Knitting on the Beach



I finally got on a plane and flew to the Florida gulf. It had been 15 years since I last flew. One day last fall, I decided I would make myself fly again to get away from the snowy winter weather. A major accomplishment for me. I had some medicinal assistance, I am not ashamed to say. We flew American and we had no troubles. Flights on time, no weather delays, no baggage problems, and no knitting needles problems.

One our way back, I had Fireman on my left, ( I wont look out the window) and guess who on the right?????
Oh I'll just tell you. It was an American Airlines Captian who made me feel at ease. He reassured me the plane had a great safety record. He helped me and I hope I helped him. He had to take the flight to return to his home because his teenage son was sick and his wife told him to get home. Can you believe my wonderful luck? I had a Captain sitting next to me and Fireman on the other side of me.

I will tell you tomorrw about my FO on vacation.

I have to say, however, to me there is no place like home!

Here in the NE it's snow, snow, snow. Beach and warm sound good to me.

Welcome home! Glad to hear you had a wonderful vacation. I'm so proud of you flying. I can't do it--even with meds! Also, Macy would be mad if I left her home.

Beach knitting is the best. I love that sleepy feeling I get from warm sun and rhythmic knitting.

Sounds like you had a wonderful vacation, even though our weather here on the island, wasn't the greatest. I hope you got to enjoy some sun and a little warmth. :)
