30,000' in the ol USA!!

31 January 2011
ok folks! I was able to swooze my way through immigration using 100% spanish with two officials who wanted to know more about how I could survive on a boat for 2 months than how I lost my form! Thank god I listened and practiced mucho espaniol this trip! I was stamped and on my way in 15 minutes!! We passed through security and I got frisked and had my bags gone through...must have been profiled or something? Our friend Dave from Scott Free's crew was on our flight too, and has offered us a ride home since he lives in Snohomish!...SCORE!!!

The layover in LAX flew by with not much time to lollygag around. A couple of Whoppers and fries later we were boarding the second leg....and here I am, logged on the the in flight internet for 10 bucks for some entertainment value!

Feels good to be through all the security and immigration measures, albeit it was pretty easy. Should be home after 1130pm with a one hour cutback on my watch. Ooops, hang on...."well yes miss flight attendant...I'd love a glass of red wine!" ok, I'm back!

Oh, Poppie says hi to all and would have liked to contribute to the text but his fingers JUST don't work on this little fact, every time he does an email to's, "AH DAMMIT! HEY I'm always busy doing something else...hang on dad...let me fix it...."what the heck are you doing in my spreadsheet program? " "I DONT KNOW! I DIDN'T TOUCH ANYTHING!"
so now you get the deal.

my salad just arrived....MMMMMMMM.....looks good!

not much else to tell, other than I already miss the sun, but looking forward to being home among friends. My life is GOOD!

Love to all, closing comments coming soon :)
