Call us stupid!!!


Please call a doctor, I think the heat has burned brain cells. Or maybe it's the solitary confinement in air-conditioning with all the blinds pulled. This is how a stupid idea is born..Saturday..family sitting together...."Air show is this weekend"......Oh I would like to see that!.....Me too.....I have to do the wash and grocery shop.....ahhhh but it's so darn hot.....well maybe we can just sit in the car and watch it?......That's an idea, downtown is going to be crazy......Hey we could go to the Port, just south of the show.....yeah it's on the lake?.....or we could just try to get downtown? Call me tomorrow and we'll see.
Tomorrow~
Well yuwannago? Yeah, I'm fixing the faucet, but I should be done by then.(this by the way is NOT me).....Hi Mom, wannago watch the air show the Thunderbirds are there, we aren't staying long.....Oh, I'd like that.....pick me up by 1:00pm....(the hottest part of the day has not started till 2:00).....sure, I'll just beep....I'll bring water and Gateraide, don't forget a hat!!!!....I won't....
Beep!!!!!
As I step outside...Holey crap is it hot out....Sweat immediatly starts pouring down my head....Hi Mom, Hi Honey, is Cheryl coming? No she is shopping and washing clothes, but Scott wants to go.....Here comes Scott carrying a baggie with a pipe in it? Oh Oh don't tell me....yeah I put my finger through the goose neck trap..it is really rotten.....Wow, I can relate!!!.....
The ride.
Go this way....why not just go downtown....hey look there's planes there...where....watch the road...I am....where are you going? Downtown, where do you think?.....aren't we going to the port? ......It doesn't look that busy here....we pull into a place...right on the lake, but it is a supper clubs parking lot and the parking dude asks me where I am headed....uuuuuhhhhhh to the air show....park over there across the street...Ok thanks....so I start heading over there and see an empty spot and pull in quickly run out of the car and sit in the grass. The dude in orange starts walking over to the car and mom and my brother are playing chess in the trunk???? Dude in orange gets distracted or sees that the lady is old and used a cane (her old lady prop) turns and starts going back. I am laying in the hot grass in a piece of shade the size of a nickle laughing at both of them. Here comes the payback, my mom brought a blanket she got for her first communion, so we layed that out and I thought my brother was helping her down and she sits on top of me....it's not like I'm not hot enough? Mom? Move over, I am sweating enough for both of us......Well I can't....so I move over...meanwhile nothing is going on in the sky. Let's move the blanket over there, it's more shade, now I help mom up and she digs her three long nails into me...ouch...what? You have ginsu nails, mom!!! Oh sorry...we move the blanket and I help her to sit down, now mind you my mom is 83 and I am helping her sit on the grass...so I am going to grab her around her waist and get a hand full of her boob!!! eeeeewwwwwww mom boob!!! So now we are both laughing so hard she is rolling around on the blanket. Nothing is happening in the sky. There is a hot breeze like that of a Dragon breathing on us, and I already drank the first bottle of water. After two hours of sitting in various positions a plane goes over and they do their jet things and formations and are we assume in the middle of it and my brother says...hey we better go before this thing lets out and we get stuck down here. What? Now? When what I really meant was...why the hell did we come down here anyway? I am home in the air...sweet air....I definetly fried brain cells....

Oh my, I can't believe you went out in that heat!!!! I saw the Thunderbirds too but, as they were flying over Kro-Sha on my have to the car to go home! I heard them several times when I was in there knitting and then saw them It was cool and much easier then going downtown. Man this heat better stop soon. Th8s is like when I'm in Florida!!!

I loved going to airshows as well as a kid. I grew up in Michigan and we would travel around the state during the summer and make a point to hit at least one airshow.

Not to lighten the mood, but I found some airshow footage of a Thunderbird accident where the pilot ejected just before crashing. Miraculously he survived with only minor injuries… The footage is in two perspectives, from the ground and a cockpit cam on the pilot. It's quite amazing!
