Backyard Blimp

There were two exciting things that happened yesterday. One was that the temporary fencing that had been blocking our access to the yard behind our building, where the swings are, was finally gone. The construction crew is still working in front of our building, but at least now, the children who live in this building have a place to play.


It's a bit barren looking right now, but I'm sure it won't take long for things to grow again.

The other exciting thing, was that after repeatedly listening to the song Airship Pirate for the past couple days, I walked out of the apartment to find this flying over my head:


Yesterday was another big football game for the Florida Gators Football team and the Direct TV blimp was circling overhead, taking aerial movies of the stadium.

I'm glad the construction is nearing an end.

That's ironic about the blimp flying above your home after having that song in your mind!

You gotta love that blimp. It looks so majestic. Many thanks for the photos.

I'd love to go for a ride in a blimp. How cool that it flew right over your house.
That's good news about the kids getting their play area back.
