Horseradishes and Helicopters

Today we rode in a helicopter.


All three of us.  Scary?  A little.  Partly because it had this on the side:


Revelation 19:11—I'll have to look that one up.  But mostly because it was a helicopter on a trailer at the 'International Horseradish Festival.'  Oh yeah, there really is such a thing.  Who knew the horseradish was such a versatile vegetable…or root…or whatever the heck it is.  Daddy-O even made a horseradish car to race in the horseradish derby.  Unfortunately, it sucked…  It was blown away by those dang 10-year-old professional derby-goers.  Lesson learned: fill horseradish with as much weight as possible.

Back to the helicopter, I did consider the fact it may not be the best idea when the guy asked if I wanted to sit up front with Supergirl (there were no doors on the front and no seat belt for the girlie)  We opted for the back seat and she was VERY brave and very impressed with the ride.  I guess we can now say we did it.

And we can't forget the pony rides

    Who’d want to ride a pony after riding in a helicopter?! Sounds like a fun day.

    Why was the copter on a trailer? Did they leave the trailer behind while flying? The guy who owns it has the ultimate toy trailer there: motorcycle and helicopter. I always remember taking the Cub Scouts to tour the airport and one of the dad’s who worked for the FAA told me that, “helicopters don’t fly – they just beat the air into submission.”

    Rev. 9:11
    “And they (the scorpion people) had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
