    It has finally arrived, after a very long winter. DW is feeling great after her kidney stone issues. Best she’s felt in a couple trips.

    We just checked into our Park and Fly in Madison, Wi and now we’re grabbing some dinner. Flight leaves at 8:50 tomorrow morning.

    Have a splendid time, Jeff! Hope you both enjoy the time away. I'm about two weeks and a couple of islands away from you. Save me some sunshine! ;)

    Hope you both enjoy wonderful weather with lots of sunshine. We were in Hawaii (Kauai, Maui, and Oahu) for the entire month of March and had lots of rain, wind, and cold days. However, a bad day in Hawaii is better than a good day anywhere else!

    I don’t know why I waste my time checking the weather there but right know it only shows a few showers every other day or so. Some in the morning and some in the afternoon. We’ll see. I’m not going to lose sleep over it. I just love being there.

    PaulaC has it right. I’ll take a bad day there anytime.

    If everything is on time, we get there at 6pm. Which isn’t too bad. Unpack, get a bite to eat and go to bed. That usually works well for us.

    DW wants to hit a craft show at The Cliffs in Princeville on Sunday. There’s a woman there that makes some shirts and dresses that my wife loves. We’ve been seeing her for the last few years now.

    DW saw somewhere that Jack Johnson and a few others where having a benefit concert for people affected by the flood. She was able to get a couple tickets online today so we are really looking forward to that.

    Made it the airport after a lite breakfast. So happy watching DW since this is the first trip in quite a few that she feels really good.

    First leg Madison to Denver.

    Well, if you can't smell the flowers, that's a great second choice! LOL!

    Looks like we land at 8:30pm so not too bad. Now that I ate, we’ll just unpack and go to bed but we’ll see.

    When I was first in the Navy in the early 1970s, my flight home to Hawaii from LA was overbooked. I think it was on PanAm. They asked for volunteers to wait 30 minutes to get on another plane. The original plane was a 707 (remember those?) The new plane was a 747 (in those days, it was pretty new.) I'd never flown on one, so opted to wait the 30 minutes and get on the new flight. There were about 10 passengers on the plane. It was a great flight - everyone was invited to eat the fresh First Class buffet food, and drinks were comped. It was a fine time. :thumbup:
