Unexpected heroes at the Fall Festival



Last week, my youngest's elementary school hosted its annual Fall Festival ...


... where we found unexpected heroes from ...


... the Mobile Diving Salvage Unit One!

   
Above and below are their "vintage" equipment ....
   
  
... modern equipment allows them to play ...


.... Tic Tac Diver with the children!


They were heroes to the children!  Do you have any diving experience?  One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash.  This giveaway is open to all readers.  Comments are open through Saturday, November 17, 10 pm in Hawaii.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, November 18.

  6. Not after witnessing our neighbor (a very pretty girl) jump from a cliff only to find out that the water wasn't that deep, hit her leg on a sharp stone, resulting to a very deep wound. :(

  11. I love fall festivals! The only time I even thought about diving was many years ago. You got to wear one of the old style diving helmets (and since I wear glasses, this was a nice selling point), however, the sea was pretty wild that day and the adventure had to be scrapped.
