Painted Sky







My green red car got the best average yet at 43.7 mpg driving 358.4 miles. I thought I was going to squeeze an average of 44 mpg out of it this tank, but one day of really heavy stop and go traffic nixed the 44 mpg average. When I filled the tank it took 8.2 gallons of gas, which when you divide 358.4 miles by 8.2 gallons you get 43.7073 mpg. Normally when I divide the miles by the gallons the mpg is a little lower than what the car’s computer calculates because of the variation on where the pump kicks off. This time the car’s computer and the pump synced.

    • Those two have a nice painterly feel about them. I think it’s our dry, dusty air that helps create such beautiful sunsets. You were a flight attendant? Domestic or international? You must have seen sunsets from various destinations? Thanks, Robin.

      • That’s probably it with the colorful skies. Yep, I did a lot of gawking out the plane windows looking at the sky and clouds, and the land is beautiful too from up in the air.
        I was with American Eagle, so mostly small propellor planes in Texas. I’d have some small jet flights to Greenville, South Carolina, and occasionally fly up to Chicago to work a few days.

      • I’ve been on a few of those small commuter planes in New Mexico. I’ve seen some nice sunrises from 36K feet on flights to Europe. We saw some beautiful sunsets in Paris, but I don’t remember great sunsets in Spain, southern France, or Italy.

      • There are probably great sunsets at times in the other areas, we just didn’t see them. Although, we lived in Madrid, Spain for almost 4 years and don’t remember seeing colorful sunsets. On the other had, they had fantastic fireworks shows to make up for the lack of sunsets.
