That's my boy.. living it up on airport cheese, crackers, and iced tea in the VIP lounge at Newark airport, and playing his new Minecraft app. He loves to build things... What is he building in Minecraft? An airport? The Colosseum? Saint Peter's dome? Nope. He's building a supermarket. Anyway, he's happy waiting for our flight!
At this point, the crackers and cheese are welcome. The Wifi is so-so. The stress levels are much lower than in the last few days. Lisa seems happy that we're finally on the move with one large bag checked and on the plane and each of us with a carry-on. We changed my original "carry-on only" plan--she had too many clothes of her own, and she even packed that damned hair dryer!
I'm happy that I found a work-around for that darned outdoor electrical problem, so my security lights will be working while we're away. The house and garden are buttoned up tight, the alarm company notified who to call "in case", my best friend learned how to do our alarm and keys and will check on the house each day. Most of my tomato plants have late-blight, so there's not much harvesting anyway right now... Did I turn off the furnace and the water? Oh... yes. I did.
Ok, all set! Mind clear!
The flight leaves in an hour or so.
Buckle your seat belts and come along with us...
Italia, qui veniamo!
