After a 4:00 (am) towncar reservation failed to show up for airport transportation two days before Christmas, I had a feeling I was in for a rocky few days. After finding a taxi and scrambling through the airport, I finally made it on the plane, only to find out that there was a problem with the fuel gauges in the cockpit. No worries though, the pilot assured me over the loudspeaker, “This plane is old enough that it still has an actual dip-stick gauge to check the fuel level.” Comforting to say the least.
After waiting an hour+ to take off, I finally made my way down to California, where I enjoyed a few days off and some pleasant weather. I then returned to Oregon only to be stricken with one of the worst cases of the Flu I think I’ve ever had in my life. Today is the first day I’ve been able to sit up in bed for more than a minute and grab my laptop.
So to all my friends & readers, I want to wish you a Happy, Healthy, Air-travel-trouble-free New Year.
I’m not off to a very good start, but I’m sure some of you might be!
and until I get fully back into the swing of things, here’s something for you to contemplate, from agency The Bridge in Glasgow.
