Just completed a 10 hour flight from Prague to Atlanta. Sally is at Panda Express–she’s a picky eater and was hungry for “American” food. Go figure. I guess she made a better choice than I did, though–I’m in a smoking room, writing this blog. She came in, coughed pointedly, and left again.
We’ll get as far as Seattle tonight, arriving around midnight. The plan is to–excuse the term–crash in a hotel room near the airport. In the morning, Sally will go on to Portland, while I head for Spokane. I will sure be glad to see all my critters and, oh, yeah, the people, too. With another week of exercise under her belt, Sadie-beagle must be looking downright svelt!
I LOVED Prague–it is beautiful, like a fairy-tale city, with all kinds of spires and minerets. I didn’t paint or draw while there, but I sure got inspired! The people are so friendly–with the exception of one store clerk who seemed to miss the Communist regime and would make an excellent Russian border guard. The weather alternated between snow flurries and dazzling sunshine lighting up an impossibly blue sky.
As much as I enjoy traveling, though, it’s always good to set my feet on home-ground again.
In only 4 days, TYLER will be in the book stores. Am I excited?
For now, though, I’d better go find my sister.
