Chute Happens...

deal with it....

I saw today's blog title on a "long and dark, shiny and black" (Springsteen lyrics) truck while I was driving. I was intrigued. The truck was a driving advertisement for Cirrus Design. They sell private jets. Such a clever marketing idea.

As the time grows nearer to my extended trip across the Atlantic, I begin to see things that wouldn't normally get a second Neve glance. I actually thought about how nice it would be to own a plane. Wouldn't owning a jet be a convenient little doo-dad to have at a moments notice?

p.s. Out of curiosity, or delusions of grandeur, I researched the cost of a Cirrus Design jet. Suspiciously, the website isn't set up to hand over the cost of purchasing your very own, private plane. Minor detail. I can only imagine the price tag for one of these little babies might potentially be a bit more than one of my Unique Thrift Store shopping sprees.

Oh, the places I could go with a jet like that! Yum! Just look at that cockpit and all of those shiny gauges!

Wonderful travels to you!

I suppose it's a bit like those restaurants where they don't give the prices in the menu.

If you have to ask...

Kirsten and Craig,
I'm looking in my crystal ball this morning and I see planes, trains and travel to far away lands in our futures.

I'll post when I can. I'll miss you guys....

p.s. I'm hoping to meet up with Isabel while I'm there. She's promising me grappa. :-)

Have a great time, Neve.

Of course, we'll expect a thorough report upon your return!
