Yesterday was a beautiful day here!  We have finally arrived at a nice, DRY week-end.  Early yesterday morning the skies over our house sounded like we were in the flight pattern of DFW.

We live far from a major airport so I kept wondering what was going on.

Yesterday evening after hubs got home from his office, we decided to drive down the road apiece on the river to see what was happening.

We encountered about 13 airplanes (old looking) doing all sorts of maneuvers in the sky.  Each following the other!  It was really neat to see.  This morning there was an article in our local paper about the planes who got together for the air show.   They have had two beautiful days to fly.




The river was very beautiful and peaceful yesterday evening.  I could just sit and watch the water roll by for hours.  I must be getting old.............

The scenic river pictures are GORGEOUS! Makes me want to curl up under one of the trees, have a picnic lunch and read a good book. You sure do live in a beautiful part of the country, Judy!

Neat pictures!
We're in town, and Dad and I took R & A to the river this afternoon. I could sit there for hours, too. I've always loved the river. R & A had fun "swimming" in it...I think I must be getting old because that water felt WAY too cold for me! I don't know how we used to stand to dunk in that cold water when we were kids!

We got to see lots of planes here yesterday, too. Glad they weren't doing any of those moves!! The lady pilot on the flight from Mem to DC was a little "brakey" on landing. That was enough for me!
