Should say welcome back... [click on pictures to enlarge]After our great night at The Slippery Noodle I had a nice sleep in the next morning and when I finally got up I had another nice midwest homemade breakfast. Eggs and bacon never fails.
We lounged around most of the morning, and after a quick but important errand Rush and I swapped a lot of music we had stored on our laptops. I burned Powderfinger and Muse and Kings of Leon and Rush uploaded them. I uploaded some old Elton John and Rush [go figure] and some other oldies. It was nice to relax and sharing music is certainly a great way to spend a morning.
I Love You, Man but we were both asleep before the end of the credits and I was sent off to my little bed in her daughters room.
We eventually made our way to the airport in the snow. The driving was horrible and after dinner in a retro restaurant, with the worst drinks ever. Rush left and I made my way through security. [another travel tip. wear slip on shoes for ease and speed and if you see a sign that says Expert Traveler enter it takes you to the head of the line waiting to have their boarding passes checked before they enter security. I entered by mistake and almost left and the man ahead of me said "follow me" apparently it is for "special" people, I don't remember who, but they can't tell others they can't use the entrance. I told the man I loved him as I cut about 30+ people in line]
In this case hurrying did me no good since my flight to Boston via Chicago had to be changed and I took a direct to Boston bright and early the next day. I was able to get my luggage off the Chicago bound plane and headed to a hotel for the short night. Rush was home safe and sound by now and I didn't want her out in the weather again to get me. The plane did leave in the morning, on time but with a layover in Baltimore that almost didn't leave because of a flight attendant/passenger altercation.. I'll share that one later.
Despite the travel mishaps I had a great time with Adam and his family [check out his blog] and with Rush [check out her website]. I will be heading back to the midwest but plan on waiting until the weather is better.... much better.
