So....I left my house in Howell, Mi at 6am via the parents chaufeer service and made way to Detroit Metro with a cup of coffee and bran muffin...bran you ask....one can never be too prepared! So after a wheezing laughing fit started by my father in regards to a joke and a buzz from the blessed dunkin donuts I arrived for check in um...about 2.5 hours early...so why not wander....why not STARE....I saw some amazing sites.....namely the man that I think was related to Rick James.....or was it the woman in the white pants that was heading to somewhere warm and thought it a good idea to go camando....yup...only if the pants are lined sweetie! So after a much needed walk and water, I ran into Vicki who is on the DDA with me (Downtown Development Authority - city stuff) and we chat until boarding.....well after boarding with about 25 kids from newborn to 3 yo screaming and kicking we sat on the plane for about 1 hour taxiing waiting for take off......finally......I think somewhere over the Dakotas I woke myself drooling.....nice little nappy! The rest of the flight was uneventful and when I finally opened my window saw the most beautiful CLOUDS! Ok, there were mountains too...I was in awe.. We landed and arranged for our car.....I mean it is standard to be driving a 2007 Dodge Charger..oh it is red..that's right....grrr....After the cruise to Seattle was over, Vicki and I went to Ivar's and had my first Seattle fish.....oh man was it good.....and we were even entertained by the Seattle Firehouse next door refurbishing their engines...grrr...something about those firemen * grin * I soon dropped Vicki at the Bainbridge Island Ferry to visit her brother and I headed to Kent where a dear friend of mine, Shanna is in practice....so here I am with non-fat carmel macchiato at arms reach filling you in. I guess we are off to an "after-hours" get together at a coffee shop...I dunno if I need any more coffee...but wine....now that is a different story! See you Friday!
