Hey! I'm back from 10 wonderful days in Jamaica. We laid on the beach, got a tan, ate, drank, and had a relaxing time. It was very nice.
We had some trouble getting there. We left here at 12:01 a.m. on Delta Air Lines. We flew to Atlanta, GA. We had a 2 hour layover so we left there at 8:55 a.m. About half way to Jamaica we turned back because the landing gear was not working correctly. They told us, It's better to be where the plane can be fixed, and we can get medical care, if it has a BAD landing. So there we are in the Atlanta, GA airport ALL DAY. We finally left there at 5:30 p.m.
Then it's a 2 hour drive to the resort. We made it in time for dinner. From there it was just wonderful.
On the way home we got to play with Delta Air Lines again. Coming back into the USA is a joke. They make it so hard for citizen to come back into the country. You go through imigration, then to baggage claim, then to customes. The ticket said Gate A18. Delta changed it to A16 which was no big deal. Except I have been up since 3:00 a.m. with nothing to eat. Then THEY change it to B16 which is in another part of the terminal. Which we had already gone through to get to A16. The plane was supposed to leave at 1:55 p.m. It was 30 minutes late getting off the ground. We finally made it home at 5:00 p.m.
It's always good to be home.
While on vacation I read 6 books, crocheted 3 bookmarks, and 7 Barbie dresses.
I was sitting there on the beach crocheting and a lady passed and said, "That's something you don't see everyday." Meaning me crocheting.
Another couple thought I looked funny trying Barbie's dress on her. They said something about me playing with my Barbie doll. Hey! People I have 19 grandchildren with another one on the way, and 14 of them are girls. So I crochet clothes for their Barbies. So sue me. I enjoy it.
So we are home, well, and happy.
