Chicago Air and Water Show

A few weeks ago I asked my sister to do a guest post. She declined, but has since felt so bad about saying no, that she has now rescinded. Actually, that’s not true. Well, maybe just a little, tee-hee.

Last Friday she went to the 50th Annual Chicago Air and Water Show and has emailed me some pictures that her friend took (© 2008 Kheris). This special celebration included Chicagoans Bill Murray and Gary Sinese and his Lt. Dan Band.

Bill Murray made a 13,500 foot tandem jump with Staff Sgt Joe Jones, of the Golden Knights. He then visited with veterans hosted by Wounded Warrior Project.










Actor Gary Sinese and his Lt. Dan Band played in tribute to the the USO.





Ooh, I love me some Gary Sinese!!!





Then on to the main event….




















Clearly, a spectacular show! I think next summer I should visit her and catch the 51st Annual Air and Water Show.


And uh, did I mention I’d like me some Gary Sinese!

I'm almost exactly a month older than Gary Sinise. He looks damn good for an old dude. By the way, I could swear I sent you a pic of the tandem jump. Look for the parachute that has four arms attached, with Bill Murray flapping out front in a yellow jumpsuit.

Oh man, I sooooo wanted to go! But I had to work Saturday and Sunday I had a bridal shower. I was so bummed! Maybe next year we could go together.
HUGS!

Oh those are some really good photos. I can't believe how old Bill Murray is looking, but I guess when out of makeup we all look older!!!! ha ha ha. So do you really like Gary Sinise or are you just kidding with us? I bet you are just messing with us and I bet you end up at that air show next year!

Wow. I have to wipe off the drool from the sexy Gary Sinese pictures in order to write this comment. Muuuuch slobber. And? Blue Angels! Blue Angels! Blue Angels!

That is all.

Those shots are fantastic. Very professional. I've never regarded Gary Sinise as a sexy beast before but well, um, now, I see him in a different light. Oooh la la.

Yep Gary Sinese is AWESOME.

Billy Murray looks pretty good in these pictures. Lately he's been looking a mess.
