So here we are back home again in Birch Bay Village after three weeks in Alabama. Our sleep in the BHM Holiday Inn was very poor, no fault of theirs. It's just that planning to catch a 6:00 a.m. flight makes us a little jumpy.
We flew up to ORD (Chicago) on a regional jet, then transferred to a 757 for a First Class flight to Seattle.
David picked us up with three little girls who seemed happy to see us. After a pleasant 24 hours or so, we hit the road this afternoon, drove through ever-lowering temperatures until it hit 29 degrees in Blaine, where we picked up our mail before stopping at the market to buy some staples before returning to home sweet home.
