Did you find pointless ways to spend your weekend? It was a busy weekend here with an auction, birthday party, and gardening all on Saturday's agenda.
Speaking of gardening, a few nights ago, I was watering the garden when I heard a familiar and distinct sound. I looked up to the sky and saw my friends in the Goodyear Blimp. Each year, they fly over my house en route to Akron, which is this ship's home. They had been in Indianapolis for the race.
They were directly over my neighbors house, but by the time I got my camera and ran out the front door, they were moving away from my neighborhood. I was able to click these two quick shots.
|This picture gives you some idea of how low they were flying.|
I've debated whether to share this story, but I decided you would appreciate this typical La situation. As I said, the blimp is a familiar sight and sound and I showed you how low they fly.
Well, the first time I heard it was when I was much younger. I was showering when I heard this unusual sound for the very first time. I tried to figure out what it was because it doesn't sound like a plane...or a mower...or a motorcycle. What is that? It sounded so close...
Did I mention our bathroom window is in the bathtub?
I just HAD to see what was making that noise so I pulled back the curtain to look out and there it was. OVER MY BACKYARD! UP CLOSE AND VERY PERSONAL!
Did the flight crew see anything? Is it a coincidence the blimp flies over my neighborhood every spring? You decide.
I will be sharing this post at Blue Monday and Outdoor Wednesday.
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!
