Air Show 3

Here comes another one

This is the B-17's big brother

The B-29

It was one of these guys that dropped that first A-bomb and ended the war.

She made a few passes so folks could get a good look.

And lastly…
Back on the ground.

Air Show 2

One of the things The Fuzz liked about this Air Show was getting to see some of these old warbirds in the air.

Here come one now

And now a bit closer…
This one is an icon of the 2nd World  War.

The B-17 of course!

The partial cloud cover made for some great pix

You may notice she's got some company in this one…
But that will be for a later post.

And one last look at her on the ground

Air Show

The Fuzz was fortunate to be invited to visit family and attend the Andrews Air Show up at Andrews Air Force Base.
Of course he brought his camera along.
There may be a few pix here.

For this post we'll have a few shots of a P-51 Mustang.

And here's a closer look

We'll see this guy again later…

But next time we'll have a look at one of his bigger brothers.

Timid Wonderment

Timid Wonderment

When the door has finally opened
The lid at last is cracked
The dim light
Now bright
To the unaccustomed eyes

Fearfully compelled
Impossible to hide
In this darkness
Any longer

Shielded eyes
Trembling fingers
Halting steps

Face now lifting
In Timid Wonderment

Street Musicians

Here's some pix of some local street musicians at a recent local festival.
This guy's cigar-box guitar sounded pretty good.
(Guess he might have been a little more "official")
And this little gal could really work that fiddle.

It's nice to hear people making music live.

Just a Little Guy

The Fuzz saw this fellow on a walk down by the river the other day.
At first He thought it was a fly and wondered what he was up to on the flower.

Instant Storage

It's been awhile The Fuzz admits, but he did finally show up again.
And so, here we go!

So what is going on here anyway?

Well The Fuzz's Sweetie wanted a place to keep her art supplies, cloth stash etc. that was a bit handier than the Old Place in town…
About a 25 mi. round trip!

The Fuzz helped get the place ready for it, but was a bit concerned about getting the thing in there.

He figured they'd bring it on a roll-back truck and have to back it in somehow.

It did come on a roll-back trailer, but it was not necessary to back it in!

The guy dropped it off right out on the road.

Then he picked up one end with his "Mule"…
And placed some wheels under it…
Picked up the other end and just pulled it all in like a Little Red Wagon.
(Or maybe a Big Red Wagon)

After that it was just a ride down the driveway…
And into position.

At this point there was a bit of discusion regarding exactly how high to mount it on the blocks.
Once that was settled the thing was jacked up, wheels removed…
And everything arranged just right.
Here you can get a better look at his remarkable little "Mule".

So now all that remains is for her to get the inside put together how she wants.
