Face in the Darkness

March 6, 2018

I was going to identify the person on the tail of the Alaska Airline plane, but apparently there’s disagreement about who it actually is, or whether it is a specific person. My brief research indicates two choices are Amouak or Seveck as likely choices.

I am at the airport cell phone lot waiting for the boys to get their luggage. They did not fly Alaska.

Early morning visitor.

That’s a hummingbird bathing. Carl was out early this morning, but apparently not alone.

As Spring training trips go this sounded like a winner. Warm, but not hot. Seeing friends, planned and unplanned. Ballplayers young and old. And good batting practice (catching practice). An embarrassment of baseballs at 60 between the three amigos over 5 days.

And now there’s a rumor that Ichiro is going to sign with the Mariners again. It’s still almost a month until opening day, but in some ways it feels like the season has already started.
