Lots of work projects. We have been busy helping with yard projects, table refurbishing and staining, and clearing out the honeysuckle trees and bushes from the forest behind our daughter and son-in law's home.
We need to be busy and helpful and we've found a few ways of doing that for our two daughters and their families that live in St. Louis.

There were three stunt pilots who displayed their aerobatic skills and several World War II planes.
Also Army Aviation Skydivers put on a demonstration of a Viet Nam era simulated helicopter rescue flight as a warm up for the Blue Angels.
The Blue Angels will perform in 35 cities this spring and summer and give 55 performances. The Blue Angels consist 6 F-18 Hornet planes and an additional demonstration of a C-130 Hercules cargo plane.
Not to be outdone by the stunt pilots, the Blue Angels tried some dangerous stunts of their own.
