Glitter, glitz, and Is that my luggage?

I enjoy the window seat in the airplane.  Day or night the sites are so beautiful.  It is looking at life outside of our normal viewpoint and what an exceptional point of view. I took off at sunset heading Northeast.  I saw the hues of sunset but by the time I could take pictures;  it was too dark for the cellphone camera.

There were several pockets of turbulence so taking pictures of the night lights was a bit difficult.  But I got a few good shots.  I think I even got the monopoly neighborhood.

A funny story: during one of the flights the steward walked from the back of the plane to the front. He said to the lead stewardess, "There are still several people with electronics devices turned on."
Taking the microphone and triggering the key to open it she announces, "Our electronic detector is showing that many of you still have electronic devices turned on.  Please turn them of at this time."  With a VERY short pause she continued, "okay that is looking better.  Please continue turning off your electronic devices. Thank you."

View from a Window Seat

On a different flight, there was only one window seat left in the section that I like to sit. I am not a small woman but fit easily in the seat.  The gentleman in the aisle seat was over 300 pounds and overflowing his seat.  It was a 100% full flight. And who ended up sitting next to me??? Some man who was about 6'7" with broad shoulders.  I would guess he was at least 275 pound as he did not fit within his seat either.  As soon as we could lean our seats back, I did.  At least we were staggered a bit then.

So many bags are so similar that I found a trick from a friend who travels a lot with groups.  I tied a wild color fabric on the handle.  They give everyone in the group the same color fabric.  In a group you don't watch just for your bag.  You pull any bag with the same color fabric.
