While You Were Out – Getting Around: Part 1

While-You-Were-Out

Okay, okay, I've been away for a while. I have a bunch of stories to tell, but Cora's away for a few days, so I'm learning my ropes as 'Single Dad' right now. With time of the essence, I'm going to plow through some pictures I took while I was out and about.

Now, most of these were taken with my Blackberry's craptastic camera, so I apologize right off for the quality. I tried to clean them up in Photoshop as much as possible.

The first set of photos are from the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Shortly after the wedding, my best man, T-Bone was up in the area, working the show for his oil company. I met him up in Milwaukee, and we carpooled up to Oshkosh where he went over some final setup for the show. And I left my good camera back in my car in Milwaukee.

A little taste of America

An ultra, ultra light

You think this is a small plane?

You're SOOOO right!

A blast from the past…

Modern Sci-Fi

Never been to the show in Oshkosh before. But it was a good time. And the best part was hanging out with a good friend that I don't see often enough.

And as a bonus, after the set-up was complete, we went down to Milwaukee and hung out with some college friends for a while. It was really good to catch up with everyone, and while I was on the road a great deal on that Saturday, it was really relaxing.

And it's always a great day when you get to hold a friend's baby for the first time.

I would have loved to see a picture of you trying to get into that tiny plane!

A brother's friend flies his own 1920's byplane...with only one eye (due to cancer). He's offered to take me up but I politely declined. I prefer 747s.

LOVE the pic of you and the baby! Just wait til you're a granddad! ; )

Every time I see you holding a baby my ovaries jump for joy. Lordy. I'm just as freaked out by that statement as you are. :-S
