Today's Wonder of the World is...Wind. And the ways we enjoy it!
Ah wind. I like it the natural way
Hi my good buddy Lisa! And dear Michael and their beautiful yet windswept Meredith!
I LOVE this picture of you on the windiest spot of Hawaii! It's the best vacation photo I've ever seen!
I also love wind the artificial way!
Do you remember the first time you talked into a fan and heard how funny your voice sounded?
Feeling the wind on my face makes me feel like I'm flying, just like this little one!
Or like this bigger one.
I love her.
Most of the time wind is fun.
But sometimes it's scary. I remember in fourth grade waiting out a tornado under my desk at school.
I also remember a tornado a few years ago wiping Todd's grandpa's old gas station/garage right off the map.
But let's not think of that right now. Let's keep it light.
Here. This will help.
One of the windiest places I've ever been was Wichita Falls, Texas. Todd was based there right before we got married. I went to visit him and was windblown the entire time. At least I think it was the wind that mussed up my hair.
I wonder if they use windmills there?
I love things that celebrate the wind.
Don't they look like this flower?
I also like whirligigs, though I don't own any.
I should do something about that.
It used to be that when I was in a whirligig mood, I could head towards downtown and see a whole yard full of amazing ones, all crafted by Mr. Herron Briggs , a local folk artist. He died a few years ago, and most of his whirligigs are gone now. But here's one. Click on his name above for his story. He was quite a wonder himself.
Those are so fun!
How many whirligigs are enough?
Maybe the answer is blowing in the wind.
Have a Wonder-full Wednesday y'all!
