So there I was

Filler shot.
So there I was, cooking a great Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry, when all of the sudden I heard it. It was a horrendous sound, my wife thought it was a train. I have a much bigger imagination and thought it was a helicopter gun ship landing in our yard. I ran to the back of my property and peered though the woods ( picture lower right) and there was a huge army helicopter landing in the local park behind my house. Of course it was. Turns out that they were landing there for military appreciation day. Never a dull moment.
I love the stories that you tell...that is pretty dang cool that a helicopter landed at the ball park! We never get anything like that!

Lucky your camera was at the ready. Great story and well captured.

@digitalrn I had heard a few of them but I was just messing with my wife and it turned out to be right.

Kind of reminds me of that 80s movie, Red Dawn. Maybe this Military Appereciation Day is why, when I drove by the park today on way home, it had a lighted sign saying "Simulated gunfire." haha....in Atlanta, GA we really don' t need to add to the regular gunfire. Ha!

That almost never happens when I'm cooking dinner!

I love surprises like that. I also love that your wife thought it was a train. Are there tracks near you? And, like Paula, @pwallis, said, "That almost never happens when I'm cooking dinner."
August 3rd, 2011  
well you are lucky they didnt land to pick up a body or two
August 3rd, 2011  
@nikkers only you would think of that, lol.
August 3rd, 2011  
@nana Yes we have a train track just down the street. Never a dull moment

@pwallis your comment made me laugh

That must have surprised the heck out of a lot of folks living around the park! You could use this shot for this week's theme as a scene from "M*A*S*H". :)
