The Sky’s The Limit? #socs #jusjojan

"The sky’s the limit" prompted me to look up through the skylights in the living room, but I didn’t see much, because it’s overcast. So the limit today is 1600 feet (I checked the National Weather Service) or about 487 meters (I checked Siri for all you metric fans out there).

I kind of like the picture above, because it looks like the slide they used to put up on TV when there was a rain delay during a baseball game. Kind of like this…

        1. We visited a friend in the hospital about 40 years ago, and she was havin’ a butt while they exercised her knee. A lot of the earlier ads showed doctors endorsing Camel cigarettes. Seems really weird now…
