BLUE ANGELS AND THE BLACK RIDER
Today we watched the Blue Angels (who I love) take off from Boeing field, which is right next to my new pad...(Remember what I said about it being quiet? Oh well..) anyway-it was interesting to see how many people turned up to watch it...this was just to watch the take off...they fly very low right over your head...anyhow- there was such an amazing group of diverse people that I was actually amazed.
As I was watching the jets,(there was an F-16 doing barrel rolls as well) I had two thoughts..one was "This is so f-ing COOL!" and the other was "Imagine these kinds of things flying over your city dropping bombs". That's a very simplistic statement but when you get a glimpse of military might it's pretty damn sobering. It also makes you think "It's odd how very beautiful our weapons are."
