I am headed for Cincinnati to visit family and friends for a few days. Blogging will be light and variable.
For you aircraft buffs, that’s a Lockheed C-121C Super Constellation. My first flight was aboard a TWA Constellation from St. Louis to Detroit in 1957.
The lap of luxury, London to Singapore.
Hey, let’s take a slow plane to Hawaii.
Sorry about the blackout yesterday and Friday evening. The hotel blames it on the cable provider which also handles their wifi. Whatever. I’m home safe and sound and happy to report that the Pontiac performed flawlessly; no runs, no drips, no errors. I’ll post some pictures later after I download them, but here’s one that I took yesterday afternoon on the field showing the view that I usually have at a car show.
Your host here at chateau BBWW is at a car show this weekend, and the hotel wifi is not cooperating. He asked me to drop a note here just to indicate he’ll be back online tomorrow.
I’m heading out with some friends this morning for Lakeland, Florida, for the MIDFLORIDA Auto Show and Lake Mirror Concours, so this is it for blogging this morning. I’ll report in later today and tomorrow with photos and stories about our trip.
If you’re in the Lakeland area, the show starts Saturday at 10. I’ll be in the American Production section on Tennessee Avenue between Lemon and Main.
My flight from Kansas City back to Miami takes off at 5:28 a.m., so I’ll be on the road by 3:15 a.m. to get checked in and on the way.
Needless to say, I’ll catch up with you when I get home. Until then, take the morning off.
As Fats Domino noted last night, I’m going to Kansas City this weekend for the 2nd annual Midwest Dramatists Conference, held in the lovely suburb of Olathe, Kansas. It will be three days of readings, discussions, and just plain camaraderie that happens when writers get together. (Oh, yes, there will be plenty of what Harry Truman referred to as “striking a blow for liberty,” but I’ll be by-sitter for that.)
So things are going to be quiet here, at least as far as blogging the news goes. I’m sure a lot of attention will be paid to the theatre going on in the Senate today, but I prefer the real thing, at least this weekend.
I’ll be back Sunday and pick up after you.
This was a little different than my American Eagle flight last week.
And passengers complained yesterday because our flight was delayed 15 minutes by a rainstorm in Miami…
I’m heading out this morning for Cincinnati to visit my parents. Things will be a little quiet here until I get back on Tuesday, but I’ll be checking in.
This has been a hell of a weekend in every conceivable way.
To quote Lanford Wilson, “[He] didn’t believe in death and I don’t either…. There’s no such thing. It goes on and then it stops. You can’t worry about the stopping, you have to worry about the going on.”
I say this just about every time I get back from Inge: I love going and doing all the fun and creative things we do there, but there’s nothing like getting back to your own bed.
I’ve got a lot of things to catch up on, including news and work and laundry, so this will be a short blogging day.
Thanks, Bob, for picking me up last night.
I’m on the road this morning back to Miami from the Missouri Self-Taught: Lanford Wilson and the American Drama conference. We had a great time and I’ve got some pictures to share when I get home, but right now the mission is to get to the airport and on the plane to Dallas and then to Miami.
See you when I get back.
I’m on the road via Chicago to Columbia, Missouri, home of the University of Missouri and where the Missouri Self-Taught conference is taking place. I’ll check in when I check in.
The flight was late leaving Miami due to weather somewhere else, and the flight was overbooked. By the time they were boarding us, the gate agents were offering a $1,000 voucher and all sorts of goodies, including hotel vouchers and first-class upgrades, to any takers. If I didn’t have just two days with my parents, I would have snapped it up.
Enterprise upgraded my bare-bones reserved car to a Nissan Rogue, which is a station wagon wannabe with more bells and whistles than a carnival organ. The Red Roof Inn had trouble with the router in my wing so this is my first access to WiFi. Oh, the horror.
Anyway, I’m here with Mom and Dad, catching up and offering a hand where I can.
And the world goes ’round…
I haven’t been to the Keys since Hurricane Irma, but today I’m going down to visit friends who made it through. So I’ll see you later.
