  3. Hi, I am visiting you back. Thanks for stopping by. I watched the u-tube video.I love this poem. I love watching jets in flight.I moved from Colorado when I was 13 so I didn\’t get to see this particular sign off before. I remember, back in the day of the blue snow, waking up on the couch to the national anthem playing or the sound of static. Oh, the memories.
