Last day of vacation.

Everything went so well, so you have to know it wouldn't last. We got up at 6 am, midnight EST. We didn't want to be rushed. Had a really nice breakfast, then we were driven to the airport. So far, so good. After arriving at the airport, we found out our flight to Philadelphia was 3 hours late. That meant we would miss our connecting flight to Orlando. All other flights to Orlando were booked solid as it is a weekend. Our only way home was through Miami.
Thank goodness Judy was so understanding as she was our ride.
Picked up Maggie and headed back to Gainesville. We got in close to 3am and after greeting Abby and letting both dogs out to do their thing, we fell into bed after being up for 27 1/2 hours. When I was younger, no problem, but not so much now. I wish there was a way to get to Europe by train. They are always on time, are clean and roomy. Air travel is not the fun it use to be. As one man put it, they are putting us in steerage, or better yet the cattle car. Everything is crammed into as little space as possible, or is that impossible.
Slept till 8 on Sunday. Mike did his washing first and I finished mine about 5pm. Took a little nap with the dogs, then got up and watched tv until midnight. I am trying to get back to US time. Woke up this morning at 6. Think another nap is in my future.
Until next time, signing off
