April 29 – Marsha arrived home (Las Vegas) last night but not without experiencing the “joys of air travel.” The first leg of her flight was delayed in Akron/Canton, OH, by about 30 minutes, putting reaching her Denver connecting flight in jeopardy.

She flew Frontier. This was her pilot.

The site below.

Upon arriving in Denver she only had a few minutes to run the length of the terminal to the gate for her next flight. Upon arriving at the gate, she found this flight too was delayed. Well, at least she didn't miss the flight!

Her pilot for this trip.

Marsha was able to get some great mountain pictures out of the airplane windows. Look at all the snow in the mountains between Denver and Las Vegas.



Just gorgeous.


After finally arriving in Las Vegas, passengers were notified to remain in there seats due to a medical emergency. A passenger had passed out during the flight, and an EMS crew would have to help remove him from the plane before anyone could disembark. No word on how the passenger was medically. Eventually, we were united and made the short drive back to Boulder City and the motorhome at the Elks Lodge.

We had some excitement in the sky over the Elks Lodge this morning. First event was a flyover by six military helicopters. They were heading in the direction of the Hoover Dam. How neat would that be to see them flyover the dam.


The next surprise was skydivers parachuting just to the SE of the campground. This goes on several time a week. There must be a jump club at the nearby general aviation airport.



On Marsha's last day in Ohio, she spent a wonderful afternoon having lunch with her dad, his sister, Lois, cousin Phyllis and friend Dini. This picture is for Phyllis. She said she had never had her picture in a blog.

A couple of happy pictures from Marsha last night in Ohio. The family went to a local winery.



Marsha brought back a souvenir from Ohio. Her brother, Rod and his wife, Katie, found this neat beer holder emblazoned with the Cleveland Indian Logo. Cool.


Update on the Tribe…They end April in FIRST place in the Central Division of the American League. GOOOOOO Tribe!

Our next blog will be about our visit to downtown Las Vegas and the Strip. Come on back and see if the slogan, “What goes to Vegas, stays in Vegas,” is true!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day.

    Are you saying that it was the wine that put the smiles on their faces :-)))

  3. What a view Marsha had on her return trip. Must have been a clear day. Love the beer holder.

  4. WOW! What kinda beer holder is that? Looks a little cumbersome. Careful, don't drop that brew.

  5. Paul-know you are glad Marsha is back! Those are some pictures taken from the airplane. The beer cooler can double as a boxing glove it appears.

  6. Great photos from the airplane.

    Sure glad that wasn't Marsha coming down in one of those parachutes!

  7. Great pictures and nice beer holder.

    She is very lucky to have her dad to visit with and tell her stories from the road..

  8. Marsha. . .no matter how wonderful it is to see family and friends. . .I know you are happy to be "home."

    Loved the pics of the mountains. . .we are headed to that very place next week!


  9. Beautiful pictures of the mountains...even with the sn*w. Nice pictures of you with the fam.

    When I read "Marsha brought back a souvenir from Ohio. Her brother, Rod and his wife, Katie," I was thinking, "How did she fit them in her suitcase." LOL

    Nice pictures of you with the family. Hope the trip back wasn't too painful.

    Enjoy the Strip. It is an experience.

  10. Great pictures from the airplane. I wonder if they get those pilots for cheap?? Reminded me of an old episode of "Twilight Zone" where a guy keeps seeing weird furry creatures walking on the wing of the plane.

    Marsha that beer holder is something else!!


Thanks for leaving us a comment. We enjoy reading them. Have a great day!
