    Cool Heightened Security?

    Lot of goings on here this afternoon, blacked out SUV's, local airspace closed, etc. So I wonder what's going on. Evening news--Oh, The Big O is taking a golf vacation literally in my backyard here, like 2-3 miles away.

    Guess I'll be finding an alternate route to town for the next few days so my CW doesn't get confiscated. And I hope the rain keeps up.

    Just hope he doesn't go Skeet shooting like he does "all the time".

    Just a little update:
    I was in the garage cleaning a gun today when I heard a jet go into afterburner, which is odd seeing as there's no military base around and the airshow is in Nov. Stepped out side to see a Coast Guard Helo overhead escorting a Cessna while an F-16 flew lazy circles around both of them. Apparently the private pilot didn't check on the latest air restrictions with the president playing golf nearby. Ooooops! They forced the Cessna to land at the nearby airfield and have a Meet & Greet with the local authorities.

    Ah, Presidents, the're just like us!!

    But really,
    Why don't he do what Bush did,just go back home.
    No helicopters no black "burbans, just a couple SS agents with wires running up to their ear, walking around.
    Nice and simple!

    According to the Golf Channel (I am an avid player) POTUS is playing golf with Tiger Woods, who is in between tournaments at this time.
