Been cancelling like crazy

Pixar UP toys on a rock trail
A dime would easily cover the heart. Tiny. Surrounded by billions of stones. Nearly seven miles of trail from Chalet to car. The odds of seeing this upside down in a fleeting moment is zero. And yet it happened. Photo: Aiming up where we are hiking away from.

Been cancelling like crazy.

What?

Cancelling all June’s reservations: lodge, car, bike. Multiple iterations and combos – and redundancies – in case an unpredictable event closes portions of Glacier.

Why?

Because air fare is off the charts. For Cheryl and i to go bike Going-to-the-Sun Road is too much to justify.

The June trip dates to Glacier is driven by Sun Road opening. Sun Road opening is driven by snow plowing progress.

June airfare traditionally gets books a week in advance. That’s it. In a typical year, airfare never skyrockets. Right now, the July and August first-class airfare is less than an economy seat. And first-class is triple the norm.

The other two trips to Glacier are locked in months in advance and tickets purchased. If snow plowing had a guaranteed completion date, we’d have been able to lock and load our June arrival months ago.

Grateful for this first-world challenge. #PrayForUkraine

Spare change and questions

five handwritten questions on a post it note
Five questions as DU/DI reunion conversation starters. Never used them. Carried the post-it note in front pocket and forgot about it.

Spare change and questions.

Both are backups.

Rarely needed.

Usually forgotten like it doesn’t even exist.

Yet every once in a while, spare, or extra, comes in handy.

A giant sponge

Florida lakes from a jet
Approaching Orlando airport…reminded what a first time visitor might be thinking…”Wow, there are a lot of lakes here.”

A giant sponge.

Florida is.

Home is a sponge.

Yee-haw!

Make me vomit

Disneyland Tea Cups
The Tea Cups are my nemesis.
Disneyland is littered with Walt Disney’s DNA.

Walt Disney literally walked every inch of Disneyland.

While Disneyland’s size is a fraction of Walt Disney World’s (WDW), Walt’s DNA had to be transferred to WDW via his Disneyland disciples.

Thank God Walt had committed disciples.

Let’s pray our world has peaceful, loving, dedicated future-generation disciples.

The American Dream

The American Dream.

It means different things to different people.

What i see in this video is different than what others see.

Why?

Diversity of perspective.

What few Americans will see in this video is peace and freedom.

Ukrainians are dreaming of peace and freedom right now.

Ukrainians are dreaming of safety, fresh drinking water, quiet, and an end to their nightmare.

Change what you see and what you see changes.
