Blimp Photo & Blimp Story

Above is the Outback Steakhouse blimp.

This blimp was at Cincinnati’s Lunken Airport last November.

This allows me to tell my Cincinnati blimp story.

Maybe 15 years ago, when I was working for a Cincinnati City Councilmember, a citizen called up to complain about the Goodyear Blimp.

The Goodyear blimp was in town for a Monday Night Football game.

The caller said the blimp was hovering outside her window and that the people inside the blimp were watching her undress. 

I can’t recall what I told her. I suppose I told her something because those were the type of phone calls that could go on for a long time. I could be with on the phone with her to this day if I let it go on.

Dealing with the public is always an education. In the end though you have to allow it to make you more human and gentle towards others.

  1. Maybe she should have closed the shades. That’s what I would have done.

  2. You would imagine. But it just does not work that way. It’s better to think the blimp is watching you and be able to tell people about it.
