Today Roy, Jake (brother-in-law), and I went to a surprise 70th birthday party for Ace, Roy and Jake's Aikido instructor. The party was held on a C-141 plane at March Air Force Base. I'd never been to March before, so I was excited to see all the planes. This is the plane the party was on:
Here's the inside of the plane:
We basically sat around for a couple of hours and talked amongst ourselves. Food (pizza and fried chicken, both excellent choices for a low fat diet) and cake (also good for a low fat diet) were served. The food left much to be desired, but the cake was awesome. There were actually 2 cakes: chocolate and carrot. I had a piece of chocolate. I know what you're thinking - what about my low fat diet, right? Well, it would have been rude to refuse a piece of cake, right? I got no enjoyment out of it whatsoever.
I spent a good deal of time toward the end of the party watching an old lady who looked pregnant gulp down water and talk to herself. At one point she came up to us and seemed very happy to make our acquaintance, although we didn't exchange names. I felt really bad for her, because it was pretty obvious she wasn't exactly in her right mind.
Before we left we took a picture with Ace:
And I made an attempt to get some artsy photos out of our limited point-and-shoot camera:
I'm looking forward to the day when I have the use of a good SLR camera, a decent lens, and Photoshop. Until then, I'm going to practice with the trusty camera that we have now.
