Welcome Back Vic Mackey!

It's been a year and a half, and I'm thrilled that there are finally new episodes of The Shield. Unfortunately, these are the last 13 episodes. Tonight's episode threw into motion what could be the most harrowing season of the Shield. I'm going to miss this show.

A little more heartfeltish side note. On the flight back from the Outer Banks, they showed the movie Young @ Heart. It's a documentary about this chorus of elderly people that sing popular hits. It was the first time I've ever wanted to see the in-flight movie, but why show such an emotional movie on an airplane flight. My favorite performance was Fred Knittle singe Coldplay's "Fix You," and I can't stand Coldplay. Dammit if I wasn't a big ball of tears after this performance.

Funny thing was that the movie ended right as the plane landed, and you could tell which of the passengers watched the movie because they had those red post cry eyes.

I miss your posts.

The film festival in town shows one movie a month, and Young at Heart is this month's movie. You've inspired me to go see it.

I'm relieved, when I saw the title of this post, I thought it was going to be a baseball player returning to the Cubs or something.

Agree with Jiff, it's good to see a post (and your aliveness)

What is it about long-haul flights that makes us emotional?

That was beautiful. And depressing.
