After a really busy week, and looking forward to a crazy busy week, I find I have a few quiet minutes. I am excited to update my blog and I have decided to join Show and Tell Friday.
Most of the blogs I follow share beautiful posts of dishes and crafts and travel. I could post about the same but today, I am excited to share my quirky collection of all things Boeing. They just rolled out the new 747-8 this week.
Interestingly, I started collecting Boeing items when I was in the 5th grade. I have always had a thing for airplanes.
I have no idea why I had to have this tray at such an early age (10 ish?). This is from the Renton Open House in 1974. I was only three and didn’t even live in Washington at that age.
We always went to the airshow every year. My dad helped with the airplanes. I helped out when I got older. This is my brothers and I next to a 747. Vintage 1976 or 77.
Now it’s all about the 787. Building a new kind of airplane is crazy business. Patience and flexibility is mandatory. I know it will be worth the wait. It is a beautiful airplane.
There are a few other airplane items in my collection. I have been around airplanes my whole life. I love the airport. I am huge Boeing Fan.
That tin in the right corner has airplane shaped chocolates. I ate most of them though. Most of my things I have picked up at Family day or my husband has brought home for me. I know I love his job more than he does- only because I don’t have to be there every day.
