The Odd Terrain of America, viewed as if by God or There’s something on the wing or UFO/Too Much Alcohol :)

I’m still creating the “awards” for the Welles’ Podcast winners ( Note to self, it takes a LOOOOONG time to edit the highlights of 11 different shows onto a CD. I’ve got eight shows done, three to go) , and still working on the 2nd and Final portion of the WORLD FAMOUS, (would you believe “Block Famous”?) Welles Awards. So in the interim, here’s some ramblings and pics from my cross country flight:

Well I was taking that long flight from the West to the East, and had one of the worst flights taking the carrier… US Airlines.

They were offering great round trip prices, little did I know these prices came at the expense of little things like free baggage handling and making your connections on time.

So when you added up the additional costs (due to US Airlines now charging for your baggage check), the US Airlines prices… not a deal. When you also add the fact that you also miss connections the US Airways prices are really not a deal. And because they cut out flights, if you miss a connection, you’re pretty much stranded until the next day.

Which is what happened to yours truly. So then you (you, as in me) have to come out of pocket to rent a hotel for the night… do you get the picture? Needless to say, not a happy camper. That said, thankfully US Airways still has good people working for them, in what amounts to a cost cutting atmosphere. So the Attendent, to perhaps appease my rising eyebrow (sign of my ire), she gave me a free round-trip ticket good for a year.

It was a bribe, but it worked. I was suitably appeased. Not happy… but appeased.

That said, I haven’t used the ticket yet, but will be using it shortly.

Anyhow when finally, on a flight heading to my final destination, beyond bugging the people I sit next to (the band mates for Darius Rucker, formerly known as Hootie of “Hootie And The Blow Fish”. The guys were heading to Tennessee to play a gig) I amuse myself by taking pics of the ground beneath.

So amuse yourself by laughing at my horrific photography, as I continue to wrap up the Welles Awards! 🙂 . Take a look:

The Dragon… rampant! (If you’re the first person to tell me what movie that’s from you’ll win a copy of the movie) I quite like the image the river makes, very Chinese New Year like.

There's something on the wing!

There's something on the wing!

You fools! Don’t look at the clouds! There’s something on the wing!!!

Okay, made it across the country… home… by the grace of God.

Okay that’s enough rambling! I’ve got work to do.
