As I was riding my tricycle home this morning, almost noon, I heard the roar of military jets overhead. Sure enough, a pair of fighters flew by, then another pair, and another. Otsego, Michigan, my home town, is just a few miles South of Grand Rapids, Gerald Ford's home town. The jets, F-15 Eagles if I judged correctly, circled by several times allowing me to confirm 6 pairs getting ready to fly by Ford's funeral in Grand Rapids. A nice bit of excitement for the day after New Year's.
