No pasta by choice. ‘Tis the season. Hee hee.

Long Day

The Cat and The Mouse took in an airshow yesterday. An adventure to be sure.

Fly By

The Blue Angels was the highpoint.

Equipment Plane

Unsung heroes of the stars.

On the Line

The Cat and The Mouse tickets included food and drink. Let’s just say the food and drink were less than expected. Highpoint of the food was the poi.


Thick and just barely turning sour. The Mouse ate three containers. Mmm.

The rest of the food and the logistics were meh.

After the show, took us forever to get off base. Parking/traffic control was less than meh.

Late dinner at Ruby Tuesday.
