California Dreamin on my way to the airport

Iím very honored that the little smiley I carved on my windshield before leaving made it to CNN.

All the leaves are brown All the leaves are brown)
And the sky is gray.
(And the sky is gray).
Iíve been for a walk
(Iíve been for a walk)
On a winterís day.
(On a winterís day).
and it was...

Flight Out

The flight is from BWI airport to Dallas, Texas, no time for Texas though, long-delay getting de-iced in Baltimore which almost makes me miss my connection to San Diego. The flight attendant asks me "are you fit?" Me: no but I'll pretend! She says if you go fast, really fast you might make it in time. My other plane is boarding and I've got flying sidewalks to fly over and another terminal to go completely across 39 to 21, 14? I can't remember but I know I took off like Grant took Richmond. I finally reach the gate, the lobby is empty and a lady at the counter says "hurry!" (as if I just had a walk in the park). Good God by the time I plop down in my seat I'm panting and gasping without a voice to even murmur, "WaterÖ for the love of God can someone give me water?" This is said to myself of course. Once the heart settles and the sweat is dry I get myself happy ... heck I'm going to California!
