NOV 28, 16 .. SAFELY INTO SEATTLE FROM HONG KONG ..

My flight from Hong Kong arrived over 1-hour early. This allowed Patti, who at the time of my arrival here in Seattle was in Portland Oregon waiting for her connecting flight to Phoenix, and I to talk several times. Had I been on time, Patti would have been in the air from Portland to Phoenix.

It looks like I could be an in-patient at the Mayo Hospital in Phoenix this evening. Patti has been on the phone with Mayo and things seem to be really moving along in a positive manner.

Patti has been so busy getting a myriad of details arranged on short notice. I fall down in Dubai last Friday, and Patti’s life changed drastically.

Below are a few photos I snapped on my Hong Kong to Seattle flight.

The Hong Kong Int’l Airport Control Towers are becoming old friends to me.

Will these three photos be my last ever, in this lifetime, look at Hong Kong?

The food was every bit as good to eat as it looks in these photos.

Breakfast before touch-down in Seattle. I opted for a Chinese Breakfast entree.

The Delta Airlines Business and First Class Lounge in Sea-Tac, the Seattle Tacoma International Airport.

As I sit, this left leg of mine is sure in crisis. Getting to, and negotiating a restroom, is a real challenge.

However, I am still smiling and still grateful for all the positives in my life.

Cap.

    Just read your update my friend. I can’t believe that you are still taking photos in the middle of all this……. You are one of a kind.

    Do not worry Cap we will be going to Russia when you are better.

    Take care, my prayers are heading your way.
