Leaving On A Jet Plane – April 27, 2011
**Quick Note – I was hoping to post this yesterday, Wednesday. But after many flight delays we didn’t arrive at the motel in GA until 2am. To say the least, we just went to bed. So here’s a post about our plane ride!
My human-owners parents tell me there’s an old song by Peter, Paul and Mary called “Leaving on a Jet Plane”. They said it’s very appropriate for today as we are indeed leaving on a jet plane! We are “winging” our way toward Atlanta, GA and then driving to Fort Benning, which is in Columbus, GA for PVT Ben’s graduation! I can hardly wait!
As you can see my human-owners Mom did not “pack” me into my usual Army backpack travel bag. Instead she decided to carry me onto the plane so I can look around and even look out the window! What an incredible view! I still might sneak up to the pilots cabin and ask if I can fly the plane. You know as a General I did fly planes at one time. But, I’ll have to tell you more about that later.
Right now I’m taking in all the views as we make our way to Fort Benning for graduation!
