I've been soooooo very busy this year that I have been unable to take much of my allotted vacation time. Hence, I am now on "mandatory vacation"! I must use up most of my 2008 vacation time in the second half of December and the first half of January. During this time interval, I will try to share my Christmas cheer in the form of photos which I will post from time to time. I plan on making NO TRIPS during the Christmas Holiday and will instead remain at home-sweet-home taking care of chores that I've put off doing the rest of this year. And as one wise friend once said to me: "Christmas is the time of year when people who normally don't travel that much, travel". And he's correct! That's why I prefer to stay away from crowded airports, avoid the flight delays, don't get stuck in traffic snarls, etc and simply stay home. Besides, I'm sure there will be plenty of travel next year!
So before I close, here are a few pictures of my return trip home:
Pay attention to the escalator sign!! Press the handle down!! Releasing the handle LOCKS the cart in place and as the escalator goes UP the cart rolls DOWN .... and can hit the passenger standing behind the cart. I am still nursing the leg wound caused by the cart banging into my shin! Ouch!
