helicopters make for a windy day

because of our great friend danny, we were able to watch marine one leave the white house (with the president in the helicopter) yesterday over lunch. such a fun cultural experience. it's funny how the press gets in a frenzy just to see president obama leave in a helicopter.
i love watching it all happen.

it was a hot, hot day until the helicopter arrived and took off. we were happy for the wind--- even though it nearly knocked me over, multiple times.
yeah, it was windy. waiting
see? windy.
thanks lovely danny friend

So, he doesn't take a little backpack or a man purse or anything with him? I guess they have all his supplies on board.

i think your video is fantastic. i enjoy the trees dancing in the helicopter's wind. i also think that mr. president's salute is super cute.
