This week’s theme for our blog circle is JUMP or IN THE AIR and I had a great idea for it…except that weather and travel have hampered it coming to fruition this week. At the first break in the rain when I get back I will still be doing the shot in my head and I will post an update. For now I am going to have to show you a picture from my Into the Wild Blue Yonder sets. We are an Air Force family and jets is what we know. So here is my image for this week’s theme:
This image was of my husband’s final flight at Nellis AFB. Fini Flights are always bitter sweet. Sweet because you get to see your loved one fly by, land and then ceremoniously climb out of the jet complete with water hose spray down and a champagne shower. That part is really neat to witness. The bitter part is obviously knowing that they are saying goodbye to friends and the awesomeness of being in that cockpit and airspace. Sometimes that goodbye is just temporary until the next assignment but there comes a day when it will be the last time he climbs down that ladder…that one will be especially hard.
Please go now and check out Melinda’s take on this week’s theme at her blog. Next week’s theme is WATER so good thing we are flooded down here…oy.
