...almost. Did you think that I fell off the face of the earth? I have been on the Alaskan Cruise.
I am almost home. This is the difficult part is the trip home. We arrived at the airport early in fact very early. It was a good thing because with all the cruise ships coming in the lines are extremely long!
For the bag check I was the only one with fly-by status. So I waited with the group. The line is now about five times longer. So I took a picture for you.
Over the next few weeks. I will share random pictures and stories with you. The trip was both fabulous and challenging! My cabin was to the left of the man waving.
I wish that all flights were 2/3 full but not charge any more for the flight. In other words that planes were slightly more spacious. Isn't that the wish of every traveler?
We got lucky on half of the flights to Alaska. Dale and I got to sit in an exit row on one flight and 2 in a 3 seat row on another flight.
During this 9 day vacation I took about 5,000 photos. I am currently in the painful process of sorting pictures. There are the should be okay to delete, good, great, awesome, curious, foodies, exceptional enough to put in an album and really want in that album but will print for a scrapbook. The final category of photos will come all of the categories listed before and those will be the ones that I share with you.
More to come! When I decide which ones to share. ;^)
Mid morning this morning I received a text that my connecting flight in Denver was Delayed about an hour. It was a rare day that I needed to get home today. I was scheduled for the last flight out of Denver so if it got cancelled I would not make it home until the next day. That just wasn't acceptable.
Luckily Southwest Airlines still has no charges for rescheduling flights. I jumped online and found a flight that went through Chicago Midway. It was the second to the last flight of the night and was only delayed by 15 minutes.
I arrived at the Houston airport to find out that my first flight was also delayed. When we landed I checked the app on my phone and found out that I has plenty of time. There were a few others who were fretting. I asked them where they were flying to and I was able to provide gate numbers and estimated departure times for them. Many were delayed or at gates close enough to easily get to in time.
On the other hand, I had to walk ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE AIRPORT! The walk felt good.
The thing about traveling for work is that I get to travel into and out of all kinds of weather situations. I have naturally wavy hair. One would think that cutting hair so that it is lighter would allow the curl to come out.
But the other day when I went into the bathroom, I saw my hair rolling in a beautiful curl over my shoulder. It was brought out by the heat and humidity in the region.
Now if I tried to get it to curl like this, I am sure that it would do anything except what I wanted.
I looked out the window of the plane and was amazed. There was an angel taking off from a cloud! It must be a father and child. Because look closely and you can see the youngster just a few steps behind.
Misty Blue and Duchess rested om the couch while I worked at my desk. Just then something caught my eye.
Mischievous Misty looked all prim and proper with a lace covering over her head. Somehow she had pushed herself far enough under the end table to make the lace doily fall across her forehead.
I had to act fast in order to get a picture. Because no matter how deeply she is sleeping whenever I moved she hears me and jumps up.

I finally had a few hours to spend in garden weeding. I am not quite done yet. Who's kidding? I won't ever be done weeding. It is like doing dishes. Every time you have them done more dirty dishes appear.
I was excited to see the mid summer and fall plants coming in thick despite the weeds. There is rain due in the next 24 hours. After digging in the dirt, I can say that the top soil needs the moisture.
I hope that you enjoy the photos. My favorite is the hollyhock growing through the babies breath. If you find yourself in the area drive by and enjoy the real flowers. :^)
