Today was a long and bumpy road in the skies. The first flight took us around our elbow to get to the thumb called Newark. The second leg was late leaving and we ended up at the brother's house four hours later than expected. But arrive we did. Thankfully. On the few occasions when I fly, I first of all like to work on a difficult crossword puzzle to help my brain zoom in and focus. Then I like to have a good book to read. One I brought today was by PJ O'Rourke, a new-to-me author and quite hilarious. He writes with a cynicism and critical eye - things I have tried to squelch in myself - but I realize it can be bitingly funny. Now I am going to settle in to the inviting bed for a good night's sleep.
