Up, Up and Away!

Good morning folks! I’m up in the sky right now. Specifically I’m 35,000 feet above the continental United States. I’ve been flying on this U.S. Air jet for the past four hours. I only have an hour to go until I land in Los Angeles at LAX.

“So how was the trip so far Ron?” you ask. Very good! Other than the cramped quarters where I am typing this blog posting (first time I’ve ever blogged 35,000 feet in the air – do I qualify for the “Mile High Club?”), everything went well at the Philly airport. I got through security without setting off any alarms. In fact I even got a pass on taking off my shoes. Maybe they know my feeling about that silliness of taking off the shoes. Maybe not. Maybe I just got lucky.

Well folks, I think I have this traveling thing down pat (no pun intended) now. I printed out my boarding pass at home. It worked at the airport. I got a regulation overhead bin sized bag so I didn’t have to check in my luggage. That worked! And I didn’t have to poop. Had to pee several times which caused a minor disturbance to my two very nice seat mates, They had to get up each time I had to go to the loo which is located right across from our seats. I’ll have to rethink choosing seats the next time when I make an airline reservation.

So in less than an hour I’ll land in LA. Pat is also in the air. I haven’t been able to text him (don’t know why, someone tell me what I’m doing wrong) but I’ll catch up with him at LAX, Should be fun.

Sorry about not being able to post any photos. I tried hooking up my iPhone to my MacBook Pro laptop (which I am using right now) but all kinds of funky things were happening. You’ll just have to use your imagination.

This is exciting folks!
