I was always fond of the airship's smaller cousin, the blimp, and used to see them frequently as a child in Los Angeles. My parents remember seeing full sized dirigibles, which were all gone by the time I was born. I liked hearing the story of the time the Shenandoah flew directly over my mother's neighborhood in Culver City one day in the 1920's, and always wished I could have seen one of the aerial behemoths in person. Maybe someday, some rich eccentric will build one for himself, and I'll get my wish. These days, it's hard to believe that such things ever existed. I'd love to see something the size of the Empire State building floating in midair.
There were nice clouds today, bringing a few moments of shade to the earth now and then. It truly looked like spring. I've missed that.
