I had to post these pictures mom sent me I thought they were really neat. As a kid growing up with dad in the Air Force we went to a lot of air shows. I loved them. These brought back great memories. Also had to post some thoughts she sent. Good stuff mom. The pictures are of the Navy's Blue Angels
Consider These 3 Thoughts
(1) Zero Gravity
When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 Million developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside-down, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.
The Russians used a pencil.
Your taxes will be due again next April---enjoy paying them!
(2) Our Constitution
"They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it's worked for over 200 years and, we're not using it anymore."
(3) Ten Commandments
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a Courthouse is that you cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery" and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians! It creates a hostile work environment!
I know these "thoughts" seem contradictory to the patriotism of the photos but that's not how I mean it to be.
