	While sitting and waiting for my recent Frontier Airlines flight to
complete boarding, I noticed the captain arriving.  He was carrying what
looked like a large transparent blue earth globe.  He quickly entered the
cockpit, leaving me to wonder what this new navigation device was.

	Later in flight, the flight attendent opened the cockpit door and I
looked in.  The globe was actually a beach ball, and the captain had
wedged it into the front window above the glare shield.  He was using it
to keep the sun out of his eyes!
