I just saw a blimp! Not just any blimp, either. It was the godfather of blimps. The Goodyear Blimp. I was sitting in my office when I heard a propeller noise that immediately registered as a blimp. I ran outside, and there it was. Right over my head. All blue and yellow. The first time I saw it I was about four years old. It flew so low over my house that it cast a shadow over our entire backyard and I could see all the windows in the gondola. Ever since I have had a soft spot for blimps. Maybe I will get really lucky and see the Weinermobile on my way home!
