Good Times

This weekend was the summer birthday bash for Amy's family, so we were in Tulsa helping everyone celebrate. I like to think it's just not a party unless we show up.

Amy got lots of fun things for her birthday which is on July 23rd (I know the year but shall not like to blab it on the blogoshpere). Anyway we really had a lot of fun, and we got to see our niece, who is walking (we last saw her in February, she sure is growing up fast).

Yesterday afternoon my BIL and I returned to our childhood by visiting a favorite pasttime of mine here is a hint.

Any guesses? -- I will share the answer at the end of the post.

This week I've decided to focus on crazy things in my world. As most of you know I work as an airline pilot, and as such am always seeing a lot of interesting people, and activities. I shall share some of these things that make me laugh, or that I find most fascinating about the wonderful world of aviation.

You can look forward to a story of a lighting strike, and the drama of what happens when a tire goes flat on a airport operations vehicle (with pictures). Also a heartwarming, funnier than funny comment card from a customer who was not really fond of his assigned seat. Honestly that's all I've got for now but I will try to come up with more before the week is over.

Have fun -- and oh yeah I almost forgot the answer you've all been waiting for. We went to...

That's right we went to (as Mary Murphy would say) BIG SPLASH, YES WE DID. Matt and I are most grateful to the kids who helped us figure out how the lines worked therefore saving loads of time. Sadly after only about 90 minutes at the park it was closed due to lightning, fortunately we had done all there was to do in 90 minutes. Next time we need to go to a real park like...

Glad you guys had a great time with your family in T-Town this weekend. Next time you're in town we'll have to get together! That's funny that you guys went to Big Splash, talk about blast from the past. Doug was happy to have gotten to see Matt as well and see that he is doing well.
