My Flight Home

Don't u think this looks like a ship?  Denver Airport...

Went to Moline airport on Saturday May 26th and the plane from Chicago that would be going on to Denver was late, making it impossible for me to make connections in Denver for Redmond, SO back to Carol's... poor Carol and she thought she got rid of me!! HA!!
So the 27th back to the airport, try again.. got boarding pass and luggage checked, lots of moving things around so that both were under 50# each... Got to TSA and had the wrong boarding pass.. back to the check in counter, the machine was spitting our duplicate passes and i had the one for the person that checked in just b4 me!!!! Never occurred to me to check the names..... Well good to know.. Back to the TSA line.... and they had a thing that moves around you, you don't just walk thru it like in Redmond, and i LIT up... places were highlighted on her little screen, so i had to have a thorough pat down.. i mean THOROUGH, everywhere... i mean really, i am trying something nefarious !!! a terrorist.... suppose i am glad that they check but REALLY... i felt so very much safer and i am sure all the people that were there seeing the whole thing, did too.....
Got to my gate and they were already boarding..  got a bulkhead seat... my those are almost comfortable.... AND it was the most bumpy, horrid flight ever... weather, jostle, jostle, drop... even a little child screamed..... fun
Then in Denver did not really have long to wait for next flight BUT no... gate change, twice.... then the plane from Memphis was late due to weather, time changed at least 4 times!!!! Then they moved us, said they were boarding and we went down a flight of loooong stairs and down a loooong hallway to gate (it was a situation where you had to go out on tarmack to get to stairs to board plane).. THEN they had us stay in the hallway for a good 20 minutes.... i mean there were infirm older people, on crutches, in wheelchairs.... so people sat on the floor and waited....why we could not have just stayed in the waiting room until they were ready, who knows... a person did come by tho and checked us in so when they did actually board they did not have to do that too, we just trudged to the plane.... this was a bumpy flight too but not for long periods of time.... I am sure other people have stories of plane travel too, but this was a first for me to have like everything go wrong
And we got to Redmond just as the sun set.... really bright orange that turned darker and darker, with the mountains silhouetted  on the horizon, it was truly a wonderful, beautiful sight... 1st time seeing mountains for a month!!!!  It is flat, flat, flat in the midwest.. all the way from Iowa to Texas..  oh there are dips and heaves here and there but nothing high on the horizon that u can see for miles......
So... Take Care All and God Bless
