no previous part Part 1 of USA ! USA ! USA ! series no next part

Ok, so this aint exactly woodworking, but after my wife spotted it, I just knew I had to share.

The other day I was working in my shop (making a few Birdy Bungalows) when my wife came out to see what I wanted for lunch. I could hear her in the yard calling for me to “Come and see this !”

As I walked outside I see her pointing to the sky … and THIS is what I saw ! A giant American flag in the clouds…

I knew it would disappear pretty quick so I quickly grabbed the camera and got a couple shots of it. That shot above is from in front of the shop and I tried to get a better view of it from the back of the shop. That’s my neighbor’s barn near my workshop.


In less than 3 or 4 minutes, the winds had carried it away.

That’s pretty cool! Suppose I should sit out on the steps and see if it blows by? Hahaha, thanks for sharing.

It was all about the “Timing” ... If she had come out 5 minutes later, it would have been gone and we’d have never seen it !

Yeah. You gotta look up, from time to time. Sometimes there’s some real show-and-tell stuff going on up there. Sometimes, it’s just God showing off.
