Rosie Celebrates Aviation Day.

One of my favorite T-shirts is my "where's Billy?" shirt,
Billy being Billy of Billy's Seafood.

A neighbor and I were sporting matching shirts
at our neighborhood Labor Day party a few years back.

August 19 was National Aviation Day,
first proclaimed on August 19, 1939,
by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
This year celebrates 100 years of the National Park Service
and August 19 also coincides with Orville Wright's birthday.

In commemoration of the Wright Brothers,
 the park hosted special guest speakers,
displayed aircraft, and had flight-related activities
going on throughout the day.

It's the Wright Brothers National Memorial Monument,
for cryin' out loud.

Mr. Hawthorne and I went for the 3-D chalk art display,
created by internationally known artist, Tracey Lee Stum.
You really should check out Tracey's link
to see some of her amazing creations.

Wearing my "where's Billy?" T-shirt,
I went up for the perfect photo op.
Oh Billy.
Where art thou, Billy?

Sadly, Rosie couldn't find Billy anywhere.
