Look in the sky … it's a bird … it's a plane
No, it’s not Super Man … it was what I suspect were Air Force transport helicopters!
I was inside and heard a deep rumbling. A truck out on the highway? No, it kept getting closer. Perhaps a helicopter heading to the hospital? No, it was way too loud. I decided I’d better go outside to see just what was making that noise … and saw 4 huge Air Force transport helicopters (Chinooks?) heading straight toward me! At first, I was so awestruck that I just stood there watching them come my direction … finally I came to my senses and ran inside to get my camera. Unfortunately, by the time I got my camera, they’d passed overhead and were continuing on to the south (I assume to the Air Force base about 20 miles south of here). So I had to settle for these shots … I zoomed in a little on the second shot and even more on the final shot … but these photos do not come close to doing justice to the awesome spectacle. I wish I could have gotten a shot of these heading toward me … spectacular.
I may or may not have a busy day ahead. I’ve got a doctor’s appointment at 8:30, and I scheduled some time with a trainer at our gym (part of the membership) … I want to work out on the weight machines, but I suspect that I need some assistance so I can use them properly. I may, however, have to reschedule that appointment as DD is hoping to be able to have lunch with a friend (her friend has cancer and is in the midst of a serious depression), so I’ll watch the Ts. Either way, it looks to be a great day here at Chez Nana!
