You might have noticed that I haven't posted much in the last few months. You see, the blue spark, Sylvester, does not belong to me, neither does the camera I was using. Their owner decided I was no longer his friend and drone pilot.

But now I have something lots better! A JOB! You know, where somebody pays you for doing what you're an expert in and you have a reasonable expectation that money will come in some pedictable manner.

There are lots of things I figure on saving up for, like a place to live, a mavic 2 pro, a replacement for my partly functional Jeep Liberty and so on. But I decided to get a spark to have some fun with while I'm waiting. Since the fly more combo was $50 less for the yellow one, I got the yellow one and used the saved money to get a third battery.

Of course, all this had to come on a 3 day weekend and I have emails that they couldn't deliver on Sunday or Monday to the UPS store where I have a box.

Today after work! Yipee!

(Sylvester's owner called last week, "How do I connect the remote to the phone?" I felt like being snarky, but I helped him get it connected anyhow.)

I'm leaning toward Phoebe, for my best friend's little girl. I've also considered Felix and Tweety.

Here is her little brother Malachi. We got to church in the same outfit one day and their mom said, "We need a picture!" If you look closely in the mirror, you can see Phoebe taking the picture.

Phoebe is a bird name anyway, so very appropriate.

Well I didn't know that! Cool. I am not an ornithologist.
