father was a falconer and he was instrumental in the Air Force academy's mascot being the falcons while that's a coincidence well not exactly I mean that's why they said so he got the no it's a coincidence that he's the guy with all these kids and everything yeah right I mean either would be may be kind of interesting stories he was in the navy didn't work out well then he quipped that he was going to join private practice of law then he re enlisted in the airforce and rose up farther there he was briefing generals about major military operations and he was a falconer sometimes when you're doing interviews I go in your office and try to find books to read because I but I'm more interested in novels but you have two or three additions still of the books say and say nothing yeah and if you read that Griffin reddit and I'm about a third of the way through okay and that's about the troubles in Ireland what is the best book I've read this year well a lot of people say really was one of the best books written last year and it's some it's it's Justin I do this all the time Steve I pick up great books and put him down and it's it's a shame because I'd I'd love to finish them but I just am not disciplined enough to do it and I'm always like caught by the new shiny object in the new subject but say anything do you recall the author's name again now I look at that same nothing

Belfast and it's still not over I mean it's Hey can I tell you fun thing about falconry yeah and how often do you hear that sentence so they did not have the the open up this new air force academy in Colorado and if they didn't have a a mascot if you will like what is that the navy has the ram or the army has the random okay has the Indians so anyway I'm trying to talk about falconry they they he that he was big in the falcons the way you're trying to falcon which can fly like a hundred fifty miles an hour diving down its spectacular thing to see the way trying to miss the two put a hood on their head and you sit them on your arm for forty eight straight hours and you tether them so that they become dependent upon you for food and you let them only fly a short distance in the tether gets longer and actually a wild falcons will then become your household pet will poop on your sofa you just clean it up and he lives with you like a pet wow it's the craziest thing so then he said to the generals over there he goes Hey guys I don't believe you started it Hey guys anyway he got them to change or to to have a mascot and it would become the falcons this guy with twelve kids half of whom
