A perk to the military

I know that flyboy will be on his way home from work soon. I haven't talked to him today or yesterday for that matter, I haven't received a text message or an email, and no I don't have esp tendencies. How do I know you ask?

His plane just did a fly by over our house.

How cool is that? The boys get giddy watching daddy's airplane fly by and hell even I think its neat. Especially as the plane rolls a bit to "wave". Really I dare you civilians to top THAT one!

  2. That is seriously SO F***ING COOL!! You gotta take a little video of that to preserve the memory - definitely has the makings of one those epic family vignettes.

    "well back when your grandpa was in the Marines, he used to do a fly-by to wave to me and uncle dash"

    :-D

  4. I think that totally rocks!

    Totally NOT the same thing, but Will used to drive for Coke and he had the route in the town I work in one day. He blew his horn as he went by my office and I got to wave. It's the closest us civilians have. There's a blog post buried somewhere about it.

    Now, when Will gets to bring his Bradley home and rat-tat-tats the words "I'm home" on the front door with his rounds, I'll let you know.

    I want to see the video. Pleeeaassse

  13. Yeah, my husband comes home in his big, bad Nissan Maxima. I can't even begin to top you.

    I can try to say thank you a million ways to you and your husband for supporting our country, but I am not sure it would be sufficient enough... but I will try... Thank you and thank you again...

    Awesome blog... Kayce

  19. Okay, you know I have to give you shit for this right???

    HA HA...Us civilians sound like we are "those with the disease".
    I especially like this comment:
    "No way the civilians can top that one! :)"

    Ha ha...classic. I guess my husband-who shapes the minds of our future with sills in math and teaches teamwork and sportsmanship by coaching and donating his time can not top flying over my house. But I don't want to top anyone. I'm cool with my happy, little, TI-83 owning family. To me, thats the tops :)

    To each his own. Civilians included :)
