Hello from rural eastern North Carolina.  I flew down this morning to check on my mother.  She’s fine, but this is likely to be the last opportunity I have for a quick visit until after the summer.  Hard to believe, but in 5 weeks, MrsMJonTravel and I head to Rome, and our 12 day cruise of the Mediterranean aboard Celebrity Equinox.  And 2 weeks after we return from that, we head right back to Scotland for a family wedding.  Two trans-atlantic crossings in one summer.  I haven’t done that in a while!

I’m heading back home tomorrow afternoon.  Then Monday, I’m off to Atlanta for the week.  My Delta Medallion upgrade has already cleared!  I’ll be bunking at the Embassy Suites this week instead of my usual haunt at the W Midtown.  Hilton has shown me a lot of promo love this year, and I need a Hilton family stay this week.  Gotta do what ya’ gotta do!  🙂
