No Scope and I Take a Bump
Today was spent entirely in airports and in the air. I flew back to Norfolk from Manchester NH leaving Denny and Terry Abbott to keep things going until I returned later in the year. There has been no word about my lost scope, so I am presuming it is not going to return. I'll file an insurance claim and get some funds to use toward a replacement. I also took a bump on the flight from Baltimore to Norfolk meaning I gave up my seat and gained a chit worth $457 toward a future Southwest flight. I view that as scope money too. Tomorrow Joyce and I will go to Pea Island NWR in NC to look for the White-cheeked Pintail. Whether it will count as a yearbird is out of my hands.
