Navy jets flying 500 m.p.h. just two hundred feet from where you’re standing.
Can you imagine how thunderously loud that would be?
Well, Steve and the Dare Challenge guys (where Steve is a board member) didn’t have to do too much imagining last week because Steve took them all on their annual Dare County Bombing Range field trip where they got to watch Navy pilots practice dropping fake ordnance.
As you can probably guess, Steve was in absolute heaven during the outing; the guys were just a little pumped, too.
Dare Challenge posted some pictures from the day on their Facebook page and included this message:
We had an awesome day today, Thanks Pastor Steve, for taking the guys out to spend the day with you at the Bombing Range. We truly appreciate all you do for us, It’s an honor to have you as a member of Dare Challenge.
We love our Dare Challenge guys!
I took a little meander through the side roads on my way to my infusion last Tuesday. Although I was a few miles per hour below 500, I still got to enjoy the same Carolina blue sky as those Navy pilots.
That’s one of the things I love about a good sky. It’s available for everyone’s delighted enjoyment.
I was happy to get an OBX (Outer Banks) license plate recently.
These can only be gotten at the DMV in Manteo so they’re a coveted piece of metal for those who live at (and/or love) the OBX. When we got our new (to us) car last summer, we didn’t get OBX plates but since they had to be renewed recently, Steve surprised me by getting the plates he knew I wanted.
Love my hubby. Love being an OBX-er.
so here is a photo of her posing in fine Shahrazad fashion. She is such a doggone darling doggie.
we watched the eclipse last week.
During the eclipse, there were guys out in the church parking lot laying asphalt. We were so excited to finally be able to redo our 30-year old parking lot and cover up the holes that were so big they could have disappeared a Volkswagen.
Sarah is coming home this Friday for Labor Day weekend. I am always so thankful when that little gray car carrying its lovely driver points itself in our direction.
A bear. Steve saw a bear.
He was out at the R.C. flying field yesterday and looked up just in time to see this umbulating ursidea meander by.
Navy jets. Country roads. Coveted Metal. Dog. Eclipse. Asphalt. Daughter. Bear.
That sums up the past week for me.
What sort of short or long list sums up YOUR week?
Thrift stores, fuzzy socks
and conversing with my Yorkie
are all on the list of things I love.
