Skywatch Friday - At The Rodeo Chinook Helicopters

These guys fly over my house almost everyday.  Last month we took the kids to the rodeo at Bristow and these wanted to see the rodeo too.  The crowd went wild!!! They must have known we were there.
There they go.
And now they are gone, but wait

here comes two more and the crowd goes wild again!

As you know we have lost our 8th soilder from the 45th in the last 3 weeks.  Our prayers are with these families and friends.
For a complete list of Oklahoman who have paid the ultimate price during the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan go to Heroes of Oklahoma from Tulsa World.
This week we also lost two young men from the rodeo world, Aaron Custer of Elk City and Benton Drury of Olustee.  Both young men were on their way to college at Weatherford when a tragic accident occurred.  Both were members of the rodeo team at Southwestern Oklahoma State U.  For more about this tragic loss go to News-star.com and PBR Now.

The news has been sobering lately from the Oklahoma National Guard.

It's always a treat to get a free airshow!


Sky so high,
Sky so blue,
Tell me why
I love you.
