Justin's daughter had an appendectomy last night and needed her dad. So Charlie and JB and I discussed appendix stories under beautiful blue skies, with just a bit of chill in the air, and a little breeze. Charlie saw a bobcat on The Bump while descending, but I was a ways back and didn't see it. Seeing one bobcat per year is about average - two in the same month is rare indeed...even if it was the same one twice.
Next week Charlie and I will both be no-shows.
No poppies yet, but I'll let you know.
