Coming up, tomorrow as a matter of fact, Miss America IX will be at Smith Mountain Lake doing her thing, and what a thing it is to see. If you have never seen this priceless American Icon in person, trust us here. Its worth the trip. And for those of us in the Mid Atlantic ish area, this may be your chance. The weather is predicted to be PERFECT!
Fellow hall of famer Charles Mistele enjoys a full throttle run from time to..OK ALL the time, and I can tell you one thing. The poor families living on Smith Mountain Lake this weekend that are expecting to hear the loons calling are going to be rudely awakened by twin massive engines with 16 pure non mufflered stacks of Detroit angels singing hallelujah! Like when the Blue Angles buzz cities to announce they are there, Miss America makes a couple morning runs.
I can here Edna and Charles having there morning breakfast on the deck now. ” Edna, would you pass the cream please, Oh Charles don’t you just love these quiet mornings, the sounds of the loons and the THE WHAT THE HELL IS THAT. Edna, I think an airplane must be… WHAT THE HELL? Oh, my, that is one beautiful boat… and look at that smile on that mans face. Edna, we are getting a Woody Boat. Charles, where? Well this weekend at the Big Show!”
For those of you coming to see us Sink and Swim, the “plan: is still Saturday, Friday may be spent making sure she runs and floats, and getting out of DC.. Ugh..
