I don't live any where close to an airfield. At least I don't feel as if I do. I supposed that once in the air, no matter where you live in Venice, the airfield is relatively near. I think of this when I sit in my lanai and hear planes flying overhead.
They sound close. I wonder if they are in trouble and maybe looking at our golf course as a safe place to land. How safe am I. Planes, even small ones are larger looking when they are on the ground. I was a wing man once for a friend who was disassembling
his small plane for shipment. I literally held on to the wing, as he took other parts off of the body. That plane looked as if it could do some damage if it fell from the sky. I sometimes see the shadow that the overhead planes make as they pass over the condo.
That is a little close for comfort for me. Maybe I need to stop sitting on the couch and worrying about airplanes dropping from the sky and start worrying about other things, like should I serve soup and matzoh balls first or just skip to the brisket.
