Home in Mayberry!

The flight home was uneventful yesterday, but the ride home over the mountain got a little too exciting. Blood Mountain didn’t extract any blood, but it did claim our vehicle in a tight curve, luring it over to the shoulderless shoulder and into the ditch. Our guardian angel kept us safe, even during the snap roll that left us upright and pointed directly into the mountain, rather than over the other side down into the ravine. Thanks be to God that neither of us was seriously hurt, but my shoulder harness sure left an ache in my chest! That is much better than other alternatives, of course.

Clothes are now washed, and the suitcase didn’t get to sit idle long. Dick is working on our flight plan to get us to NH tomorrow for the annual sibling gathering, with Amy/Jason/Alex joining us this year. I am up for my co-pilot duties, and weather is looking good, so it should be a smooth flight. Hopefully, Mr. Alex will be a good passenger:-) We'll forgive him, even if he isn't!

Tighten your seat belts; trays upright and locked! Away we go!!!

Here's to a safe flight, both going and coming! Enjoy the family - Marj is looking down and smiling, I'm sure. I know she'll be missed. But the circle will be unbroken!
I'm looking forward to seeing you when you get home.

We'll stay home when we get too old to travel!
