I’m Back…

Oh, I’m back from Colorado. Yesterday was a loooong day! I left my brother’s house at 6:00 AM in a shuttle that took me to the Denver Inter. Airport. I arrived home at 11:30 PM! I did fine until we got near Minneapolis Airport. They were having such a torrential rainstorm no planes could land. The airport was shut down! We flew to Rochester, Minn. and were descending when suddenly we went up! Too many planes were having to land there! We didn’t have enough gas to go on to another city. We circled around and began to descend again…we suddenly went up again! Everyone was getting so frustrated. Finally we were able to land. It took about an hour and a half or even two hours before we could refuel because of the planes ahead of us! Finally we got to go on to Minneapolis and land! Everyone had missed their connecting flights by this time. We were instructed on what to do. I went to the help place and received a new ticket for 7:30. I’m sorry I can’t remember the exact time.

My food intake yesterday was horrible! My main diet was airplane snacks! I ate a coney dog and onion rings before my plane left Minn. I sure hope for good meals today, starting out with breakfast!

It was so good to see Jerry last night waiting for me at the airport! It had been such a long day. But it was wonderful seeing my mom, my sister, my two brothers and sisters-in-law, my cousin and some friends! We were all from Michigan, Oregon and Colorado. My mom was a wonderful reason to all meet together.

I left my camera at my brother’s house so he’s mailing it to me according to my sister-in-law. Oh, I hope she’s right! I can’t live without my camera! There are so other details I’m just not quite ready to write about right now…maybe later.

Home never looked so good! Home Sweet Home! Jerry is a great person to come home to!

    I’m so glad you got back safe. Arn’t planes frustrating to travel on sometimes? Will look forward to the pictures. Hugs, Sue


    • Thanks Sue. I sure missed having my computer. I missed reading blogs and facebook. Now I’m slowly getting to read but I can’t just sit here, so it’s going to take me a while to get caught up. I can’t wait to get my camera!!! Oh well.

      Thanks Pam. I’m kind of waiting for my camera. I left it in Richard’s computer room. Cookie said he’d mail it right away but I don’t know if he did. I don’t want to bug him but I want my camera! Grandma’s doing very well.
