Sparky's BA-A-A-A-C-K!

From D.C.... Hi, honey, I'm HOME! Eldy ought to know, 'cuz he picked me up this evening. I talked his ear off all the way home, telling him everything I did, and peppered him with questions about all our blogging friends, the motorhome, the weather.....and he talked MY ear off telling me everything that went on with the family this week, the grandkids, the neighbors....(Nobody got a word in edgewise, laughs E.)

This is a short blog just to let everyone know we are back online...Woo-hoo! Sparky had a great time flying...well, sort of....she LOVES airports and everything in them...the food, (of COURSE! laughs E.) the decor, the planes--Frontier has its tails painted, and Southwest has its wildly colored orange, blue and red planes. Sparky loves looking at the sky and scenery below, and of course, people watching at the airport is a great way to pass the time while you wait for your flight....the actual flights? That's another story...she has trouble with her ears, even using the AIR PLANES--those funky spiral/corkscrew rubber ear plugs that are supposed to equalize the air pressure as you ascend and descend, but she still has trouble with ear pain....She forgot to take a decongestant to help with that! Flights were uneventful and Sparky arrived in D.C. Tuesday evening, met at the Metro train station by her daughter, Kelly....They rode the Metro 15 minutes to Kelly's apartment in Springfield, VA. and there Sparky got acquainted with Moxie, Kelly's little puppy. You'll see her soon.....She was adorable!

Plans were made for the following day to HIT THE MOST AWESOME GROCERY STORE on the east coast---Wegman's....We'll tell you all about it tomorrow...see you then!


  1. I am with Sparky...I love to fly; I just don't like the layovers, delays, snow, ice, get the picture. Speaking of them!

  2. I always have loved flying, the smaller the plane the better. Welcome home:)

  3. Airports are great for people watching. Gald you are safely home

  4. Wow, can't wait to hear about Wegman's. We lived two blocks from the original Wegman's in Rochester, NY. That was about 13 years ago and it was a great store then!! I think that was about our favorite thing about Rochester;o))
