HOW OFTEN DO YOU HAVE ONE OF THESE FLOAT OVER YOUR HOUSE?

Before I tell you about this, I report, thank God, my family in New Zealand are all OK. They all live on the North Island, and the earthquake was centered on the South Island It was a miracle no one was killed.



The Farmers Airship is a Zeppelin named Eureka. One of only two flying commercially in the world, she is the only Zeppelin in the Americas and is owned and operated by Airship Ventures.
The zeppelin came very quietly floating above our house a couple of days ago and I must say it is a wonderful sight to see. It was very quiet with the barest hum from the engines being heard by Mr C and I as we stood and watched it go by.
This particular airship, not a blimp, was flying as a fundraiser for The March of Dimes. I would have loved to go for a ride.

On another note, I have been very busy so blogging has been light. Yesterday, Mr C and I shot in a Steel Challenge match and we both came home with awards. There will be a story coming up when all settles down around here. We are off to help a NRA membership drive today (at least Mr C is going to help).
