Anyhow, as I was driving home from work Wednesday night I was trying to think of songs about flying other than "Leaving on a Jet Plane" by Peter, Paul, & Mary which just wasn't doing it for me! Even the John Denver version wasn't appealing but luckily there are a decent number of songs out there about airplanes and flying and it ended up being easy to find five. It's probably a pretty odd mix when you stop and look at it but that's what so fun about this meme - it can be a mixed-up mess or all one genre or group or singer or whatever you'd like! Out of these five I'd have to say that Foo Fighters "Learn to Fly" stands out as my favorite simply because it took me forever to master it on Guitar Hero and then Michael Buble comes in a close second because he's Michael Buble and it's just such a great song!
Anyhow, as the song goes, it's time for me to fly so I'm off to Florida via a Southwest Airlines flight out of Hartford to see my baby graduate (woohoo!) and then Jamie and I will be hitting the highways and byways of Florida to meet up with an assortment of blogging friends - Barb in Valdosta just north of the Florida border whose Mom has made lasagna!; Sandy in Saint Augustine who is fortunately going to be there on the same day we are!; Charlie & Bee in West Palm Beach where I'm going to have loads of hugs and some lasagna to deliver provided the lasagna doesn't get sidetracked on its way from Georgia!; and finally Lyn who is a lovely lady and an avid bicyclist down in Fort Lauderdale where we'll be flying out of to return to Connecticut on Tuesday.
Amanda and Tesla are going to hold the fort down here at home with the aid of friends Jason & Amy if need be and I'm sure they'll do just fine in my absence. I promise to take lots of pictures (you wouldn't think otherwise, would you?) but posting may be sketchy if at all as I'm only taking the NetBook with me "just in case" and anything else will be done via iPhone.
Ya'll (see? I'm practicing for being down South!) try to behave yourselves while I'm gone but if you can't do that, at least have fun!
