Random thoughts

It was very nice to sleep in my own bed last night. Hell, it was just plain nice to sleep in a bed.
The floor of McCarran airport curled up with my arms through my luggage straps with shoes & a t-shirt for a pillow and a skirt for a blanket is really not the most comfortable way to sleep! LOL.
Since there were NO NWA employees at the airport overnight, I couldn't check my bag until about 7 am. On a funny note, wandering the ticketing counter area in the wee hours of the morning led to my final JoCo encounter of the weekend. I accused him of stalking me. He asked what happened to my 1 am flight. Then he expressed a lot of sympathy over my bad night. He's such a nice guy. I ♥ JoCo.

There was a new roof on my house when I got home. Looks pretty spiffy. Not sure how long until we get the new siding...

According to Hellbob, there are skunks in our neighborhood! When he was sitting out on the front step having a drink & a cigar one of the nights I was gone, a skunk came wandering across the yard! Skunks in Crystal? Who'da thunk?

Right now there is a super cool spider web across our back door step. It is built from the railing across the step to the garbage can. It's one of those cool round ones that looks like spider web drawings look. I'm going to tell Hellbob to take the front door out tomorrow so I can try to get a good picture of it before I have to destroy it when I drag the garbage can to the curb tomorrow. Cool web, but a silly place to build it! I took a picture w/my point & shoot and you can kind of see it. But it's not a great pic since it's nighttime.

The spider is not really as large as this picture makes him look:

I thought I had more to say, but again I am too tired to think of it.

Goodnight everyone!

JoCo was still in the airport late? Poor sap. I'm ok with pictures of spiders. Not so happy with the reality of spiders.

No, he was actually there around 6:00 am for his 8:00ish flight.
Spiders don't bother me at all as long as they don't touch me!

Yes! Yes he is that big! OMG. *is terrified of spiders* I have a tree spider that's about an inch and a half long that consistently builds his web from one low hanging tree to the driveway. It's a concentric web, like that one, only built in a VEE shape. and he hangs out in the middle of it, about face level. I've walked into the web. Twice. And screamed both times.

Why? Because Spiders are minions of satan. Seriously. Look at one up close. They are tiny soldiers of evil who take Satan's commands. *swallows* yes.

I don't much care for spiders, but I *HATE* the feel of spiderwebs. If I walked into a faceheight web I'd scream too. Loudly.

LOL! No, really, he's not all that big. Of course, his web is toast as soon as I go outside because one side is attached to the garbage can that has to go down to the curb this morning...

Wow! That's an awesome web! I have a big spider on my balcony that weaves a nice web every night, I try not to disturb him when I go out there. XD

in the introduction section to my book there's a photo of philforrest sleeping against a wall in-line at a baggage check with my shoes in the foreground. we spent so much over-night time and hours between flights in airports it's horrifying. you put your arms through the strap of your camera bag, put a shirt on top of it, and maybe your shoes under that, and try and get as much sleep as you can... but you always remember that "someday, i'll be home, and i'll be looking back at this, and it will be the past."

This was my first time ever missing a flight and also my first time "sleeping" in an airport. It wasn't too bad and when my wonderful husband picked me up the next afternoon he had brought ice cream for me to snack on in the car.
It wasn't by any means a fun adventure, but it wasn't horrible.
