We were to fly OUT of Madison at 6:30 am but our intended plane had some sort of mechanical problem. Lucky for our full plane load there was another plane just sitting around doing nothing. We had a three hours lay over in Detroit so the slight delay didn't faze Zeus and me. I sat next to a very tall young man who was positively scrunched in his seat. To take him mind off of his discomfort we discussed his tour of colleges for his graduate interviews. I wished him luck.
Detroit has these large plant planters around with large stones being used as decorative mulch. I love how people felt the urge to make their marks on the rocks.
We had breakfast with Don Quixote and he was apparently as tired as I was. I remember when Zeus and I were first married and because we traveled to Wisconsin so Zeus could get his Master's degree in English, in one year.
Zeus provided me with a reading list of books that he thought I would enjoy reading. I sighed and looked at the list and decided to "improve" my reading education by starting with
I fell in love with the book.
When we took our middle son, James, to college, Boston College treated the parents to a fantastic
back to school type of experience. They provided us with mini lectures and the reading list for the incoming freshman. I wish I still had that list. Maybe I'll see if I can get a new one. I would love to see what's been added.
Here is the view from our 10th floor balcony. Beyond the pool and buildings is the ocean. I'm sure you will be seeing a picture of that in the morning light.
The hotel is beautiful Marco Beach Ocean Resort. Our rooms are lovely.
Ok, I admit I like to see towels folded this way. They make me smile.
I'm tired, it's been a long day. We rented a convertible, a silver Mustang. We're wild we are.
My mother informed me that nobody that lives in Florida would ever have a convertible. That's us, tourists in our convertible. That's me, with my hair blowing all over the place, holding that pinwheel and squealing, WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
I'll hollar at ya all later.
