Hello everybody....I flew out of Alaska late Wed. evening and arrived in Chicago at 9am Thursday...only to find the airport in a very tight security lock-down. It was quite scary, but fascinating to be so close to it all.
I did have toothpaste and hand lotion in my large carry-on purse but, by the time I hit Chicago they were banning any substance such as that except in the luggage that was checked. I heard many people talk of throwing that stuff out...rather than trying to pack it.
I had a 3 hour wait until my connecting flight to Albany, NY. Listening to the chatter and watching the increased precautions and hearing them over the loud speakers...really made me aware of how the rest of the world lives daily. It is certaily a wake-up call.
The rest of my trip will be by car and I should be back home in North Carolina by the
I've enjoyed checking the BLOGS whenever I got the chance...WE'RE EVERYWHERE !!
PS: The picture is an old postcard of Bangall...a little town next to where my daughter and son-in-law have their antique shop. The shop is called "Bowen Barn" and is on Rt 82 in Stanfordville, NY...if you ever get to that area.
