Mystery Solved

A few days ago I could not help but wonder what was going on at my house with my roommates.  They kept playing this video over and over again.  Somethings up, I just don't know what it is.  I'll sleep on it, maybe when I wake up I will have a better idea.

Usually, I wake up with a nice big cup of hot chocolate but instead I heard LOUD jet engine sounds.

Hmm, I know a couple of people who were former Air Force, maybe I will ask them. 
Do you see me in this picture?

They could not give me the information I needed (maybe it's classified?).
  I will have to figure this out on my own.  Here are the options I came up with:
1) We are being invaded by Canada?    
Yep, that must be it, now that I solved that problem I think I will head out for a walk.  

My roommates were in the background intentionally clearing their throats and they wanted to make sure that everyone knows that we are NOT being invaded by Canada and that the USA thinks very favorably of our neighbors to the North. 

My roommates then took me outside to watch the Blue Angels.  Apparently, the Blue Angels were practicing for the upcoming airshow.  Ahh, that must be the real reason why they were watching that Kenny Loggins Video (they were so excited about the upcoming show they had to play the TopGun theme constantly).

Now that the mystery is solved.... I grabbed my cell phone camera and shot a few videos of them practicing above my house.

Interestingly, Sequoia was not fazed at all by the Blue Angels, instead he was mesmerized by a butterfly.

The real question is do you think we'll get to go to the airshow?


  1. Hmmm... it would seem to me that a few seconds of Blue Angels doesn't really equate with multiple re-runs of Kenny Loggins. I'm keeping my paw pads crossed that you're actually going to the Air Show!! Make sure to wear your scarf... that's what aviators do. And Sequoia is pretty cute!

    1. Well, I must say the few seconds of the Blue Angels was edited. What I didn't post was the 25 minutes of video of me trying to catch them on film flying over the house. They were buzzing around all day and I have to admit it was pretty darn cool (not sure if it was worth it listening to that much Kenny Loggins though).

      No air show for me but we got to go camping instead so that seems fair.

  2. Great picture with you and those humans. Maybe you can ask them for a ride in a fighter jet LF...
