The Blue Angels And Air Force One

My bee sting is all better. Thank you for the nice comments.  One of my greyhound friends in St. Louis stepped on a bee yesterday.  I bet that really hurt.  I got stung on the leg and that was bad enough.

Saturday, the folks visited a scooter store and ordered a "trunk" for Buddy.  Mama will be getting rid of the milk crate.  The milk crate holds a lot, but the trunk will have a lock on it.  She will be able to make additional stops after buying things.  She can't do that with the milk crate.  The trunk will look so much nicer than the milk crate, too. She had planned on buying one when she first bought him but the store didn't have any in stock, so she went with the milk crate.

They then stopped at a restaurant that was on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  The restaurant is called Dirty Oscar's Annex.  Mama was disappointed that they serve breakfast until 2 p.m.  She had wanted something other than breakfast.  However, the food turned out to be really good and they may make a return visit for dinner.

They then visited the Flight Museum.  Mama was really not looking forward to going there.  However, two things made it fun.  The Blue Angels were performing nearby and they did several flyovers and landed at the air strip there.  The other thing that was really neat was that they toured Air Force One.  It was used by Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon.

The following are just various pictures of the Flight Museum.
This is a mobile kitchen that the Marines use.  It serves 500 Marines.

 Our last picture is something unusual.  What is this?

This is a toilet that is used in space.  There was a video that showed how it was used.  BOL!  See the bars near the top?  They put those over their thighs so that they do not float away. They put their feet in the straps at the bottom.  It seems like a lot of work.

All Is Well

Tropical Storm Cindy only brought us a few light showers.  Mom and I walked in the rain a few times, but it wasn't bad at all for us. ...
