The Fallen Ace

The Fallen Ace

I have not been a very good teacher of late. I have been ill, having difficulty breathing and aching in a number of ways. I would stay home, but I lose a full day’s pay for every sick day I must use now. I could end up owing the school money at the end of the month if I miss too much. So, I have posted a Paffooney that portrays in oil paint the proper attitude. As the Baron is dropping to his death (WWI pilots did not have parachutes) he gives the old thumbs up. I know I am going out just like that. The end is coming, but I fear it not. Achtung! It has been a good flight up to now.

  1. At least you get to enjoy the fall 🙂

  2. I do hope you feel better soon.

  3. Welcome to AMS. I thought I would stop by and have a look around.
    I love the site. I find reading you, a bit disturbing on one level. I am 55 and I see the end before me also though some distance off yet.
    However, I am determined to push that aside and see what you have to say.
    So sad that just about the time you think you get it; it gets you.

  4. Here’s wishing you all the best by sharing my favorite quote “This too shall pass”!
    Cheers 🙂
