Packed and Ready To Go

This time tomorrow I'll be on that silver tube in the sky (aka American Airlines) headed towards the sunny and warm skies of California. 

While on FaceTime with Pat last night, I suggested we double check our flight times. Of course there was a snag. Since we made our flight reservation last April, American Airlines has changed the time of our flight four times.  Good thing we checked because American Airlines had Pat leaving Los Angeles at 6:00 am in the morning and me at 8:20 am!  How did that happen?  I guess it was because Pat had to make a connecting flight from Toronto to Philadelphia then Philadelphia to Los Angeles. 

Pat called American Airlines and they changed my flight too 8:20 am so I could travel with Pat. No charge but I didn't get my extra legroom seat that I paid and extra $85 for.  I'm not complaining though.  Well, maybe a little bit.  At least they have us seated together and I don't have to pay the extra $200 for changing my flight.  

I always get nervous when making trips like this, worried that I'm going to forget something. I've already reminded Pat several times not to forget his passport.  Or else Trump's minions will arrest him at the border.  

I have all my chargers, underwear, shirts, socks and let's see what else. And extra pair of pants and my Macbook Air and an old iPhone that I use as a backup camera.  

Ready to go folks. The toughest part of the trip is coming up now, the airline flight out. Getting through TSA.  I should get a pass this time because I'm seventy-five years old. We will see.  

Wish me luck! 


  1. Preparing for a trip is always a traumatic experience, but once you're on your way it'll be fun! I'm excited for you.
    Hopefully Pat won't be detained by the Trump Airport Brigade.

    1. Jon,
      I am packed and ready to go. Still haven't decided on what outfit (gay me) that I'm going to wear on the plane. I'm excited!
