I’m getting ready to leave extremely dark and early in the morning for our vendor in Birmingham. I need to get to the airport around 5:30 a.m., and it’s about a 30 minute drive…so we won’t try to fit in our traditional breakfast at IHOP. I’m going to try and carry on one small bag and my EDJ laptop. I’ve studied all the new restrictions, so hopefully I didn’t pack anything illegal. The only question, really, is whether the plane I’m catching to Memphis will be big enough to allow carry on baggage. (I’ve been on a few of those crop dusters that make you check everything planeside.)
I’m not taking my personal laptop this time, so I don’t know how much I’ll be able to check in. I’m hoping the hotel has free wi-fi so I can at least check my e-mail regularly. With agent e-queries in progress, I’ll be gnawing my fingers to the knuckle if I can’t check in and see if any news is unfolding in my inbox!
The hardest part of this whole trip…is picking my plane books. I’m pretty sure it’ll be Omega Games by S.L. Viehl on the way down…and Twilight Fall on the way home. I’ve been saving them for a special occasion.
