The Air National Guard has crews that rotate over to Germany on a fixed schedule. I had been looking at the schedule for a while. Some of the origins are not on my list, but I had been contemplating Hawaii. After all, if I could fly there and back over a long weekend for free – it seemed like a good deal. A good enough deal that two of the teens wanted to join me.
The air crew arrived on Tuesday and had originally said no passengers. I had been hoping, by checking back, that I might be able to get them to reconsider.
So this weekend I am not on the beach at Maui, nor visiting friends stationed at Tripler. There is no surf, nor sand. And if we want anything that resembles fresh fish – it is likely to be flash frozen.
OTOH – I guess I have been spared some really long flights. And if the AF does not like knitting, it would be a really long, long trip. I am hoping that when the Alaska weekend rolls around in April that it does not fall on either Passover or a meeting in Munich.
Cleaning? knitting? Spinning?
Reading and listening. I just received several Kate Wilhelms’ on CDs as MP3 files, including No Defense and Desperate Measures.
