A couple of weeks ago I had a nutty dream that inspired a nutty short-short story which I posted here on March 7. If you caught the first segment of CNN’s “New Day” this morning, you saw a guy who could be one of the “flyers” of my dream/story…Joby Ogwyn ascends mountains the old-fashioned way — one hand hold and foot hold at a time — but descends by flying down the mountainside free as a bird in his wing suit! CNN showed a photo of this stuntman sailing earthward in a red, black and yellow outfit. Kind of looked like a flying squirrel.
When I Googled Joby Ogwyn, I saw that I missed his appearance last night on the Tonight Show, and all I could find out about his upcoming “flight” off the top of Mount Everest is that it will be aired on Discovery Channel sometime in May. I was relieved, though, to see no all white wing suits in any of the photos (read my March 7 post to find out why).
Y’all have a good day, on or off the ground!
