The turkey is early, and accurate, this year 🙂
The targeting solution hasn’t changed much since Galileo, Newton, and Kepler, but Sam’s Specific Impulse (Isp) is out of this world.
Good job TT, thank you!
Of course that dress Jan is almost wearing is hot enough to add a couple hundred degrees to the exhaust temperature by itself.
Tried to get a reservation tonight at L’Ardente for the Frutti de Mare, but they were all booked up. I guess a bunch of Beltway types wanted Jan’s, um, autograph or something.
Damon needs to join his lovely bride for dinner tonight at L’Ardente. Think of all the ‘sploidy heads.
Perhaps like Javier, Damon can also clear out a restaurant.
Finally, an answer to the age-old question of whether it’s “stuffing” or “dressing.”
Jan did the dressing.
Sam did the stuffing.
As for cnn, we have a saying up here… “och, get STUFFED !!!”

Too Tall, you magnificent bastard.
According to the late Stockton Rush, 50+ year old white guys might not be “inspirational,” but we can keep you alive, safe, and free.
Just imagine what us 70-year olds can do!
50 years ago this last May, I was Discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps. Stationed at Cherry Point, NC (2nd Marine Aircraft Wing)
A wonderful thought, and some marvelous images.
U.F.O. … Unidentified Fowling Object
Nice of Sam to leave the main body of the satellite intact. The remaining solar cells might provide just enough power for the diags to report home via a low gain antenna…since the high gain one has a few holes as well.
That turkey has wings! Or orbital guidance devices. Too Tall has blessed us with GTMs. Guided Turkey Missles, The possibilities are endless.
Dibs on the flaming wings on reentry.
Careful, that did not work out well for the folks at WKRP in Cincinnatti.
If that’s the case Sam should start launching wild boars in honor of Les Nessman’s 5 Silver Sow awards…..
Just realized that 30 years ago, right about this time of the month, I checked out of Patrol Wings Pacific at Moffett and headed east.
Morning sun in my eyes and Needles CA in my rearview mirror; happiest day of my life.
Well there is No Fixing that piece of shoddy equipment. It only spewed sewage across the waves. Good Deal Too Tall. Now where is it going to drop on when the orbit degrades? Maybe that Corvette in Kid Sniffers garage right next to that paperwork…
Too Tall that’s awesome!! I wonder if Javier could come up with an orbiting multiple launch turkey fryer (OMLTF) for Sam. Now that would be a weapon of mass introduction to Jan’s campaign promises…
“As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.”
Well, Mr. Carlson may have been slightly off base, but they sure as hell can be aimed and launched.
I am impressed that Zed, a shooter of no small repute, is wowed by his wife’s marksmanship.
Slightly off topic: Remember that recent Pentagon 6 billion dollar ‘accounting error’?
