My Latest Fabulous Adventure!

Summer is in full swing and the Fourth of July is rapidly approaching. If you are lucky, like me, family is arriving. Plans and preparations are being made.

Mr Wonderful, my hubby has taken time off from work to spend time with my family. The guys are gone today, on an all day fishing trip, so I have a moment to share a bit of what we have been doing so far.

Mr Wonderful works for the AA baseball team, in his second job. As a TV guy, he doesn’t have the usual 9 to 5 working day and he picks up any freelance work whenever he can. TV people are a strange breed and they have a passion for their work. One of the guys he works with is in the Navy and in the business of promoting the Blue Angels. His photography is amazing and we were given the VIP treatment at a recent practice session. My brother, Steve, is down from Michigan, so we were especially excited to be able to share this with him.

I felt as if the show was performed just for us!

As many times as I have seen the Blue Angels, this is the first time I have been able to meet the pilots.

Afterwards, we were given a tour of The Blues office area. We even stepped into the debriefing room.

I would like to send out a special thank you to Mike for sharing his time with us and making us feel important…

and to The Blues, thank you so much the sacrifices you make.

Our next stop was a visit to the Florabama, on the Florida/Alabama state line. Seems like something interesting is always going on here and this week it is a beached aircraft from the upcoming movie, “The U.S.S. Indianapolis: Men of Courage,” starring Nicolas Cage. The plane landed, the producers were able to get their shots, then the plane began taking on water. They beached it and now begins the process of salvaging the damaged plane.

We ended the day with a dip in the pool and boy were we ready for it. The weather was typical for Florida, hot, humid and hazy. The sun shines and the clouds dot the sky. Sometimes cloud cover is a blessing, the only shade available.

What have you been up to? Do you have any special plans for the Fourth of July?

  1. Looks like you’re having a great time, Sherry! I’ve watched the Blue Angels–they’re amazingly precise.

    As for the fourth, we’re having a bbq with the family and swimming/floating on the Hood Canal for the weekend. It’s been way hot here–in the mid-to-high 90s–more like late August weather…

    Happy and safe 4th to you and yours!

    • I love the Blues. Happy to hear you are having a great fourth weekend. Sounds like your weather is the same as ours. 🙂

    • We were able to get some great shots that we have never had the opportunity to get before. Loved it. Yes, you are here and I hope you are having fun. Are you? LOL
