My mom has not been on a plane in damn near 12 years. When she met me here after the first leg of her trip, so that we could fly to Spokane together on our way to Idaho, she came up to me in the airport and went, "Oh my GOD! Do you KNOW they make you take your SHOES OFF at the airport???!!!!"
Sigh. She's so genuine and sweet and nice - it's always shocking to me how out of touch her and my dad are with what's going on in the world - they're just wrapped up in their own thing down there in Retirement-Ville.
Anyway, lots of fun family reunion stories, AFTER I get unpacked and put away and all that nonsense.
