Welcome spring and prosperity...


“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”
~Anne Bradstreet

We took off two hours late last weekend because of a computer glitch, but I have to admit that it was one of the smoothest flights I’ve ever been on.  Gliding through the air so smoothly actually kind of makes one forget what is really happening… 
the tearing through the air at 400+mph.
We got to Phoenix unscathed.

At the hotel, we were informed that they booked the wrong room for us and,
as it was 11:30 p.m. their time because of our late flight,
they wouldn’t have the right room for us until the following day.
 We made due.

The next day, when we were supposed to be relaxing around the pool, we were waiting for our new room assignment that took them until after 1:00 p.m. to get…then when we got to the room, it was a mess with sheets on the floor and junk in the sitting room.  So off to the restaurant we went and had a rum runner and a pretty decent lunch.
By the time we were done,
we were in business in our room and in general.

All in all, it was a good time and after the rocky start, we enjoyed three baseball games and a tour around the Apache Trail Loop just east of Phoenix.  And a bonus is that upon arriving back home, most of the two foot piles of snow have melted into trace amounts.
Real spring is on its way in the northeast.

Nice job on the mosaic! Glad your trip turned out okay - even if it stunk up front! :)

Thanks! The mosaic is actually a bunch of mirrors in the airport that are an art installation. I could have stood there all day messing around with my camera and that. Good to be back!
