Travel Chronicles: Day One

The reason that I started this blog was mainly to keep my family up-to-date in what I was doing in Paducah. This week I’m going to Maryland to visit my family and since my family never reads the blog but my neighbors do, I have decided to document my travels to keep my neighbors up-to-date instead. I will try to write almost every day. Let’s see how that goes…

I started the day with my morning ritual of going to Etcetera Coffeehouse but today I was in a hurry and I was there only 20 minutes as opposed of the hour that I spend there usually. Then Mary Thorsby came to pick me and Dinsky up. We set up Dinsky at Mary’s house and left for the Paducah airport. I hope that Dinsky wants to come back home after a week in the Brockenborough (sp?) Palace.

The flight from Paducah to Memphis was uneventful except for a guy that told me that he recognized me from the Internet. I said probably but I have no idea what he meant. Note to self: The next time you book a flight out of Paducah always pick Seat A. The planes out of Paducah have only tree seats per row. Seat A, then the aisle, then Seats C and D. Why there isn’t a Seat B, I have no idea but Seat A has no one sitting next to you and leaving from Paducah that can be a real plus.

I arrived at Memphis at the gate that I was supposed to leave from and began writing this blog entry and lost track of time. I looked at the clock and it was ten minutes before my flight was leaving and there was no one at the gate. Clearly they had changed it. I ran as best as I could got to the right gate as they were closing the door and thankfully made it to Maryland savely where I met with my family and had some crappy pizza.

Now aren’t you glad you read all this nonsense and I’m going to do this regularly?

Glad you arrived safely! And Dinksy is doing just fine. He's a night cat, isn't he?
