|The morning began in Castle Frostbite, and there were dachshunds. Seen here: Henry, Ban, and Raven.|
|...and then came the snowy drive to the place where the airplanes land...|
|...where yr crrspndnt was launched into the sky like a bird, and took a self-portrait using the book she was reading ...|
|...whereupon, after a brief stop in Cleveland...|
|...the day ended in Roseholme Cottage, and there were cats.|
I can't remember which of you guys referred to the seats on the emergency exit row as "Redneck First Class", but I've been using it faithfully ever since. Perhaps unsurprisingly, United calls it "Economy Comfort" and will let you pay an extra $30 to sit there. I did. I still referred to it as Redneck First Class.
I shared the little executive mailing tube on the CLE-IND leg with the Skidmore College women's tennis team and all their carry-on racquet. Perhaps not coincidentally, I bought a pair of cheap Sony noise-cancelling headphones and considered it a good purchase, even at extortionate airport pricing.
And now I am home.
