😭

Tom was already fast asleep, so I waited until this morning to tell him.

Thankfully her end was quick and relatively painless.

Today is somewhat subdued.
Gary,
I never know quite what would make another person deal with loss easier.
I am sorry for your loss, though you have also mentioned quick and painless, which in itself is always a blessing I hope for, for myself.
you will know by now that one needs to celebrate her life and the memories she gave all of you.
Despite the pain, the memories will last longer.
Take some time for all of you to process this loss, then listen to what she would be telling you right now in this situation.
Sterkte vir julle almal.
You are In my thoughts.
