A friend of my sister, Jeff, had to land his experimental plane in a field today when a propeller somehow fell off. Those of the yarn-obsessed persuasian will be happy to know their wool is just fine and will be appearing in yarn stores near you!

Regarding the old guy who stated the propeller landed five feet away from him, I'm sure we've all heard an old bear story or two from our grandparents. It's amazing how "facts" change when you have a good audience.
But seriously, Jeff is doing fine (though I'm sure he's a big shaken up) and his plane is OK too.
In unrelated news, these flowers were found tucked away at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.
