"Leaving On A Jet Plane"

 I'm going to do it...

                 And, I feel a bit apprehensive about it....

I haven't traveled by public transportation since before Covid started but I am going to do it. "I'm leaving on a jet plane" Friday, 

headed to New York to spend Thanksgiving with my youngest daughter and her family.

It's been just over two years since I was there which means that I have not seen my grandson, Griffin, (Susan's oldest) nor his brother, Owen. Susan and the youngest son, 13 year old Tighe, did come down to see us once. 

   Susan asked me what I wanted to do while there. 

Well, it's like this.... I am so 'INTO' good food right now. Just savoring each and every bite when I find something that is outstandingly delicious. And, believe you, me, New York has some great food!

So, I want to go to a restaurant in Greenwich, Ct. that I haven't been to yet. 
And, of course, I have to go to La Pain, a French place there in Rye. They have the most yummy breakfasts!!

Grandson Griffin and his sweet Kelsey live in the City and I haven't seen their apartment so I want to do that. And, probably try out an eating place near where they live. That will be soooooo fun. Maybe there will be some Christmas decorations up already in the City. 

We will be dragging out the Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving is over and maybe we will make some crafty something. I will be sure to make lots of pictures. 

I have been so limited with the picture taking because I have 'shot' everything within my sight range more than once and I just need something new to get in my viewfinder! 

I won't have my laptop with me. So, it will probably be when I get back home (and I don't know yet when that will be). Susan bought a one-way ticket. hehe. But, I promise you plenty of pictures when and how I can use them. 

And, keep your fingers crossed that there are no disgruntled passengers that are mad about wearing masks on that plane! Maybe if they don't want to wear a mask, they should take the train or rent a car. But, my flight is only 1 hour and 20 minutes so here's hoping it's an easy one. 



  1. Latane- I hope you have a wonderful, wonderful time going to NYC. And OH YES--the food!!!! Savor every moment and every bite. xo Diana

  2. Going on a plane does sound like a big step forward these days. Enjoy your visit. I love the buzz of NYC. Look forward to the photos

  3. Sounds like a wonderful trip once you get off the plane. Wishing you a fun and food filled time.

  4. Safe travels. Keep the mask on and wash your hands.

  5. Oh that sounds like a great trip and wonderful time together with family. I am jealous:) Enjoy and I look forward to lots of pictures and stories when you return. HUGS and safe travels!

  6. An airplane is one of the safer places to be these days in all honesty. I have taken 3 nonstop flights in the last year. I simply walk around people in the airports not wearing their masks-I mean.....those who are eating and drinking something so cannot possibly wear it. Love that excuse!

    Safe travels and Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  7. Hope you have a wonderful time! I have just recently discovered your blog and you are such an inspiration! I will look every day for continuing posts! I don't have a blog, just love to read them. Be safe!

  8. I've flown three times since March 2020 and everyone was well behaved. Wishing the same for you. The decorations are mostly up in New York City and we have lots of visitors. So would enjoy meeting you. Have a wonderful time.

    1. Buttercup, I wish we could meet. That would be fun but I have no idea where I will be when... Perhaps another time. Hugs, dear friend.

  9. i hope you do well, have an uneventful flight and arrive safely!! that your thanksgiving is amazing, how wonderful that you will be with family!!

    take pictures of the turkey!!

  10. You will do just fine. I hope your trip is wonderful. I know you will enjoy time with your family!!!

  11. I hope you have a wonderful visit, and I know you will have awesome food!

  12. In September we flew into Philadelphia and then we drove to New York. We love that city. Have a wonderful time on our trip and enjoy your family!

  13. Oh that is going to be a wonderful trip Latane. I will enjoy reading all about it when you have the time to post again after your return. Enjoy your family, enjoy the food and A Very Happy Thanksgiving to you all :) Happy Travels!

  14. Enjoy your time with your family. Happy Thanksgiving to you. Hugs, Edna B.
