Mister Wants A Hammock . . .

Saw this video online and now Mister wants one of his own.

A few days ago I posted this amazing video of a quadcopter drone flying around and through a fireworks show. Here it is again if you missed it.

It was done in West Palm Beach, FL, but as I thought it wasn’t this past 4th of July, but back in May during West Palm Beach’s Sunfest..

And now the pilot is being investigating by the FAA because in flying through the fireworks, he may have flown too close to the airport. Of course the question is, how many planes would be flying through the fireworks, anyway, since the airspace had already been cleared for the show.

And it sounds like the guy lives in South Africa, anyway.

A little before 5 we headed out with Nick and Terry to have dinner at the Sherman House Restaurant in Batesville. We had hoped to eat here on Monday when we got to the park, but they’re closed on Mondays, so we went Mexican.

The Sherman House has been around since 1852 and has a great menu, including a lot of German specialties, as well as a really good salad bar. So we were really looking forward to it tonight.

But when we got to the restaurant, we found a large chalkboard out front that said, “Sorry for the Inconvenience. We closed at 4pm today.”

Bummer!

So we decided to try the nearby Chinese Buffet that had pretty good reviews.

THEY WERE WRONG!   And I’m not going to say anymore about it.

We even tried to save the evening with a stop at Dairy Queen on the way home, and they got a coup;le of our orders wrong.

Maybe we should have just stayed home.

  1. Well, the question is then…when is Mister getting his hammock?? Cute video!!

    And so sorry about the LOUSY food….sounds like it might be better to etiher cook at home, or at least phone ahead to BE SURE they will be serving when you arrive. How disappointing!!

  2. A few years ago we were delayed in our departure from Pittsburgh to Phoenix. It was the 4th of July and that delay was perfect as we flew over the fireworks from many different cities and landed as the grand finale went off over Tempe Town Lake. It’s an entirely different view looking down at them.
