Here are some photos from the recent Patriotic Festival at Virginia Beach. The Blue Angels were not there this year, of course, because they are not anywhere. The government is trying to save money while it goes bankrupt. It’s sort of like giving a drowned man swimming lessons only more catastrophic for the whole world.
I went down to the pier to take most of these and decided to get a tan while I was there. As I result I nearly burned off the top of my head. But that’s just the way it goes when you are getting older and forget the warnings on the suntan lotion bottles. Except for the small hole which I suppose will never go away everything looks as good as new up there now.
It has rained a lot the past few days. A tropical storm passed through here and flash flood warnings were announced. But tonight things are looking better and by the time everyone goes back to work on Monday the sun should be shining with a cool breeze and low humidity.
Anyway, here are the photos. These guys and girls really know how to fly. I wish I could fly. I’ve tried to learn several times but my arms always get too tired before I ever get off the ground.
Drum roll please.
