1. I drove a stick shift car up the foothills in California for Driver's Ed during a "small" fire.

Funny part was I had to keep driving up to find a place to turn around.

All the guys in the class got to do the stick in the city and I got the uphill and on fire version.

Thanks a lot Mr Pace.

LOL

4. Welcome to DU, my dear TigressDem! I'm glad you're here.

You passed a tough test with that driver ed class. Very cool.

Hope you'll find DU an electronic home for these challenging times.

11. Yeah, he was the kind of teacher that only picked on those he liked.

Kind of like when you are a parent and a little league coach. Don't show favoritism, go the opposite way so no one accuses you of making it easier for the ones you like.

I was his student assistant in Geometry, grading tests and such. So everyone thought I was teacher's pet or something. Lot of work but I got to give him a little guff once in awhile.

2. That sure is amazing, my dear Celerity!

For the folks on the road, for the pilot in the plane, and especially for the photographer!

Great drama and movement!

Thank you.

8. The color "red" is good.

That is the fire retardant and is very welcomed.

9. Interestingly, I saw black fire retardant being dropped by a fixed wings in Northern California

Never saw it before, and I found zip trying to learn what it was and if it was a super slick "New and improved" fire retardant, or even if it was environmentally safer than the red stuff we're used to seeing. Black is the new orange?
