By interrupt, I mean one of the following..

1.Take a break from something
2.Cause something to stop
3.Disturb somebody or somebody’s work
4.Obstruct view

Here is exactly what happened. By exactly I mean sort of.

I boarded my flight, and took my coveted First Class seat....4-D, and buckled up without the assistance of a seatbelt extention the young guy next to me.

Please understand, I was only able to fly First Class because I upgraded to First Class using my frequent flyer miles...because I get one mile for every dollar I spend at Walmart and Disneyland. Those miles add up, and my bank account goes down at the same rate? Some coincidence!

By the way, did you notice how much I like saying First Class?

I had a yummy breakfast of pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and a croissant.

This is what it looked like....after I finished.

When I arrived in Dallas, I had a two hour layover before continuing my journey to the local regional airport where I live.

I found me a nice little cubicle-like niche with electrical outlets and free wifi.

I couldn't wait to post and keep my readers reader abreast of my journey.

I plugged this in....

Then I connected this..... and I tried and tried to connect to the internet. Everything indicated that I was in fact connected....but I wasn't. As time dwindled down, I had to give up on my efforts. As I was unplugging stuff that I plugged in, I noticed this.

Yeah, I never connected this. NEVER!
That is my lame explanation for the late update. Seriously!

When my son-in-law brought me home to the compound...

This was on my door. They missed me...yeah, my aqua aerobics pals.....who would have thought?

But my favorite neighbor didn't know I was gone? Seriously!

Welcome home! What a great sign waiting for you at the door! I have never got one of those before! You are so loved! Sleep tight in your own bed...now that is bliss!!!

You lost me at wifi, but I understand first class and the compound. (BTW, when the day ever comes that I ditch dial-up and purchase a laptop, I will be coming down there for my seminar on technology. You can invite some of your male friends if you want, although there are so many we may have to rent out a stadium.)

Anyway, I am so glad you're home, and how wonderful the nice people at the compound welcomed you back that way. What a nice way to arrive home.

You crack me up. I loved reading about your *wacky* neighbor. I would have your side of the porch way before her "cluttered" side.
I remember those lone stars everywhere when we lived in Texas. Those texans are proud and they also love the "Cowboys" (football) a bit too passionately!!!
So funny about your laptop. Way too many plugs!!!!!
Glad you made it home safe and sound!!!!

Yea! Welcome Home! I spend so much money at Walmart, I wish I earned something extra for it.

Haha! You are a mess! I SURE wanted a 1st Class seat when I was cramped three deep coming back from Africa in the middle of the night! I think they make you walk through First Class to get to your seat just to taunt you and make you see what you are missing out on!

Welcome Home!! What a great sign your friends made to welcome you back to the compound:)

Just a little tip on how to "lick" your plate without actually "licking" it. Run your finger over every square inch of that sucker - and in the fruit cup as well. Then, lick your finger. This is a great way to consume an additional 600 calories, and stave off hunger for a couple of hours. My grandma always told me that I shouldn't be wasteful...

That sounds like something that would have happened to me. Nice welcome home!! Now get back in that pool!

Welcome Home at the Compound : )! So lovely! Baloons AND a poster? Those new friends of yours TOTALLY dig you! I am SO impressed about the first class flight. I have always wanted to know someone that went on one, and now I do! The illustrious, wonderful, fantastic Grandma J! Were the grandkids thrilled to see you? The puppy?

Seriously? She didn't know you were gone? You obviously don't play your music loud enough!!

What a grand trip you had!
