"Skywatch" (my third) -- Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been?


[large picture] [super size]

Of course, the Jim Bunch eats, wherever they may be, at home, in town, on the road, or like here, in the air.

.



This is Continental Airline's snack. If this is a snack, my definition of a meal may change. We had crackers with peppercorn Parmesan cheese and beef salami, a bag of tail mix (I pulled the peanuts out for Mrs. Jim), a bag of M&M candy, and a whole can of Diet Coke.

Then there was another Diet Coke (my fave soft drink) and two cups of coffee for after dinner time, and an ample supply of water for my meds.
.

I read my Blogstock '08 book, made by Ralph, from cover to cover while in-flight. Here I am reading Ralph's bio, it is most interesting, especially after meeting him and Mrs. Ralph.

Note also that I had my GPS on continuously when the all clear for electronic gadgets was announced. This picture was taken while we were over Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.

I like to look at the sky views and the different clouds. I took a lot of pictures, these beauties were to be found over the Houston area. (Go here to see where we've been.)

You need not say anymore - I once flew with Continental fro Newark to SF and they tried to swindle me for $15 when I bought a mini-bottle or red wine.

And, BTW - the "Sky wing" was great!

Love the photo out the plane's window. Hmmm. My daughter and son-in-law work for Continental. ;-)

Wonderful shot Jim, the clouds are very unusual, or at least to me but I have not flown much.

Have a brilliant weekend.

Thank you for visiting Jim..sorry your don't like birds. We kind of need them to eat all the insects. GG. The white wash is just the added benefit..but my deck really doesn't get that dirty. I wonder if they know your true feelings about them. LOL..Michelle..

I love your plane photo. It's been years since I've flown and this was such a pretty picture to remind me what a lovely experience it is.

I love sky watch photos from above. Boy that sounds like a long trip. That's all the kind of food that would have me burping... :0)
So are you back in Texas now or far away from Texas. enjoy yourselves wherever you are...

Hi Jim, TGIF!

re: your remarks about walking to Target; I would probably be mowed down. That particular stretch of road is not pedestrian or even cyclist friendly. No path/sidewalk, and the boulevard is 50 mph between traffic lights. I'm safer in the car, even though it does nothing for my carbon footprint.

Lovely skywatch, even better snack! :D

I've never been on a commercial airline, so I don't know about the food they serve, BUT... that sure is an awesome view!!!

I prefer the photo.
Panoramic view, nice shot.

Wonderful view captured from your flight! Good looking "snack" too!

Sigh... air travel is so going downhill rapidly. Exhorbitant prices for so called snacks and charging for the first bag? Sigh...

Still... seeing those clouds outside your window is very soothing.
