It all started at the Tallahassee airport at 8am. Though my flight was rebooked for 5pm, my Dad's wasn't, and he was my ride. His flight left at 8:30. I sat for a while, but had luckily rebooked my 5pm Orlando flight to Noon. So at Noon I headed to the land of Mickey Mouse to sit until my flight to Hartford left at 7:30. There is not a lot to say about the next 7 hours, but here are a few choice observations.
- Cellphone chargers for models pre-1998 are not availabe. So if your cellphone dies, and you are remiss enough to forget your charger, the "Wireless Connection" store cannot help you.
- You can buy 4 minutes of talk time on a pay phone for $1. Which leads to a lot of absurdly short phone calls to everyone you know while you are board to tears in the Orlando airport.
- Apparently, racially charged epithets are ok if you are from a 'northern' state and not from the the deep south. I will not go into detail.
- When you are in a large international airport, you should inquire that there might be more than what you see. I spent 2 hours in the D gate, but was eventually enlightened that there was a 'Main Terminal' which was more glorious than I could have ever imagined.
It was a nice trip. I got to see the house my folks are building. It's going to be quite nice! I look forward to visits when it's all done. Just hope the weather is better.
It is President's Day today and just got back from a trip to Foxwoods (casino). This was a Christmas present from J, as he knows how much I love black jack. And now that love affair has blossomed, as I turned my $400 into $845!! Not quite as good as the Powerball people, but I'll take it!
