Yesterday, Friday the 7th of April, after the plan that you are about to read about below was finalized (booked-and-paid-for), I asked Patti the following question:
“My Dear One, do YOU want to write a Post about this or do you want ME to write a Post?”
I then added:
“If I write the Post, the basic message will be very short, about seven words.”
Patti has deferred to me. Unless she changes her mind and comes back to add more, this is it.
In seven very short words here it is:
Patti is homesick and needs a break!
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Of course there is a tad more to this story.
For the past several weeks, Patti has been mentioning how very VERY much she loves the month of May in Alaska. Saying things such as ..
“I always tell people, who want to visit Alaska, that May is perhaps the very best month to do do.”
“I so love watching the trees leaf-out during May.”
“I love planting my flowers during late May.”
A week or so ago I said to Patti,
“Would you like to go home to Alaska to enjoy the month of May My Dear One?”
Patti did not reply.
Thursday I said,
“My Dear One, you have not answered my question.”
Then Thursday I went on-line to Alaska Airlines and found that they do indeed fly into and out of Albuquerque New Mexico where we are heading this coming Friday the 14th of April.
Armed with this info, and the fact there are a number of flight options to fly from Albuquerque to Seattle and then to Anchorage, I told Patti about her options Thursday night.
Yesterday I said,
“Why don’t you just pull the trigger and ACTIVATE this plan?”
So Patti did just that. She will fly out of Albuquerque New Mexico on Wednesday the 3rd of May for Seattle and then North To Alaska and home in Anchorage.
“And Captain ..”
I am mulling my own options.
This I will say:
I am very VERY happy for Patti. She desperately needs a break and this should be-the-ticket.
Over and out .. Cap and Patti ..
A photo or two photos. We have been pretty busy enjoying life one-day-at-a-time.
We made two trips to the Grand Canyon. One last Tuesday and a second one last Thursday.
The below map ‘speaks-for-itself’.
A few photos.
Below our very first view of the entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park.
In the below photo, notice the brown colored sign between the two traffic lanes.
A close-up of the above brown colored sign.
“OK Captain. Pony-up with some buckeroos.”
It was worth each and every single cent. *See the rest of the story below.
Oh Yes. There were just a few others along for the scenery.
On the way up to Grand Canyon, there was another attraction that we also visited.
* Here is The Rest Of The Story about the above entrance fees. What I ended up paying was a mere US $10.00 for a lifetime pass to all of the National Parks. Nothing for the vehicle. When we made our second visit we just flew through after showing my new card with photo I.D. Go figure. I am not able to do so. Maybe a ‘perk’ for senior citizens.
