pirate ship

All At Sea, Part One

I’m off for the morning train,
I’ll cross the raging main;
I’m off to my love with a boxing glove,
Ten thousand miles away.
-- “The Walloping Window Blind,” Charles E. Carryl

Monday, 6/9

We were all on time at 3:00 p.m. at the church. All the paperwork was in order. Drivers were ready. We moved on out toward Indy and the airport. Check-in was easy. Our only glitch was my learning the night before that Delta had a checked-bag fee for domestic flights, which upped our expenses $150 each way (curse their hides). We waited around just a bit in the airport before leaving for Atlanta.Collapse )
