...Back at the soiree alluded to above, thank your god of choice the Australians weren't there. I might have been well and truly lost [g]! Those guys are serious about their brewed stuff! ...I'm full of digressions!
He was apologetic, as many are vis a vis the subject matter, when he related the rest of his, obviously uncomfortable, tale. A small digression... where, when, how and why did we learn to feel such shame at having a truth to tell?
"Mike" (not his real name, he can't afford to associate himself with this twitchy UFO business, like most professional people...) is a highly experienced military aviator and civilian GS~13 working as a commander of instructor pilots at Fort Rucker, the sun source of the World's professional helicopter flying effort.
That's just not done! It's negligent and irresponsible! Moreover, it's impossible! Mike and his copilot watched open mouthed as the formation of lights continued on their way until they were too far away to be seen, even with the goggles.
Real enigma on the half shell, boys and girls! Dull throb of a lingering hangover or no, and finally, something newly substantive to report.
