Not so much Sun & Fun

Tuesday Hubby headed out for his annual pilgrimage to the Sun & Fun Fly-in and Air Show in Lakeland, FA. It's a huge event...thousands of planes, pilots camping out, exhibits, air plane stuff for sale, demonstrations of new products, air shows....a flying enthusiast dream! They had a tornado there today. About 50 planes were tossed around & torn up, tents collasped & blown away, more than 70 people taken to hospitals. I was totally oblivious to all of this...was completely absorbed in sharing a manicure/pedicure date with Durham Daughter who came by this afternoon on her way to Charleston. She got a call from him, saying he was fine...we didn't have a clue what he was talking about. I'd have been freaking out if we'd heard the news on the radio or television. Thankful Hubby and his plane are alright. He & 3 guys parked near him (complete strangers) were able to get off of the airfield and found a hotel room. What a story he will have to tell! I'm so glad it has a happy ending. He needs to come home now!


  1. Thank God he is okay. Whew. Cannot wait to hear the whole story. He'll have to do a GUEST BLOGGER post ;-) hehe. XOXO

  2. I heard about that on the news today. So glad that he is OK. How scary. Yes, you will have to let us know more about it. Glad you had a fun day with your daughter. Wish I was heading to Charleston. Love that city!!! Have a nice weekend. I am going away with girlfriends to a mountain getaway in Virginia. Can't wait! Love & blessings from NC!
