Uneventful flying through gorgeous weather made the trip a breeze for me -- so no complaints aside from the dubious quality of the aircraft out of Providence. Traveling from Providence's T. F. Green airport to connect to my Grand Rapids in Newark -- I won't do that again. We parked at Terminal C, very new and spiffy, but then I had to hike from underground to Terminal A via bus (shades of Heathrow this past spring) and found my flight had been delayed.
So, I spent a fair amount of time sitting around old, worn Terminal A amidst a jam-packed selection of folks traveling all over creation.

I arrived an hour or so late, picked up my rental car and headed straight out to our friend Stan's home for dinner -- he willingly agreed to host Susie's birthday dinner. Susie and her mom were already there sipping wine and eating shrimp. But I caught up in no time.
