I always thought "Free Beer" would be a great name for a band. Can you just imagine putting up posters with that name? Another I've liked is "Tuxedocide."Peace,Tim
By the time the plane actually took off, most of the crowd had shivered their way back inside. Only about a third of the station was onhand to wave goodbye on the flight deck. You may be on to something with the band name. You should go out and start one up now.
Tim - Both of those are great! I think I'll do a post on cool suggestions for band names. Just great!Neal - I need to call my nephews.
My dad was the officer in charge at old Byrd Station, once upon a time. At the time, the Antarctic service was considered significantly more dangerous than Vietnam. In fact, while he was there, he watched a plane very much like that blow up on takeoff.
Jack - Your dad stories are amazing. You could dedicate a whole blog to his stories alone.
Yeah, Dad's had some interesting experiences. For instance, while at the South Pole, a penguin presented him with a pebble. Neal probably knows what that means. And if he doesn't, I'm sure Google does.
Jack - Google did know and that's one of the cutest things I've ever heard of.
That's practically heavy industry down there at that near-pole.
I got a comment from Neal, and checked him out, then he pops up in your post---the psychic twin weirdness continues
Old Horsetail and Lorna - I hope you're reading Neal's blog. He's an entertaining writer and very interesting.
Awww, Laurie, thanks for saying I'm entertaining. I think your site is way better than mine. I've heard of the penguin and the pebble thing, though there's no penguins here at the south pole to pick up on.
Neal - I wonder what happens when humans give a pebble to a penguin.
Are you sure they are not just doing their early morning work-out?
Astrid - Yeah! I hadn't thought about that one.
