And We’re Off

Sometimes it’s the government, not the Almighty, who makes decisions for us.  Last night we discussed if I would get a full pat-down or a body scan.  I have a prosthetic hip so I’m not dancing through the door jamb like I used to.  Because of terrorists from afar, we’ve had to change how we fly.  In 1965 the terrorist group that frightened us most was homegrown: the Ku Klux Klan.


I can remember the night four of us drove east across the Mississippi River in our white VW bug.  In the dark I wondered if I’d be alive at the end of the summer to cross back going west and home.  Tonight will be different.  I hope to sleep comfortably on my way south.

Here’s our schedule for day 1 and 2.
