Scenes Around Town: Your Gift from the SW


item not shown actual size.

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… the Ameriquest Soaring Dreams Airship! Today was a perfect day for flying, and not only were there a bunch of planes zipping about, there was also this one plane dragging a tail of letters, advertising some sort of waterfall store (things that make you go “buh?”), and our favorite — the colorful blimp that didn’t really seem to be advertising anything.

The blimp is apparently on a nationwide tour to “inspire children to aim high with their goals and dreams.” But they may not be able to figure it out just by looking at the psychedelic mess. So be sure and point it out if you see it, and then kick their little butts into gear. It’s never too early to aim them high.

    This blimp has been a topic of conversation with me and my friends all week. I love this blimp! People I’ve talked to actually find it frustrating that the sponser of the blimp is not immediately obvious. To me, this just shows how limited we have all become in our corporate-run society. The blimp is beautiful! long live the blimp!

    “It’s never too early to aim them high.” – or learn to lead them a little!

    Does anybody know where this thing lands? I’d love to check it out up close.

    Finally found a url for it: it’s based out of Paine Field for the next week and then it’s moving on.
