Las Vegas Air Show

Last weekend was the Aviation Nation airshow at Nellis AFB.  BB hadn't been to an airshow before and C loves airplanes, so we packed up and went to the show on Sunday.  I've never felt part of this community, but at least for an afternoon I sort of did. 

ps.  We saw a couple of Thunderbirds pilots.  They are so young.  Young and beautiful and lovely, with everything in front of them.  It reminded me of just how much our young servicemen and women are sacrificing for us.  Also of how pathetic it is that this country has turned Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veteran's Day into reasons for sales and time off work, rather than times of thankfulness and reflection.
