No Sunday Selfie ~ Growlmy Is Tech Challenged

I am trying to post my Sunday Selfie, but growlmy is not on her computer but on a IPad. She says she is glad she has it...but she feels rather crippled, BOL!
She tried to post a picture from her collection of *me*, but she has no idea how...its way different on the IPad than the confuser she mostly works on. The regular confuser is in the confuser hospital, at least for a week...sigh...so no pics until then, not that Growlmy has made that many...Oh well, it's like a kind of enforced vacation from blogging I guess...or at least it's a vacation from pictures!!

Eight Happy Me Selfies And Some Other Happies, Too

I was nominated a while ago...far too long ago, but my dogretary was lazy, though she says she was bogged down...anypaws, my good pal Whitely nominated and tagged me to do a posting of Eight Pictures of Happiness. Thanks, Whitley, this should be fun, and fun makes me happy, BOL!

This tag 'game' was started by Ariel's Little Corner of the Internet.

Well, its also Selfie Sunday, so I thought it would be helpfur to growlmy to combine these so she can relax once she is done. Right, her relax?? I do not think she even knows how, BOL!

I am always happy in my one acre fenced yard. This image is a few years old...but I still am happy there!
Even as a younger me, like about two or three years old, I was a happy dude.


As a puppy, my chewing career was in full swing...and I love to chew!


I am always happy to destroy balls, even those of others; this is Murphy my cousin's ball, BOL!






Of course I am always happy to be with my furmily, here are my Auntie with Murphy, Boss-boy with me, and unfurbro, pawppy and my Great Auntie. We were also happy to be dogabrating Canada Day, OMD, eons ago!!


It makes me really happy when Murphy comes to see me at my den! Here we are plotting a good digging session, which of course is more reason to be happy!


I do love to run and being able to run at large in my big yard, that makes me happy!

I love dogabrations, and this one shows my Happy Birthday portrait of a few years ago.



Another dogabration I enjoyed a lot was when Pawppy and Growlmy had their 25th wedding anniversary. .You know, this Saturday (July 25), they will dogabrate...wait...they will celebrate their 28th! Congrats! So yes that makes me so furry happy to see them being happy:)

Begging fur a treat always makes me happy, Mmmm! Growlmy took this image and then we had to run fur cover cause the thunderstorms were closing in on us...that did not make me happy, I had to bark loudly to scare the storm away...and yes it worked, BOL! After about an hour...OMD.



And of course I am happy to make and share a Sunday Selfie with all of you!
 I am supposed to tag others?? Oh-oh! This post s so late, I will let you consider yourself as tagged if you didn't get this tag from any other of your pals! OK?? BOL!

This furry long Happy Selfie Sunday posting is part of the blog hop hosted by The Cat On my Head

~ No New Selfie Sunday ~

I had to steal some of my own images to get into this blog hop, today...because the confuser is not cooperating right now fur growlmy...she can't get her pics nor add new ones. Pawppy knows what to do to fix it and is working on it, but he says it will take time...so...hence the not too selfie posting, BOL!
At furst I thought I would not be able to do anything, but, well, its a good thing growlmy knows how to snag url's:))

Airplanes! Balloons! Fireworks!

I thought it might be fun to show you some of the things I had to bark at past Friday, Yesterday, and even today. Then you can all come ovfur to help...if we succeed these things will vamoose by tomorrow, BOL!






VLADO LENOCH USAF HERITAGE FLIGHT: F-22/P-51

Heritage Flight: P-51 and F-22Renowned Air Show performer Vlado Lenoch flew the North American P-51 “Baby Duck” owned by the Warbird Heritage Foundation in formation with the F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team during our 2015 Air Show.
The U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight (HF) program presented the evolution of USAF air power by flying today's state-of-the-art fighter aircraft in close formation with vintage fighter aircraft.
An HF performance involves a current USAF fighter piloted by an Air Combat Command trained military HF pilot and flown with a historical warbird piloted by a trained and certified civilian HF pilot. The HF features  formations of modern fighters flying with World War II, Korean, and Vietnam era fighters such as the P-51 Mustang and F-86 Sabre, dramatically displaying our U.S. Air Force air power history and proudly supporting our Air Force's recruiting and retention efforts. In 2010, the Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation (AFHFF) was formed to keep this popular program flying.
United States Air ForceIt really is amazing to see our “old” and “new” in formation. It helps show the span of over 70 years of the United States Air Force. Seeing a World War II Era P-51 Mustang flying alongside the ONLY fifth generation fighter on Earth, the F-22 Raptor, is certainly a spectacle to see. It is also a touching tribute to those who have served our country.
Do not miss this chance to see history in flight during our air shows, perhaps in your locale!
F-22 Raptor
... flown by Major John Cummings, displayed a little of its enormous power and weapon storage for the crowds at The Field of Flight performance.
P-51 'Baby Duck'

Heritage Flight - P-51 Mustang, F-22 Raptor, F-4 Phantom & F-86 Sabre
What a big machine! And there were two of them, right in our own Air National Guard Base! (Which is on the same acreage as the airport where all this takes place.)

The ever-popular"4CE" Aerobatic Team. Battle Creek was one of the first air shows to host this team formed by world renowned aerobatic pilots back in 2012 . The team is lead by Matt Chapman in the Embry Riddle Eagle 580 with Jack Knutson ("Firebird" Extra 300S) and Rob Holland (MXS) flying the wing positions. Bill Stein rounds out the formation flying his Zivko Edge 540 in the slot position. This performance is filled with tons of aerobatic formation passes, solo maneuverssquirrel cage maneuvers and the heart-stopping switchblade cross.



Squirrel Cage Maneuvers?? We need this crew to get rid of nasty tree rats all ovfur the world,BOL!!




F-22 Ground Crew



Those were some of the featured airshow demonstrations...there were lots more, as the whole thing is about 5 hours long!
Even a special school bus rigged up with rocket engines, OMD!


You can even buy one for yourself, BOL!


Fun and learning for young and older too!
This year they had a  dog competition called Ultimate Air Dogs. Dogs jumping/flying into a pool...not fur me thank you furry much...Whitely and Finley might like it...




And of course Balloons, Plenty of them:
Here are some bird's eye views:
Always awesome to see!



 This is a fun balloon, if you like kitties:

 Here is some info about this balloon, called 'Alley Cat':

Susan Stamats Hot Air Balloon Susan Stamats is from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She saw a hot-air balloon and then she was hooked. She now has been a licensed balloon pilot since 1986 with over 2400 hours as pilot-in-command of a balloon.
Susan flies the "Alley Cat" balloon. She has participated in every event at the Battle Creek Field of Flight Hot-Air Balloon Competitions except one. She says her balloon crew is the Best in the World!


A couple of the evenings, they light up a lot of balloons with their engines. Its quite the sight, growlmy saw it herself a few times in the past.





And then...the end of a satisfying weekend to dogabrate The Fourth Of July...Fireworks!


OK, There is all or most of the doings around here this weekend...and growlmy missed all of it, BOL! She didn't make any of these pictures, they were 'harvested', BOL!

At least it is quiet here tonight, and all will be normal once again:))
Growlmy will get Labor Day off, but, well there is just not much happening on that day, other than all the stores will be laboring to get the kids all fitted for the new school year! Hey that's still weeks away!

Woofs!
