A Blue Perspective

I've been in the engine shop at an air base for the last week. Tuesday morning I had the pleasure of getting a personal tour of the Thunderbirds... watching them do the ground practice for their show, being on the tarmac as they taxied off to start their practice show, and waving to the pilots as they passed by in their jets.

I thought, "Bucket list check off!"

And I thought my kids would think this was cool.

I texted Bones on Thursday morning when I finally had time, 'Hey, I spent Tuesday morning out on the flightline with the Thunderbirds."

And the reply I got back was, "Did you see any Blue Angels?"


Made me laugh. They are evidently the grand offspring of a Navy family.

As an old retired Navy guy, it's good to see the boys have their priorities right. ;)

Very discerning boys, my grandsons.
