I'M BACK HOME!
You plan, and plan, and hope that all the puzzle pieces fit like they are supposed to... Well, they did!!
Sometimes the fellow that is supposed to load your car can't make it that day.
Sometimes you might even oversleep and just can't get ready on time. Heaven forbid!
Sometimes the person that is supposed to pick you up and take you to the airport gets delayed or gets his signals mixed.
Sometimes the flight is canceled.
Well, this time everything on my trip home from Florida worked like clockwork.
A coupe of things really impressed me.
For example, when I got to Fort Lauderdale airport there was a long line of people, at the Jet Blue terminal, waiting to check their luggage. Before I knew it a staff member approached me. I told him that I had requested a wheelchair and like magic there it was! He got me through security one, two three.
That way I don't have a long walk which I would find difficult. My heavy laptop is placed on my lap and before I know it I'm on the plane heading home.
This was the first time that there was a cat on my flight. The poor thing was so frightened it meowed for the longest time, finally it fell asleep or calmed down and I didn't hear another meow for the rest of the flight.
Once I got home I checked my messages and surprise, surprise, the company that I ship my car with called and arranged to deliver my car the very next day!
Even though I had gotten up very early that morning I was on a high, not tired one bit. My friend took me out to dinner and then I did some food shopping. Still on a high!!
When the car was delivered I had my maintenance man unload the car for me. Every season when I come back from Florida he wants to know if I met "Mr. Wonderful." Every year I tell him "no."
This year he said, "they should be running after you."
I said, "they can't run!"
After all the hard work I did, packing up, cleaning up, making all the arrangements to get back home, it's no wonder that I am very happy to be home again!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RONNI
Today is the day we celebrate and honor Ronni Bennett on her special birthday.
Yes, every birthday is special!!
She's sweet, spicy, saucy, wholesome and lip smacking delicious. When you read her blog you never know what tasty and eye opening morsel you'll be reading. It could be about politics, elder law, poetry, music, hair and even funny videos involving cats!!
What do you get for an elder with so many tasty attributes?
I would suggest a trip to Trader Joe's, show them what you've got, and get some of their tasty treats.

Is that your "little red car" I see in the parking lot?
Wishing you a very happy birthday and a fun filled year!!
