Wish I still lived at Whidbey! I'd be there in a second! Also wish you I would have finished my jet back when I did live there and got my waiver. Now I'm out in Ohio......so far away.

Sunday is a day I spend with my daughters....Cincinnati has a spectacular fireworks show on the River that night, but you need to show up early to get a seat. So Sunday was never in the cards for me.
