My flight back to Florida was much better than my flight to PA. I got in at about 9:45am and it was smooth and on time for both flights. Chalk one up to Air Tran and thumbs down for Delta. They claimed they couldn't find the plane while we were stuck in NYC and then they couldn't find the pilot. Hmmm...
So anyway, I sure missed my boy - but I had a great time. Next time I will be able to see everyone as I am hoping we can stay in Brady for a couple of weeks. Army allowing though - I am guessing he will still be active duty.
I also want to sincerely thank my daughter, who passed me in the airport as she had to get back to Texas today. I didn't even get to see her before she left, but it's ok - we will see her Friday when we get there. But anyway, THANK YOU, BREEZY!!
And you know something I realized last night? Kevin's Purple Heart ceremony will be on the second anniversary of him leaving for basic training. Yep - he left on July 19 of 2007. What a coincidence, huh? Almost seems fitting, I suppose.
So now I have a request of all the E Brady and surrounding area residents, if y'all don't mind. We are looking to renovate the old video store space into an apartment for Kevin and I for when we come and visit. Does anybody have any friends that are architects and contractors and electricians and gosh knows what else we would need? I am going to be blunt and say that we can't afford high end work, so cheap people only need apply, lol. I hope to call the Legions in the area and see if they have a network of business owners, but time is of the essence if we are going to have it all done by July when we come home. My phone time is so limited and gosh knows when I will get to make the phone call. So anyway, if anyone has any friends or relatives that are willing to make a buck or two, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I think my first order of business will be an architect, right?
And now I am going to end with a couple of funny photos of Kevin at McDonalds right before I left. He is such a ham!
First 2 from the Nov kit!
