Day One

So far so good! One of the ladies passed out luggage tags. Everyone's said "I love NY" except for mine. I drew the tag that said, "I'm Lost". We decided that the lost tag should be passed around for the one who does the did the dumbest thing each day. There were a couple of dumb things today, but Mom would probably win for putting her pantyhose on while still wearing her pajama bottoms.

We flew from OK City to Baltimore. The landing at Baltimore was about as bad as I have ever experienced. I thought I might puke, and I don't EVER puke. I got that clammy feeling and broke out in a sweat. I was glad to get on solid ground, find a diet Pepsi and relax. Being the Border Collie (herding old ladies) is tougher than you would think, but so far I am okay. One of the ladies is a germaphobia. She said she would not eat a hot dog from a street vendor because they probably boil the dogs in the same water every day. I said it would be okay as long as they boiled the water. She was worried that they might have dropped them on the sidewalk. I didn't point out that it was still cooked. Oh well, I am a firm believer in the three second rule. If it does not stay on the ground more than three seconds it will be fine.

Tomorrow we take the train in to NY City. I will write again if I can from the Wolcott in NY City!

Wow, sounds like a great start! Every trip has its bumps. I lived in "Balmer" for 4 years. I love that city. Have fun, but be safe!

I remember riding herd on a bunch of women. I thought I was going to pull my hair out! Of course, we were also under time constraints. I'd make a blog post about it but some of the ladies involved occasionally stop by and read. It was quite the tale, that.

Why yes, we did buy some knock-off purses. More on that later...
