This week hubby and I had a chance to make the 60 mile jaunt to Gila Bend, AZ.  Our granddaughter is spending the week at an Air Force Facility there.  She is a member of the Wings of Green of the US Air Force Academy.  The Wings of Blue (Juniors and Seniors) were there also.  All were hoping to get in a lot of practice parachute jumps - I fear it was a bit too windy to do as much as they wanted.  We watched her do jump #69 and 70.  Here are photos with her grandfather; packing her 'chute; practicing the group maneuvers they will do before deploying the 'chute; loading the plane, and, finally, coming in for a landing.  Adrienne is on the demo team - she is hoping to be a part of the team that will drop into such events as major football games, etc.

  1. Hi Dorothy! Can you please check out my blog post over at the Snippets Playground,http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/pixies-snippets-playground-week-271-and_26.html

    You won recently and I need your mailing address. My guess is that with being away you haven't checked the blog - which is understandable, real life is more important.

    If I don't hear by the coming weekend then I'll assume you aren't interested in the prize after all and will do a redraw. My email addy is on my blog, RHS!

    Di xx
