I Really Should Be Packing…

Taken with my iPhone

On board for the wedding, my new dress.

Yes, I’m the Great Procrastinator.

Took a day off before our trip to spend it getting ready to go. If only Delta would beam us to Los Angeles! We could avoid that nasty airport altogether.

It used to be your mother would say: make sure to wear clean underwear in case you’re in an accident. Now, it’s: make sure to wear clean underwear in case you get frisked by an overzealous TSA employee.

If only we were embarking on a road trip, like the one we made in 2009, but in reverse. Or re-routing our our very first coast-to-coast drive in 1996 from N.Y. to L.A. to take in the sights we missed. For instance:

Bitch and moan, bitch and moan.

Truth be told, I always get a bit anxious the day before a long flight. Crammed inside that tight space with all those people for so many hours. Horrible snacks. Bad movies. The passengers who refuse to close their windows so we can see the bad movies.

I know, I know. When we finally we arrive, get in our rental car and patch out of the LAX environs…it will be fun.

If there’s one site I hope to revisit during our limited free time this weekend, it’s Santa Monica Beach. If only for the chance to pay homage to our soldiers overseas:

Each year, Santa Monica Beach erects this very moving tribute on Memorial Day, lest we not forget our men and women engaged in battle so far away.

Attention, Powers-That-Be who declare wars but do not (nor any of their kin) fight in them: Bring our soldiers home!
