A Fly Past

I wasn't home, but R took some snaps (along with an upside down photo of his face and a short video of his feet) of the Australia Day fly past by the Roulettes.

    1. Gosia, it was nearly 40 degrees today. I am fed up with hot weather, sun and blue skies, but I don't want to swap it for snow weather.

  2. I hate to be Rubye Downer but how much does this stuff cost? When they argue about the budget here they always threaten to cut funding for the Blue Angels, same as your Roulettes, along with food stamps and unemployment like jet shows are of equal importance.

    1. Rubye, when the government cries poor because it can't fun a basic health service, I remain sceptical. Just the fuel for these flying machines costs thousands of dollars almost per minute.

  3. We'll have them back here soon enough with the Clipsal races. I'm going to try and get new photos.
    @Rubye Jack, the Roulettes are show planes used for specific events such as Australia Day flyovers, demonstrations at car races etc. Not an essential part of our economy so of course the government doesn't care. They only cut budgets for stuff people need, like the public transport, welfare, hospitals, schools, etc

    1. River, is that the car race that clashed with an opera performance last year?

  4. Yes. And I didn't care one bit, since I don't go to either one.

    1. Wankers at both really, but I could not possibly say that publically.

    1. Grace, I had to think hard about how you would take an upside down photo of your face. Not sure I really get it, still.

    1. Hmmm, roullies rhymes with a French word led with a c rather than r.
