Kentucky Color - Mushroom Cloud and a Prayer

'Is it a sign given to mankind of the dangers in the future or is it just another cloud formation? I can only answer, that the chill bumps still stand at attention each time I sneak a peek.' - BILLY JOE FUDGE

As Libby and I neared Glasgow recently, we spotted this giant Mushroom Cloud. Needless to say, she laid her navigating duties aside for a couple of minutes to record this image for posterity.


Being an only child with a Doctorate in Observation from the Great Wooded South University, I've put in many hot and sweaty days, and nights, honing my craft. As an aside, all you folks out there, just remember that the "Sheepskin" hanging on your wall means nothing without honing, refining and laboring to apply all that learning to the real world.

At any rate, this was and is a rare find and I can not begin to proclaim my thankfulness that this Mushroom Cloud was benign.

Is it a sign given to mankind of the dangers in the future or is it just another cloud formation? I can only answer, that the chill bumps still stand at attention each time I sneak a peek.

Please allow me the opportunity to say, "God bless America. Keep us safe and sane and vigilant. Keep us strong and firm when needed and keep us humble and compassionate always. Amen and so be it".
