Last week’s vacation to Michigan included the whole family, eight- including two grandkids under one roof, on Glen Lake. No TV or connectivity of any kind which would place everyone on electronics withdrawal despite the presence of two laptops.

At least one of us really liked it. A heritage flight with A-10; F-22 and F-4 (flying Phantoms are rare these days), aerobatic demos of F-22, A-10, Pitts and Extra and the Blue Angels as the finale. Fellow aviator Steve caught it on camera and it looked exactly like this:
