John finally made it home and Cindy called
John and Vicki ( my wife with her face still swollen from having dental work done )
My son John finally made it home yesterday. He was stuck in Atlanta for several hours while they ( Delta Airline ) was waiting for equipment . He later found out that the equipment that they were waiting for was the Plane, Crew, and pilot. Apparently they were all in different states. When the plane was finally ready to fly John said that the pilot looked EXACTLY like John Travolta. LOL. I told John that maybe it really was John Travolta. Travolta is a certified pilot and owns five airplanes, including an ex-Australian Boeing 707-138 airliner. John thought that was a scary thought. :)
John brought his Dress Blues home for us to see. He has a few more ribbons on it now than when we last saw him. He will also put his E-3 on it when he gets back to Mayport. He looked really good so I took him to see some of our friends here in Kansas. Kinda like our Kansas Parents and Grandparents, we have several that we adopted :). My parents live in Florida and Vicki's Mother passed away several years ago so Doris, Joan and Mable are all really like family to us.
Mable made him some Chicken noodles and Chocolate Cake and is going to have him over for butterscotch pie later in the week. Two of Johns friends also stopped by to see him yesterday evening. He is going to visit some more people later in the week including our neighbor ( adopted Mom ) Doris so we can get some more pictures.
My daughter Cindy called from her base in San Diego just as we got home last night to say hello. Cindy sounded great as usual. I am so happy for her. I wish I could see some pictures of her. Cindy, that is not a hint, I give you enough of those. LOL I just miss you. I didn't get to talk to her very long when I had to go back out and then when I got home I fell asleep so I will try calling her back later today.
