We went to the airport today to see the old warbirds from the Wings of Freedom Tour land. The planes on tour include a B-17 Flying Fortress, a B-24 Liberator, a B-25 Mitchell and a P-51C Mustang. My dad is a hard-care airplane nut and was a Corsair mechanic in the Marines, so some of his affection for these old girls has rubbed off on me. Love the sound of those big ol' engines!

A good year for dogwoods

The dogwoods are blooming big again this year. Spork did an informal count on one side of our property and counted 87 blooming trees. It's a pretty impressive show, but my camera skills don't do them justice.
