I'm outside staining my fence. A crop duster just flew over my house so low I could see the guy driving the plane.

For the briefest of minutes, I thought he was crashing because the farmland around me is being developed so why would he be coming in hot to spray the fields? Still not sure why he was so low. But, I heard no sputtering. I heard no crash. No flames on the horizon. That's a win.

And he didn't spray anything that would be sticking to your wet fence to mess that up, I hope!

Nope. No spraying. Just motoring along slow motion.

Long ago, because I'm on the outskirts of a flying pattern of airports, I used to cut with the mower "Hi!" in my yard in huge letters.

Such small, silly things make me happy.
