What did you do today?
I was here. Driving a car. In the motorcade. Yes, THAT motorcade. (as were my mom and a knitting buddy whose schedule was clear when I was asking vague questions last week)
Rumor has it that I’ll get a print of my (group) picture with 44 in the mail in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, Tigger was a little shy, but I can show you a few things that happened when I didn’t have to have both paws on the wheel.
Tigger and I drove a media van. “Camera 1” to be specific. We had lots of TV photographers and two official people from the plane with us, since we were the lead media van and had a brief part of the route at the venue where we weren’t following the leader.
While we were waiting for everyone to tour the V&M STAR plant, Tigger wanted his picture taken at the venue
After “The Remarks,” 44 did a little meet-and-greet with some factory staff. Look for the red collar on his black coat
Need a little more help? This is super-zoom on my point-and-shoot camera, so it’s not the greatest
And with that, my friend (yellow tie) who gave us this incredible opportunity shook hands with the guy in charge of the motorcade volunteers
And we were off. Back to the Air Force base and all of our passengers were gone faster than you would believe. A few more photos …
Yeah, It’s THAT plane. And it’s HUGE
Tigger is a camera hog
There are a couple more images HERE. They’re wire photos, but there’ pretty cool (I think). You can click around a bit if that suits your fancy.
And on that note, I am exhausted. And coughing. A lot. Here’s hoping that a good solid night’s sleep will solve both problems nicely.
