Baabette takes off
Oh boy, I am having waaay too much fun! The getting up at 4 in the morning so we could get to the airport on time wasn’t that big a deal for me. (We’re up early every day at the Transcendent Love Pottery and Herb Farm.) And we slipped right through the security checks. Why, Roxie didn’t even have to take her shoes off.
Here’s me waiting at the airport with Kyle.
And then flying . . . oh, I’m so glad I got to fly. If nothing else wonderful ever happens to me again in my life, I can still be glad because I got to fly! The best part was when we, “took off,” and the ground got littler and littler and you could see further and further, and then everything went white. Kyle told me that was because we were inside a cloud. I’ve been inside a cloud! And then, then, we were ABOVE the clouds and I was so excited I just bleat!
The nice airplane people gave me crackers and water, and before I was nearly done having a good time, we started to “descend.” Landing is almost as much fun as taking off. The ground gets bigger and bigger and then –Thump – you’re there.
The cruise line people picked us up at the airport and took us to the Long Beach pier. We had time to kill so we walked around and looked at things. Here’s me with Queen Mary. Heehee.
When we got on the ship, Roxie had one, just one cocktail with a pink umbrella. I got to keep the umbrella. I think I look quite fetching with it. Roxie wants me to tell you that she got in eight thousand steps and except for the cocktail and the chocolate on her pillow, she has been very virtuous. However, there is no weighing machine on the ship, so we are going to have to cross our fingers and hope.
