Well. I've been challenged by AL at Caramel Macchiato to play tag with her. This entails (as I understand it anyway) finding out what photo you have in your 1st folder, 10th picture. And (drumroll please), here it is! My wedding day to my wonderful husband, and for those who don't know what it means, take a look here and you will see 4 knees in the breeze. It's a simple alliterative phrase for skydivers to say "I'm going skydiving."
And as I also understand it, I don't get to modify or in any way change this photo. It was taken on May 5, 1994, at 5,500 feet over the ground. We are falling towards the ground at 120 mph. We are over Loveland, Colorado, passing the symbolic Baton of Commitment (a piece of rubber hose wrapped with duct tape). When we wrote on our Certificate of Marriage that we would be married when we passed through 5,500 feet over Loveland, Colorado, nobody objected, so we are truly married.
I think the marriage took, since we just got back from the Drop Zone in Snohomish, Washington, after having jumped all day, out of a wonderful Caravan with wonderful friends. We then drove home, me to my blogging pages, and him to pack my parachute after lengthening the brake lines. Do I have a great husband or what??
That jumpsuit I am wearing in this picture was brand new for this jump ('cause you're not supposed to let the groom see the wedding dress beforehand). He loves rainbows, so I have the rainbow grippers (grippers: places where you can grab onto each other without pinching skin). That's I-25 running from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Denver, Colorado, intersecting the picture. The photo was taken by our Best Man, Bill Jackson, with a camera on his head, snapping pictures by biting down on a switch in his mouth.
This might be the most unusual Tag of the five you chose, AL, but I must tell you how much I am honored by having been tagged!!
