Writing and sharing memories makes a difference
Thanks for the memory of the ride in the airship!
By Linda Waggener
Just a note to say thanks to all who shared photos and comments about a recent unusual visitor -- a passing blimp, small airship, that surprised several skywatchers who happened to grab a quick photo and share. Several saw it, documented it and others tracked down what it was doing here. In addition to wondering what the suspicious character was doing in our airspace, I wanted to know what it was like to be inside it.
Those pictures with notes of wondering sparked a conversation among readers and wound up inspiring a story by Jon Halsey from Knifley, KY, who described his personal boyhood experience, letting those of us who have yet to ride in a blimp know exactly what it's like.
Thank you, Jon, for writing! Clicking the link goes to the story which I plan to read again. Comments re article 92644 Jon Halsey Knifley KY recalls once-in-lifetime Blimp ride.
For the pictures and comments preceding the story, using the 'search' function in the menu box above, typing in the word 'blimp' should get a list of all or most.
I hope more are writing at this moment, memories are gifts to the next generation. --Linda Waggener
