Well, we heard from Mom. She is safe an' sound in Seattle visitin' with our cousins, Ben Fuzz an' Lucy Fur. She says that her flight was fine once it finally got off of the ground.
She had a 2:30 PM flight yesterday, but there was trouble with the plane's "anti-lock breaking system" so they were grounded 'til 5:15 PM while mechanics fixed stuff. Considering the fact that Mom was dropped off at the airport at 12:10 PM and she was buzzed through security (since she flew first class), she cooled her heels for HOURS while waiting to take off.
She told us that she was seated next to a really odd and creepy man from Anchorage for the flight and he was very sloppy ... He also took over nearly all of the space (Mom was grateful for an aisle seat).
Tonight is a trip to Ellensburg to pick up Uncle Jer's "new" truck. His horrible Ford Escort wagon died a couple of days ago an' he's buyin' our cousin's truck 'cuz our cousin's movin' to Kansas this weekend.
Thursday, Mom will drive her rental car to eastern Washington to visit our Aunt Montie an' she'll be staying at a casino overnight. Then, she'll drive down to the Tri-Cities to pick up another auntie an' bring her, the woofies, an' luggage back to Seattle to catch their non-stop to Kansas. Whewww...
Mom is enjoying herself already, but she says that she misses us (although Ben an' Lucy are trying furry hard to make Mom feel welcome).
That's our update on Mom's vacation so far ... Stay tuned!
