Was playing Orange Blossom last week and a Direct TV blimp was flying low over that area.

Do not follow where the path may lead.
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

No matter that it is Direct TV, we still enjoyed watching it sail overhead!

Big events in Pittsburgh used to always draw a blimp, and when it did, they always stayed at the county airport away from major air traffic. My guess, it was stationed at Leesburg airport, and ready for the Daytona 500.

Maybe there are some golfers inside and they are trying to get the lay of various golf courses by watching the various golfers do their thing.

Shame! Shame! You still can't recognize a politician filled with hot air even when you see one.
