So the Family went to an Air Show a couple weeks ago.
I stayed home.
~I think that was when I went on my glorious bike ride.~
Several reasons stopped me from attending with the rest of them.
Don't get me wrong- I love adventure and seeing new sights.
(Part of me even secretly thought I should go.
You only have Just One Life- right?)
But I'm truly not a fan of Flight.
You know why?
There are just too many things that can go wrong.
For instance, look at this:
~~If just ONE wire was out of place....~~
And I have NEVER been good at science....but honestly~
How IS it possible for something this large to float in the sky?
I see no feathers.
And that's just the worry from ground.
What about when you get up here?
And I now have proof that planes actually can flip over.
~I can do that well enough on my bike, thanks.~
What about the Traffic up there?
Do you realize just how many planes are in the sky above us at any given moment?
And not one traffic sign.
Then there's the matter of the parachute.
IF you are lucky enough to own one.
And you better hope they don't get tangled.
And is it me...
or does this not look like it belongs in water?
The noise, the crowds, the stress and danger....
No~ I was happy I stayed home.
Now, if someone gave me one of these to ride....
(All above pictures were taken by my son and/or daughter...
who braved the noise and heat of the day.
