If you could go anywhere to celebrate your retirement, where would you go?

After 29+ years with the United States Postal Service, Marvin chose Washington, DC.  With so much to see and do, I contacted our Congressman to schedule some tours, and asked my Facebook friends for ideas. To say there is a ton of stuff to do in DC, is well, an understatement.  There is an overwhelming amount of things to do.  I knew I would have to make a list and prioritize what we wanted to see etc.  It was still a long list including: 

DSC08776

As you can see it’s a combination typed/handwritten/shorthand list.  And it’s longer than it looks because there are things not listed that I wanted to see as well.  I knew we wouldn’t be able to see all of the list but we were going to try!

Mom and Dad drove us to Dallas Love Field (DAL) and they have made some great improvements over the last several years.  There was a long line to go through security but it was moving fast.  After we were through security, we looked for somewhere to get a bite to eat. 

1 breakfast

Can’t go wrong with Whataburger, right? 

It was a very quick flight to Austin Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and we were ready to get going.

3 here we go

Our in-flight snack consisted of a complimentary beverage and some peanuts. 

4 snack on the flight to austin

Yes – we were flying on Southwest Airlines!!  And the peanuts were yummy!

We landed in Austin and we had some time to kill before our next flight.  We found a little spot to get some lunch.

5 layover in austin

6 lunchtime

We boarded our next flight which I knew was going to be a five hour trip so I made sure to use the restroom before boarding.  As I settled into my seat, I realized something. 

I had to go to the bathroom.

Again.

On a plane.

For real.

Those bathrooms are so tiny!!  And then, you have to stand so close when you flush…ugh!!  Those that know me well know I have an issue with public restrooms. ::don’t judge::  And compound that with the fact that it is a small, cramped airline restroom and it just makes it worse.  But with Marvin’s encouragement, I went anyway.  I survived and my bladder thanked me.

Something I like to do when I fly is to critique the safety brochure.  Take a look at this pic.

9 pics in the safety brochure

First of all, does anyone still own a transistor radio?  Second of all, who brings a remote control car on a plane?  Flight attendant friends, does this even happen? 

Okay, let’s play a little guessing game.  If we were to be judging this plane evacuation, who would win?

10 pics in the safety brochure

My vote is for the lady on the right.  Not only is she holding a baby, but she is also pointing her toes.  That earns her extra points for form. 

Yes, this is what I do on plane rides to different places.  Plus, I chat with random people.  It’s what I do. 

What do you do to pass the time when you are flying?

Where is your next adventure taking you?
