  1. These are such great, caring places. We have a place in Vancouver called Canuck Place sponsored mainly by the local NHL hockey team. It is an old mansion in one of the ritziest parts of the city and it is so full of kindness and support for the families giving them a place to stay while their children receive treatment or hospice care.
    Kudos to them.

  2. Plane pull? ACK my BACK! I am just getting over a 8 week healing process for a low back injury! That is amazing that only that amount of people can pull a plane!
    I hope you are feeling better Susan...

  3. Great place for the families in their time of need! Well I don't think I would want to be on that team of 20 pulling that airplane! Thanks for hosting this site and have a great Outdoor Wednesday! And a wonderful week : )

  4. Years ago I had the opportunity to help decorate a Ronald McDonald house. I know I recieved much more then I gave. What a blessing.

    Thanks for everything you do.

    TTFN~~ Claudia

  6. Susan, I've never heard of this. Amazing that 20 people can pull a huge plane.
    Hope you are feeling better this week. Thanks for hosting Outdoor Wednesdays. It's one of my favorites! ~ Sarah

  7. Hi Susan - I joined in but ended up with a 2nd link from July that has nothing to do with Outdoor Wed.???? Can you please delete it - I tried and it did not work. :(
    Thanks in advance. Glenda

  8. What a very cool idea for a fund raising contest.

  9. Hi, Susan...are you doing better? I sure hope so.
    Thanks for hosting...and this is a really neat post.

  10. I clearly do not get how to link. The url looks right ....http://pats-addition.blogspot.com/2009/09/how-does-my-garden-grow.html...but says not found?? If you click on go to blog it goes.
    Love everyone's pictures, thanks for hosting

  11. What a great way to raise money for such a great cause. Anyone who i have known that has stayed at a Ronald McDonald House has always raved of their hospitality. The plane idea is awesome. I have never heard of such a thing. very cool! Have a great day and thanks for hosting this great meme!

  12. Hi Susan,

    What fun for all those people pulling an plane, they will certainly have a story to tell their grandchildren. Ronald McDonald house is a brilliant place. We need more...

    Happy Outdoors Wednesday Susan, it's a glorious spring day here in Australia and I have posted on another favourite flower the clematis.

  13. Ronald's House is a FAB charity! Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

  14. I can't help but think that for at least some, that competition spells H-E-R-N-I-A

  15. I just deleted the 2nd post and got rid of it - no problem. McDonald's house was so helpful for a member of my family a while back. They are great. Thanks so much for hosting again.

  16. That's really neat, Susan! This is a first as I've never heard of anything like this before.

    Happy OW and thanks for hosting...

  17. I've never heard of a plane pull! They certainly deserve to raise lots of money if they can pull that plane, and it's a very worthy cause. Happy Outdoor Wednesday. :)

  18. That is so cool, it must be great fun to watch the teams pulling the plane. The Ronald McDonald house is a very good charity to support.

  19. THAT is amazing!! [When our little 5 month old grandson had open heart surgery....our daughter stayed at a RMH!! They're an amazing charity!!!]

    My Outdoor Wednesday is all about a Marshland nearby....waterfowl and Autumn foliage!

    Come by & see

  20. What an adventure!

    I explored the Jogging trail this time.

  21. Thanks for hosting Susan. I hope you're feeling better! The Ronald McDonald house in Austin was a great comfort to some dear friends year ago when their child was seriously ill. They do wonderful work. This contest is a great way to make money! I had no idea that a group of people that small could move something as large as an airliner. Should have paid more attention in physics I guess lol. Kathy

  22. What a fun event. Would like to see the tugging and cheering! as excitement fills the air.
    Wednesday Blessings ;-)

  23. My daughters have done volunteer projects for Ronald McDonald House but never an airplane pull... interesting!

  24. I have volunteered on many projects for our local Ronald McDonald house over the years, but never an airplane pull! How fun that would be!

    Thank you for hosting Outdoor Wednesday!

  25. Very intersting post Susan...thanks for hosting this event!

    Hope all is well with you!

  26. The Ronald McDonald house is a wonderful charity. We have never needed to live in one, we have always lived in close proximity to large hospitals, but I am so thankful that it is there for others who do need it. Thank you Susan, for hosting OW! Hugs, Cindy S.

  27. Hi Susan, My friend was helped by Ronald McDonald when her child was desperately ill.

  28. Hi Susan, I've heard of Tractor and Truck Pulling, but never Plane Pulling! Bet that was neat to watch! The Ronald McDonald Houses are wonderful charities!

    Thanks for hosting this event! I believe this is my first entry, and I am glad to be a part of it! ~Rhonda :)

  29. It was nice of you to feature a great place that really helps others. I have read about plane pulling, but never saw one. I always enjoy your outdoor sights.

  30. That is the coolest thing! Thanks for sharing!

  31. Hi Susan, thanks for hosting Outdoor Wednesday..we have many families stay at the Ronald McDonald house in town while they stay near their sick babies.. a wonderful place.

    I have never seen an airplane pull!!Great shots!! I am going to show my husband these pictures... hugs, Baba

  32. I've heard about plane pulls but this is fun to see. Did you attend this? Ronald McDonald Houses are so important to families. Great post.


  33. Cool! I never knew that an airplane can be pulled by a mininum of 20 ppl. Thanks for sharing!

  34. People pulling planes-- who would've thought?

    This is my first Outdoor Wednesday. Thank you for hosting-- great photos all around!

  35. That is a wonderful charity!
    My niece is a doc at St Jude's Children's Hosp..another caring place!

  36. Susan,

    I have never seen an airplane pull before! We think the Ronald McDonald house is a wonderful charity who provides a warm and comfortable home away from home for families who need to be close to their sick little ones. We have one here in SLC.
    Thanks for sharing! Also for hosting this each week!!!

  37. I am pretty sure Saint Louis has a Ronald House too. Great cause and wow I can't imagine trying to pull one of those big planes. Ouch!
