The Navy’s Blue Angels are here in Millington for the Mid-South Air Show to be held this weekend. They have been flying around all day rehearsing. It looks to be an awesome show! On the way home this afternoon people were parked along side roads, in parking lots, in fields to watch the planes as they flew and climbed and circled and fell and twisted and turned in a beautiful, albeit noisy, aerial ballet.
You may notice that I’ve deleted some comments. The ones I delete are those that contain unsolicited links or promotions to items/services/websites that are trying to sell something. That’s not what LOT(L) is about.
Louisiana license plates are everywhere! Memphis must be a popular place for evacuating. At least three Navy commands have moved here from New Orleans. If they don’t return it will mean a significant financial loss for the city.
We have electricity in our home!! Yeah!! Today!! Great, now we can start paying for the electricity that we aren’t home to use. At least we’ll have air conditioning and washer and dryer when we go home to check on things in a week or so. Maybe cable, too.
We’ve watched a couple episodes of the new sci-fi programs on TV, Threshold, Invasion, Surface. They’re all pretty interesting, with some good story lines if you’re a sci-fi fan. Also, a new show called “Criminal Minds” with Mandy Patinkin is also pretty good. I’m actually getting to watch some of these, since I’m not in school in the evenings up here like I was in NOLA.
Our friends arrived this evening. We had a wonderful dinner at the original Corky's restaurant, followed by ice cream for dessert Cold Stone Creamery, a neat little place that makes ice cream fresh every day, and puts in it whatever you want for toppings or actually rolls it into the ice cream, like strawberries, or blueberries, or M&Ms. Finally we capped the night with coffee from Starbucks back in the hotel and lots of chit chat. It was a wonderful pick-me-up to have such close friends show up here in Memphis. Breakfast tomorrow will be nice, but it will be sad to say goodbye once again.
Please pray for all those missing children, that they will be reunited with their families quickly.
God bless us all, and good night.
