And there's a reason why the mournful ballad is so heart-wrenching -- it was recorded at one of the Possum's lowest points.

First Christian Church to Hold 11th Annual Favorite Poem Night

Kids, you may or may not know this, but, at one point in my life I was headed in a completely different direction than the one I currently walk.  Yes, I did all sorts of things as a kid, but generally there was a common theme to a lot of it.  I really liked school, and I loved the libraries.   So of course, I had my head in books a lot.

When I was small up until about my junior year of college, I was going to be a teacher.  Specifically, I was going to be a high school English teacher.  I know, can you imagine?  I'd not only be the goofiest teacher ever, but half the time I'd be mistaken for a student.   But yes, I was always in love with books, plays, poetry, and all that stuff.  I did creative writing, I did theater, I did tons of reading.   So when I see things like this upcoming event, I'm always interested.

SR-71: A Plane I’d Love To See Fly

I have always considered myself a good Air Force Brat as my dad served in the Air Force for over 20 years. While I only was at three bases, Castle Air Force Base in California; Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany; and Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, I got to see a lot of great planes.  I love the B-2 Stealth Bomber, A-10 Thunderbolt; T-38 that are stationed at Whiteman. I have enjoyed going to air shows to see everything from the old biplanes to the Mustangs to the F-4 Phantom to the F-16s.  However, I was a watching a movie Turbulent Skies and got to thinking that I never have seen an SR-71 fly in person.
