Today's Sky Report

Willie is back! Over the years that we have been carpooling, we have occasionally run across a small red car (Dodge Colt?) with the designation "Alpha Courier" printed all over it. When we look inside, we notice an old guy with a weather-worn face and long hair. He is always wearing the same green cap and staring straight ahead. We nicknamed him Willie after Willie Nelson, the man we think he most resembles. Willie is always in the right lane and always going about 5 mph under the speed limit.

It has been months since we've seen Willie, and we were beginning to worry. Just like the perils of the real Willie Nelson, we thought something might have happened to him. Once or twice we've seen an Alpha Courier car, but never with Willie at the controls. Well, yesterday our worries were allayed when we cruised past Willie again. Movin' slow, ridin' low. Willie is back.
