The Friendly Skies.

I’ve been speaking with Earl throughout the afternoon today. He’s been sitting on his flight bound home. It’s been sitting on the runway in Indianapolis for approximately three hours. No food, no water, no deposit, no return. That’s right, the average American pays hundreds of dollars for the privilege of sitting in a aluminum paper-towel tube in the middle of a runway without amenities.

It’s is one of my greatest hopes that the airlines permanently go bankrupt. Perhaps then we’ll all slow down just a bit and drive an electric car to our desired destination.

Today is catchup day. The washer is spinning wildly, the dryer is turning at a slower pace and I’m doing my assignments for school. Earl and I are going to Albany this weekend for some bear fun and I’d like to have my homework under control so I don’t feel overwhelmed when we get back on Sunday.

Of course Mr. Curiosity had to sit on my lap and lend his opinion to multiplying and dividing equations with fractions in them.

Tonight I’m picking up Earl at the airport after his week away on business. We’re then joining my sister for supper. She’s heading back to Moscow on Sunday. I sometimes wonder if we’d enjoy visiting Moscow while they’re out there. I’m sure that would be an interesting experience.
