This evening I leave by way of Denver Airport to the Durango Airport where I learned to fly a Cessna 152 and a Cessna 172. I’ll be met by my good friend, and traveling companion, Marilyn. She lives on top of a mountain in Vallecito and the same area where I lived for several years. It is northeast of Durango and about 12 miles from the town of Bayfield.
Saying good bye today to my wonderful, beautiful niece, Lori, will be the last time I see her for who knows how long? I hope to see her visit her California relatives at some point.
I am so proud of the adults they have all become: niece Lori: grand niece Krisy; grand nephew-in-law, Theron; nephew, John; niece-in-law, Shawna; grand niece, Brittany and grand nephew J.D. And then there’s that cutie pie, great nephew, Jack. All of them made me feel welcome and I feel blessed to have been treated so well.
Off to the airport tonight.
