Sunday Selections Week 27


Today I have dug out some Connie photos from 2011, with a few different angles for you.




You can read more about the Connie here – Lockheed Super Constellation “CONNIE” VH-EAG. She is maintained by HARS who are also the owners of the Qantas 747 that flew into Albion Park earlier this year.

3. leave River a comment so that she knows you’ve joined in and can come over and see what you’ve posted.

Weekly Wrap Up –

This week has been an interesting one in Snoskredland. We discovered that we did not have a sewer leak or a pipe leak but we likely had found a natural spring given the lack of rain here just lately..

I went on a shopping trip with the parents during which I FOUND MY KNIT at Millers and it is absolutely stunning! I did not see it on the website. I will show it to you this Wednesday.

Then in the latter half of the week, the contractors arrived to do preparations for our new driveway, and our cars have had to be parked out the front since Thursday which meant I cleaned out every single item, even from the gloveboxes, because we have a bit of a problem with car window smashing around here.

This leads me to write a message to the Entertainment Peoples. Guess what? People will pay for your stuff if you can provide them an easy and simple means to do so, plus, provide your entertainment via those means to the entire world within an hour of the show airing in the first country it airs in. Your licensing deals are so 1994. The internet exists now and you can’t just bury your head in the sad and pretend like it doesn’t.

  1. Do you know that people have unfriended me from Facebook for directing them to snopes over a post they’ve written? People do NOT want their views of reality challenged. It makes me fear for humanity. The Connie is cool; I love planes, except if I have to fly in a small one. My grandfather was a dentist and a pilot; I discovered that I get airsick on the private planes. I also live in the shadow of Boeing, so planes are a BIG DEAL around here.

      • Mine too–and I get to fly on one from Incheon to Phuket. :) I own quite a lot of Boeing stock, so I’m always relieved that other people like their planes. Since you like planes: I think I’m on a 777 from Seattle to Incheon, then a 747; on the way home, they’re Airbus big boys.

  2. That is a beautiful plane! I so wish i could fly sometimes. But I have an attraction to flying machines and birds. Your blog is so organized and interesting!

  3. I loved those rainbow connection cakes! Especially the one made by the non-professional who drives trucks for a living.
    Connie is a nice looking plane, well proportioned.
