My friend and neighbor, Tracy, wrote in her blog just this week that not much happens in our little community. She talked about going to the local ice cream store after a soccer game being the big event of the week. I laughed when I read that but thought little about it until yesterday when I came head to head with a perfect example of how really unexciting life is here in our little hamlet.
As I was driving home from a lunch appointment in another town I happened to look up and see the something unusual in the sky overhead. I immediately pulled off the road and called my husband telling him to run outside and look up. (Notice that I pulled off the road before using my cell phone, law abiding citizen that I am).
I then pulled out my camera and took several pictures. After I had taken my pictures, I got back in my car and drove on home. It seems that on every street corner, in front of every store or restaurant, in yards and playgrounds all over town, I saw people pointing and gazing upward. The citizen's were agog at the sight.
And what, you might ask, was creating so much excitement. It's a plane, it's a bird - It's the Goodyear Blimp. Now that's more exciting than having ice cream on Main Street, or is it?
