Fast Flight

My wife loves to travel. When we were first married she thought she would fill her traveling yen as I was pursuing a career in the Christian music industry ... but alas, that wasn't to be. Then I became an official for our local postal worker's union and we did, indeed, get to travel as I would go to various conventions around the country. Then I gave that up to take a part-time job on staff at our church, and again we would travel - though not as extensively - to seminars and workshops and conferences. Then I got involved doing special projects within the Postal Service and was off to various parts of the U.S. but did most of that traveling solo, but every now and again she would get to come with me. Now most of our traveling is local, though we do make an effort to go someplace new and relatively exciting every few years.

If you enjoy travel, you might enjoy this article from the folks at Real Simple magazine. The author has been to places around the globe I will almost certainly never see, but several good points are raised. It's worth a read for the next time you're packing a suitcase for a new destination.

Thanks and a tip o'the Mark's Musings cap to Mark Hurst over at Good Experience.


Unaware that there was a one-hour time difference between Indianapolis and Chicago, Bob inquired at the Indy airport about a flight to Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

"The next plane leaves at 1:00 p.m. and arrives in Chicago at 1:01 p.m."

"Would you repeat that, please?" Bob inquired.

The ticket agent did and then asked, "Would you like a reservation for that flight?"

"No," Bob replied, "but I think I'll stick around and watch it take off!"

WONDER for YOUR WEEK: Why do we say we're getting on a plane? Aren't we actually getting *in* a plane?
