This morning I realized I’ve barely shared any of my pictures since May! What the heck have I been doing?
Oh yeah, working, adventuring, breaking my laptop…you know…the usual.

So anyway here’s a boat-load of them (in no particular order).

I’m proud to report that no frogs or toads were harmed in the making of this photo series. Not one single amphibian was squished by my tires!

The Lighthouse

In my spare time I volunteer for the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. Sometimes we get to see some really cool stuff on the water.

Electrons, Airplanes, and Duckies…oh my….

There is a lot to do in Coastal Virginia. A lot. Maybe too much. In fact every weekend I have at least three different events to choose from and this past weekend was no different. My calender had the following things written down, “Friday– Warbirds at the Beach/ Chesapeake Jubilee/ Blues Brothers Show/ Tidewater car show. Saturday– Jefferson Lab Open house/ Giant Rubber Duck arrives at Chrysler Museum/ Warbirds at the Beach airshow. Sunday– Warbirds at the beach/ SVLAF club meeting.”

Naturally I didn’t have the time or money for all those things but here’s some pictures of what I did get done!

When I arrived at the airshow I immediately went looking for my friends Wes and Karen and I found them with Abbott and Costello!

This isn't my photo! I'm borrowing it from the Ultimate Abbott and Costello Tribute Show!

I have a yearly tradition of taking a photo with these guys!

For the first time ever I actually sat down to watch the airshow. Usually I wander around socializing and checking out the reenactors. I’m really glad I sat down to watch because the show was fantastic….there were even paratroopers.
