Queenb, I hope I get to travel to as many places as you have during my life. You always seem to be somewhere beautiful and thrilling.
It's exactly two weeks before I go to Alaska and I'm very excited. I'm not so excited about being on a plane for 7 1/2 hours alone with my five-year-old, but hopefully that will go fast.
I'm also glad I"m not connecting through Chicago. I've not had very good luck with Chicago lately. The time before last that I connected through there, my plane sat on the tarmac for over three hours because a thunderstorm had backed up the flights so bad. The last time I went, I was delayed by an hour. So I'm glad that my flight to Anchorage is nonstop.
