    Last night we went to IC and had dinner and drinks with friends at Big Grove. Ducked out to get back to their apartment before the rain hit though. Just sat around talking which was nice. One of the couples recently bought a house and decided while cleaning to pull out the oven. They were disgusted that the previous owners apparently never did that and left matchbox cars and letter tiles from the fridge under there. I just laughed.

    Busy week with work, B-17 visit on Tuesday along with my dad having a reverse shoulder replacement.

    What's the scoop on the B-17 visit?

    Flights in the morning ($470/person...it’s not cheap to fly this thing around) and ground tours from 1-5 for $10/person. It will be in Ankeny next weekend and Mason City in a few weeks I believe.

    Also EAA just restored a B-24 and I am trying to get that for a weekend next year.

    Smoking ribs today, went to the store to buy apple juice. Needless to say, I got home and no juice.

    How long would you guys wait until you contacted an embassy for a potentially missing person?

    Long story short my stepmom was robbed in France, got her passport, drivers license, credit cards, and phone all stolen. Last I heard was she got her emergency passport at the embassy and was flying out the next day. That was Thursday and haven't heard from her since.

    Got an invitation to HS 50th class reunion for 5:30 September 14th in NE Iowa. Iowa State/Iowa game is at 3:00 in Ames. WTF were they thinking? And by "they" I mean the gals from my class that set this up. Got to choose one or the other now.

    Reminds me of when the guy doing my mom's estate sale two years ago was going to do the same thing, have the sale on during the game. Ah, no we ain't dude. Come on, NE during that game would just have me gone. The target audience of household junk and antique stuff is Hawk fans!

    How many HS reunions have you actually gone to? I see I got invited to a Facebook group for my 10th year reunion (even though its 2 years away). Probably not gonna go. Seems too fresh

    Ah, good one there. We are so spoiled with cell phones and instant contact I don't know what to think about this. Wonder if they can let you know if she went through customs here. They would have that info but whether they would share it is another matter.

    Yes, a 10 year reunion is sort of ********, skip it. Think I've been to two, mostly because my mother was still alive and if I skipped them she would give me a bad time and it was also an excuse to drive down and see the parental units. 50 seems like one I should attend although I kinda hated high school and not really friends with many from that period of my life. On the other hand, I am an admin on the class FB page and and pretty much the only one who shares of pics and stuff. Won't mind seeing a couple of the guys I hung out with back than but not sure if they are attending. Hell, not even sure if they are still even alive! Won't be able to talk with Rick, the guy whose fastball broke my nose so badly, since he died this year. And the catcher that day to. :(

    Watching MLB streaming and I see the Bounty paper towel step-on-the-giant-lego-spill commercial between every half inning. o_O

    More frequent than the old Lady Gaga Dive Bar Tour commercials on Cyclone.TV a few years ago.

    Can you check with the airlines to see if she made her flight? Hope you hear from her soon.

    I went to my 35th in 2001. The only one I ever went to. It was the same weekend as the ISU vs UCONN game so I figured I could do two things on that one weekend. Probably wouldn't have flown out for just one or the other.

    I went to my five year to see if any of the drunk girls from the class would be around and how they looked. Haven’t went to another since.

    Went to my 10, 20, 30, was going to pass on my 40 but Lew talked me into it. Too many posers, rwnj & faux wealthy, who all drink way too much. The 40 wasn't even IN Bellevue (despite it being the fifth largest city in the state). We paid way too much for a cash bar, finger food buffet (that was supposed to be dinner), and a band composed of former classmates.

    I don't think there is a chance in hell of me going to the 50. I have better ways to spend my money. :D

    Wife just showed me a snap chat of someone while he was driving. Thought it was illegal but realize it must not be since it was a police officer.
