When you see pictures like this picture, you would assume that whoever is taking this picture would be at an airport.
Aaaaahhhhhhh,no. THIS picture, of an airliner, was taken in my front yard! This picture was taken with just a point-and-shoot camera. No special effects or nothing.It was really THAT close to the ground! What is really spooky is this airliner circled our house 3 time! 3 TIMES!!!!!In the back of my mind I was thinking about 9/11. Was it going to happen again? Not that a terrorist is plotting on blowing up MY house. I'm not THAT important. lol. We have a uranium plant,chemical plants, and many good places to bomb within a 50 mile radius from where we live.
I kept wondering, is it happening again? Is it going to happen withing a few miles from my home? Am I prepared if this is a LARGE scale attack? My logical side of my brain kept saying to the illogical side of my brain,"This is nothing. The pilot is just circling the navigational beacon that is 1 mile from our house. Maybe just practicing." The illogical side of my brain was saying,"What if?"(Maybe this is my logical side.)
I did find out later that there were tornado warnings for Columbus. I guess the airport was having this airliner circle until the storms were over. They have never done this over OUR house before, but, I guess there's a first time for everything.
Now that that excitement is over, we have been very busy around here. Butchering chickens, making apple butter, cleaning our new house so we can move into it. Yep, very busy. I'll try not to use that as an excuse to not blog. lol
So until next time,
