The Southwest Airlines air emergency had to be scary. Loss of cabin pressure when a hole opens up in the roof at 36,000 feet. I can imagine more than one of the 118 passengers thought they wouldn't live to see tomorrow.
I had a totally unrelated fright this morning when Bailey took off. She flew to the backyard after something caught her eye. We picked up the paper from the front stoop then she ran around the corner so fast that I lost sight of her. It doesn't help that her coloring isn't too unlike the surrounding leaves, twigs and brown grass.
Too early on a Saturday morning to yell very loud and, besides, she hasn't yet learned to come when I call her name anyway. I was this close to running into house and alerting wife of the problem, but then I'd have to admit I screwed up. If I could find her soon wife would never be the wiser.
I was running around the yard in my jammies like the house was on fire. If I didn't find the girl I'd never hear the end of it. Fortunately she soon appeared, nearly underfoot, over by the neighbor's wood pile. She's been off leash in the back yard often as I play with her and get her used to boundaries. It won't totally end, but I'll have to be a lot more careful in the future.
