  9. Super cute pix of both Ally and of listener's granddaughter #1. Can't believe how big the latter has gotten. Oh, they grow so fast.

    We had a jet from Wright-Patt AFB fly so low over the house this morning that my brother called me from the basement level to see if we still had a second story. I hate when those hot-shot pilots do that!! >:o

    This one made a loud boom, like a sonic boom, a *really loud* sonic boom. The last one, several years ago flew so low the whole house shook HARD and I really thought we were dead meat.

    Probably some 4th of July air show, but I wish they'd keep their damn air shows in the arena, and NOT over residential neighborhoods.

  10. Ours are from Norfolk. They use us for practice (evidently our topography is something like Iraq/Afghanistan). And they have ceilings they're not supposed to drop below. But always some kid can't resist scaring the horses and the cows. A bigger problem is the chickens won't lay for two or three days after, and the turkeys pile up in the corners of their houses, killing the ones on the bottom. The county actually has a number to call, and the Navy does pay up.

  11. I hate airplanes. Sometimes the planes from Westover air base fly so low I am certain they're going to crash. So far none has as far as I know, but that doesn't keep me from cowering and covering my ears. Someday I'd like to live far, far away from airport flyways and air bases. BRR, but jets make a terrible noise!

  12. As the armed services go, the Navy's pretty honorable.

    It's been a very long time, but I thought Norfolk was mostly surface, not air? I suppose they have to practice someplace. *sigh* At least I don't live in a practice range. Thank Heaven for small mercies.

  13. Has anybody heard from Donna lately? What about Nordy?

    Cheryl's on FB as is TC. She sometimes comments on my status or links. *sheepish grin* She was slightly concerned about all the Engelbert stuff I was posting a couple weeks back. Does anybody have her blog address?

  14. I actually think we got picked 'cause there are so few of us (to complain. . . .). Don't know *where* they actually come from, lol!, just that Norfolk knows, and that's who we call. The lady there told me that one young hot shot was flying up a river, way too low, and a house built on the cliffs had every window facing the river cracked/shattered. Cost them tens of thousands of bucks to replace 'em. No word if they took it out of the hot shot's salary or not, though.
