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!
Am I really 50+? Life is good. My fortunes include an amazing husband, four fabulous daughters (2 birth, 2 bonus), two wonderful son-in-laws and three adorable grandsons. I am a teacher and owner of a home-based business. I started Basement Bags, a custom sewing/embroidery boutique, in 2005 and am working hard to monogram the world! I am usually too loud, always on a diet, passionate about sewing/embroidery, love to read, appreciate a good glass of White Zen, and live for school vacations. I am thankful for hair color and shapeware. I love 'Mexican dates' with my family, summers at the lake, thunder storms and sleeping late on Saturday! "Home" is my favorite place on earth.
