Home at last

Highlights of the past few days:

The Southwest Airlines stewardess flight attendant who improvised (or perhaps it was scripted) the safety lecture: "If you are seated with a child or with someone who acts like a child...."

Same flight attendant advising the group of pharmacy students from University of Nebraska Medical Center on the proper way to imbibe while in Las Vegas: "One beer, one water, no shots."

Same flight attendant instructing passengers of the seatbelt inspection: "Our attendants will be coming around to make sure your belts match your shoes." (One wonders if this woman used to do standup or aspires to it.)

Seeing the beautiful green hills of Solano and Napa counties.

Dinner at Merchant and Main with Brian's old friend and soon-to-be boss.

Dinner with Thumper and her hubby.

Touring the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, CA.

Happening to meet KLOVE radio personalities John and Sherry Rivers at said tour. (We did not take their picture.)

But the best of all: coming home to our children.

Did you get a bag of Belly Flops? What a deal! I still have mine from a year ago...ugh.

I think I had the same stewardess on a flight from Spokane to Boise! Funny. Unless they hire a lot of ex-comics. Glad you had a good trip and are home safe and sound with your wee ones.

The best part *is* always getting home to the kids.

Sounds like a great time....and I know that feeling about getting home to the kids...nothings better :)

I heard that certain airlines are more fun to ride than others because of the flight attendents humor. I think that's why they get hired.

The only flying I have done since becoming an adult has been without my husband and kids. The best part was getting back to them. But that flight attendants sense of humor would have helped.

Thanks for coming by today and for linking me!
