Back in Seattle after a long and treacherous flight into windy Seattle. More than a few times, all of us on the plane contemplated death in a fiery crash as the plane pitched in heavy winds. A stewardess went flying at one point, and one passenger who had been in the bathroom sprinted down the aisle back to her seat with a look of terror on her face. I can't recall exactly, but I think she had her pants on backwards.
I must confess to having been as Internet and cell-phone free as I've been in years for the past two weeks. I'm sure it will take me through the weekend to catch up on everything. I look forward to it.
Happy new year to all!
