A Look At Our Independence Day ~ We Promise Not To Scare You With Fireworks...

That's right, no scary boomers, cause they are all done, that is how behind the times we are...MOL/BOL!
The neighbors across the street put on a big show, Sat the 6th, it seems Saturday suited them better than the Fourth itself. They have a huge property with a big empty field, so the company one of them works for, asks them to sponsor their annual employee picnic and fireworks...which is a big 20 minute show, quite professional, and pretty to watch, if you are not a pet. Sheesh. They even have three of their own dogs, we bet they put them in the cellar or made them wear earplugs...petcretary was working so she missed it, but pawppy did enjoy it. The night of the fourth, there were lots of boomers going off all over the place, but it did not seem to bother us three very much. We did not hide or cower. Of course it helped that both petcretary and pawppy were home to help us stay calm.
Both unfurbros were here on the Fourth to enjoy all the doings of the holiday. All the peeps went to the local airport to see the big 5 hour airshow, its and annual event along with the Balloons. (International Field of Flight) This year the winds were 'wrong', so no balloons floated over our area, sometimes in past years they even landed in the fields around us! The big feature this year was the F22, It is HUGE! And very LOUD!
At the end of the airshow, there was a 'Heritage Flight' with the F22-Raptor of our modern day, and the P51-Mustang, a very small plane from WWII.
And there was a Chipmunk, not the rodent but a plane! It was manufactured by De Haviland, a company from Canada, and also in Britain and Portugal. Petcretary remembers that plane from her childhood days when her family went to an airshow in Trenton Ontario, where there is a AFB base. The RCAF Chipmunks were a bright golden Yellow, and the other models were silvery with  red or the yellow, or they might have been red and white All with minor/major differences to suit the various military needs they were associated with.
Petcretary took pictures with her camera, but she has such a convoluted process to get the images from off of it, to the computer that she just decided to use links to show you what she saw...we call that lazy, BOL/MOL!

Well, it seems of late we can't ever get our posts up on the Sunday they should be...but well, better late than never is a fave saying of petcretary,
Here are our pawtriotic pictures and selfies for Independence Day, The Fourth of July...MOL!
