Breaking: UFO Spotted Over South Lakes High School; Positively Identified as Airborne Brand Extension

Goodyear_Blimp.jpgMultiple eyewitnesses reported seeing the Goodyear Blimp flying over South Lakes High School this morning. Perhaps it was scouting out camera angles for the next Tour de France time trials along the new Lawyers Road velodrome, or maybe Fox News just got the date wrong for everyone's favorite spectator sport of late, the no-holds-barred town hall meeting. Awkward!

    I saw this "unidentified flying object" yesterday as I was leaving the library as it flew over Reston Parkway. Where can I buy one of these things? It would certainly beat the traffic getting to and from Tyson's everyday!

    And that's why we read this blog.

    I had a very serious blog about Reston news, but all my readers decided they liked this one better.

  6. Ah, blimps. I heard the blimp's motor and instantly recognized it. I grabbed my 45 lb granddaughter and raced through the trees so she could see it. She hadn't seen one yet. Alas, it got away. Isn't it wonderful that something can produce the same pure joy that one felt as a kid? I love blimps.

  7. Actually, what we all saw was the DRB's new high-tech zeppelin, allowing it to detect even minute differences in the composition of roof shingles and paint used on party walls... FROM OUTER SPACE

  8. Hmmm. Long ago a Covenants counselor told us we could only have skylights that lined up in a straight line on the roof (for the benefit of people flying overhead?) Pooh on where we needed the light inside the house. We had to appeal. Three cheers to the DRB who voted in our favor.

  9. Can Predator drones be far behind, especially over certain parts of South Reston?
