OT: That was the dogs name.
Yes! Drone delivery? Ha! Mine came at precisely 7:59:45 this morning, as the AMAZING B-2 Spirit bomber flew over my house on its way to do its flyover at the Rose Parade at 8:00. My cats looked up as its roar got louder, finally practically shaking the house. I love it! I've already replayed its parade flyover twice.
Thanks for asking, @Rico ANDROID!
Uh, I know how you guys work, you're not fooling me!
@almath ! see how much LUV you're spreading already on 2019!
I must have been farther away when the B-2 flew over Fenway Park at a day game @MoodyBlues.
Looked like the "BatPlane" from the comics
Ah yes! that's the trick! you're "not" supposed to catch on or think somethings up! That way the Surprise Party will be a BIG HIT!
@dontpanicbobby can you distract @Trey (aka clem) while we set things up?
Yes, very much like that! I haven't gone to the Rose Parade for a few years now, but when I did...the bomber flyovers were just goosebump-inducing!
Thats right! you just moved back home! Is this your first parade in yrs?
I thought I saw a Chinook @Unforgiven
No, no, dear, I moved back in 2006, and went to several parades before first being knocked down by a brain tumor, its surgery, and its aftermath; then, more recently--when I was absent from AF for 2+ years--I nearly died from sepsis, spending six months on IV antibiotics, and seven surgeries, in the hospital. For a long time afterward, I was too weak to type, or do anything but stay in bed watching TV; BORING!
Just BTW, I grew up in Pasadena, three blocks south of Colorado Blvd (where the parade is). We'd get up early, walk three blocks north (yeah, kids actually WALKED back then!), and watched the parade. We later moved next door to Arcadia, which is where I am now. I took the long way home, though--I lived in Florida (my husband's home state), New Mexico, and Texas before finally...thankfully--and permanently moving back home.
oh my i am so sorry you went through so much! And so glad you overcame life changing illnesses! I too have had several rounds in the boxing ring since joining the forum. You are a trooper! And you're gotten to live in some of the greatest states .
Thanks. You're very sweet.
I'm glad you seem to be doing well, too. If you want to tell me about what you've dealt with, please do.
Hope everyone had a great holiday!
I'm so happy they are over what about you Clem?
Glad they are over too! I did have a nice time but still and all
You bet. I'm a bit more round now that I ate my way through the holidays.
Did you have any good eats over the holiday Rico?
Rico is hiding out
What up what up @Mikestony maybe this will get him out of the tow thread!
