Like a Bird Flying South…

Dear and I boarded a flight at Seatac Airport on Sunday afternoon to LAX with very little Security issues and once again made the comment …
“Flying out of Seattle is so nice compared to other airports”!! I got this shot of Rainier before everything clouded over!

Then we talked to our seating companion who flew out of Canada to the U.S. and told us he had to go through 4 security screenings and then had to have a full body search. He couldn’t have anything under the seat in front of him except for a size restricted personal bag, no carry on luggage.  So flying into the U.S. is a bit tough right now…

We arrived in L.A. and made it back to the condo in great time hardly ever needing to use our brakes which is a good thing because our brake lights were not working! Thank you to my sister Kathy and our BIL Len being brave enough to deliver that car without brake lights to us at the airport.

Dear caught a icky bug and is under the weather so I had to pick him up from work early today. I was able to pick up the part we needed for the car and it’s working beautifully now so I’ll make a visit to the CHP tomorrow and have them OK the repair so we don’t have to pay a fine. Oh right I forgot to tell you that over the Christmas break my brother from Dallas was using our car and got a ticket for not having brake lights. Ouch! We had no idea the brake lights weren’t working when we loaned him the car…

Today I’ve enjoyed the lovely winter skies here in Camarillo. Sunny and warm with great clouds. Tomorrow Willow and I will resume our walks! Yippee! So much to catch up on. Dear cleaned the condo real nice before he came north so I don’t have much to do around here. Hope you all are getting in the swing of things in 2010!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Hi, Ellen! Happy New Year, my friend! We are back from our trip too, and so great to catch up with you here and see how you had the holidays. :o) LOVE that photo at the top…breathtaking! Hope Mr. feels better. Happy Days ((HUGS))

  2. Sorry you’re under the weather and hope you recover quickly. Glad you got the brake lights fixed. I came for Ruby Tuesday (luv the bus) and Blue Monday (cute polka dotted teapots), but it was this photo that will remain with me as I move through the day. Oh my … that first shot is breathtaking 😉
    Hugs and blessings,

  3. What a beautiful picture of Mt. Rainier… now that you mentioned it, I remember whenever we visited Seattle years back, we always liked to go to Rainier Square in DT. Your LA weather is much for me to envy. We’re having minus 15C now and will dip lower later. Enjoy your California winter (?) and have a marvellous year, Ellen!

  4. Well, we’ve got cloud cover but definitely not sunny and warm. It’s been snowing again since last night! It is a nice postcard perfect, light fluffly snow though so that’s okay.

    Glad you arrived safe and sound. Hope your hubby feels better soon!

  5. I bet it feels good to settle back into normal again – even though I’m sure you’re missing the young ones. Hope D. is feeling better soon. Enjoy your stroll with Willow tomorrow!

  6. Beautiful pic of Mt. Ranier. Glad your flight was stress-free. I am already dreading our next flight out of YVR (Vancouver Airport)…they are suggesting there will be 4 hour waits to clear security to fly to the USA…and next to no carry-on allowed!
