It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Keep An Eye On The Sky

Blogger continues to be F*ed  up and I have no patience left.
I am sitting here in a too warm room with a window view of a pine forest and dark grey skies and the sound of US Navy Jets flying overhead.
It is a thrilling sight and sound to me .. I am a sucker for this sort of thing.

There will be an Airshow today .. anyone in the Jacksonville Florida area should try to see it .. I have the best seats , they go right over our homes ..

You should have seen me yesterday , I would be in the house, busy work, hear them coming, drop everything and dash like a lunatic out to the lanai .. or out the front door and stand there looking up like a simpleton ... it was thrilling and I only saw a couple.

Those jets look small when you look up at them in the sky but they flew so low yesterday overhead, they are massive ! and those pilots are Fabulous !!! just amazing.

So keep an eye on the sky !!!

ps and Auto Correct has gone haywire and keeps slipping in odd words that I have to go back and remove .... why ? why ?????

We used to live in the Sierra foothills east of Sacramento, CA. There was an air force base in the valley where they would do "touch and go" exercises with the B-52 bombers. One day I was out in the middle of our property and one of them flew overhead so low that I could make out every detail of its underside. It was like the scene from "North by Northwest" where Cary Grant is running for his life from that plane but on a much larger scale. I bet the pilots got a good laugh out of that.

I just stand there with a huge goofy grin on my face :)

It was pretty awesome, I admit. We were on 58 acres and those planes would just materialize out of nowhere. I think they were flying below radar detection. All of a sudden there would be this gigantic black "bird" looming out of the hills to the east.
