Safe and Sound

I hate flying....hate it with a passion.

I am not afraid of flying, I just hate it!  I hate that we pay 3x more every time, and receive 6x less for our money, every single trip.  I hate the little tiny planes that we are forced to ride on to get from Denver to Casper, they make me nauseous.  I hate airports, I especially hate trying to figure out how to drive through an airport. Well the big ones anyway. Could they make Sky Harbor International any more confusing???   At least Casper Airport is tiny. One way in, and one way out.
I do not mind security, I do not hate the people who work at the airports. I feel like they are doing the best they can with what the executives give them to work with, and that isn't much.   I mean, they don't even offer free peanuts any more, and on the bigger plane, they have fixed the seats so they do not recline even the slightest little bit.  It was by far the most uncomfortable airplane ride I have ever been on. Blah blah blah....I could go on for hours.  

Anyway, we made it home safe and sound and that is all that matters, but shame on those folks who make the decisions of what you get for you money when booking a ticket. Spring for some free nuts dammit!

The first thing I did when I got home was run out to the barn. I had Dallas (Mark's son) taking care of my animals for me.  He did a right fine job, with only a few minor mistakes.  I couldn't even be upset about the mistakes because they were all mistakes I make myself on a regular basis.  Everyone was healthy and shiny.   Trax looked at me with a certain indignation as if to say, "How dare you leave without me?"  Actually I think he was upset that he had not been getting his hand fed treats.  He'll get over it.

The dogs were totally wild when we got home. They really missed TC who spoils them rotten.

I sure did miss my nice comfy bed!

This week will be all about getting ready for the next show which is coming up on Saturday.   I haven't had time to get the camera out yet but will get some pics up pretty soon.


  1. I hate flying too, but more because I just hate flying! I am terrified of heights. And claustrophobic. I have only flown a few times and they were all short flights. I would be happy to just drive wherever I need to go!
    And it always feels good to be back home again, that's for sure!

  2. I love getting home too! I dont mind flying, the part I hate is the waiting, for international flights they always want you there 2 hours ahead of time and so you sit around and wait for hour and a half. Seems a waste. Good to hear everyone was happy to see you back as well.

  3. Cindy, thank you for finding our blog, Calamity Acres, and for commenting. I see now I have been missing a very nice blog here! I love horses, even though we don't have any now... but it will be so nice to read about yours!

    1. Thank you for stopping by as well!
