Everyone in Florida celebrates the wisdom of MLK.

Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: January 14, 2023

Be daring, be different, be impractical,
be anything that will assert
integrity of purpose and imaginative vision
against the play-it-safers,
the creatures of the commonplace,
the slaves of the ordinary.

~ Cecil Beaton

Porte Ponderings:

Staying so close to a small airport you often look up and see unique airplanes flying overhead. This small plane looks like a toy in the picture, but I can assure you it was a full sized plane overhead. 😉

Gliders are often towed up and let go to find their way back to the airport.

On my 60th birthday I took a ride in an ultra-light and loved every moment of it.

From birth to age 18 a girl needs good parents.
From 18 to 35 she needs good looks.
From 35 to 55 she needs a good personality.
From 55 on, she needs good cash.

Blue birds are another snow bird that winters over in Florida.

With white bellies’ orange highlights; a blue back, head and tails they are quite distinctive.

on yourself or others, no matter what.

Porte Ponderings:

Boat-tailed grackles are interesting mimics. They like to mimic sirens, bells and whistles. Often seen in huge groups swooping around open spaces or individuals calling to each other. I think these birds were probably the inspiration for Alfred Hitchock’s famous movie “The Birds”.
