Photo Finish Friday: Aircraft Carrier Landings

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  The other day after our walk, Mom was in making the bed.  She was on the far side, smoothing out the quilt and stuff, so I thought it would be the perfect time to practice my aircraft carrier landings.  More specifically, my touch and goes.  I can keep that up for EVER!  Anyway ... since Mom was on the other side of the room, she got some pretty good action shots; we thought we'd share them with you for Photo Finish Friday!  Ready?

Start on the bed, race out through the living room, around the dining room table, back through the living room, then land on the bed.  Take off quickly for another one!

"Ready?  And ... GO!"
"You missed that one?  Let's go again!"
"Coming in for a landing!"
"Did you get that one?  Off for the next touch and go!"
"Wheels down!  Here I come!"
"Oooh, nice!  Did we change fabric softeners?"
"One more!  Ready?!!?"
"Wasn't that one awesome?!?"
"You weren't making fun of my tongue in that shot, were you?"
"Wowzers, that was fun!"

That was a great workout!  And it must have helped Mom with her bed-making chore, as she kept thanking me over and over and over again!  "Thanks, Maggie!"  "Thank you!"  "Oh, nice!  Thanks, Mags!"  That's all I heard, then she'd smooth and smooth and smooth the quilt!  Talk about multi-tasking:  practicing aircraft carrier landings, touch and goes, AND helping make the bed!  Doing the Working Breeds proud!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

PS:  I am a professional; do not try this at home without proper training and supervision.  Also, if your mom or someone is standing on the other side of the bed, make sure you do either LAND or touch and go --- do NOT leap over the whole bed  like I often do . Trust me on that one.  Sorry, Mom.

ANOTHER PS:  Cam and I made the National Weather Service's webpage!  Check out the last picture at this link!!!
