Comments: Exactly how did it get to the second half of the year?

68 days? Yes, I was wondering... Congrats on ignoring the internet for living life.

The air show is interesting to me, but it all military? We have air shows here with private, vintage, stunt and wartime airplanes but I've not heard of just military shows other than shows of force. (Whatever happened to that military parade Trump wanted?)

We live less than 3 miles from Truax Field here in Madison, the future home of a squadron of F-35 aircraft. I don't know how many planes a squadron is, but I can tell you there are plenty of F-16s stationed here presently. And we live in a flight path. The commercial planes can get loud outside, but it is brief, the jets are louder, but also brief. And I actually like to pause and watch them come in and go out. Perhaps I'll try to get a video soon, but perspective makes it look smaller on video...

I watched it on-line and I was very impressed but it would have been better to see it happen live. Certainly impressive.
Exciting news...a potential house move perhaps?

Second attempt at commenting.

I watched it on-line and that was impressive but to have the view you had would have been marvellous.

Exciting news on Friday...a house move perhaps?

Waiting with bated breath...

No flypast here, though a helicopter landed on the village green - I suppose it was an air ambulance, but the village grapevine hasn't spread here yet.

I've got to deadhead the small amount of ragwort on the field, before they seed - we've got a nice lot of cinnabar moths so I don't want to get rid of them completely.

You're getting another cat!

Not a house, not a cat.

You are having a baby / becoming a councillor / naming all the bees / winning the lottery?

Now be sensible Debster ;)

It's about a special event for someone who lives with us...
