Life at 38,000 feet

The baby in the row behind me and on the other side of the aisle has been grizzly since we took off (but I can’t really blame him because my ears are popping too);  the guy in the seat behind me is too tall for an economy seat so he’s been bumping my chair every few minutes for the last 2 plus hours – very annoying; and the gal in front of me is reclined as far as one can recline.  But it’s -43 degrees Celsius outside so it could be worse…the window could be open.

One of the first things that happened on board was the offer of food…not a great thing for me.  The menu included all kinds of food I couldn’t eat:

So I had to settle for snacks, which I could eat:

I’m returning home after what, I would have to say, was a very successful trip to visit our rental properties on Conception Bay, Nfld.  I have figured out how to get rid of one tenant who is filthy (thanks to mein host at The Spaniard’s Room – a great B&B in Spaniard’s Bay.  This was my second visit to The Spaniard’s Room because we had such an amazing experience last year when we stayed for a week) which my property manager will carry out AFTER collecting his rent on August 1st.   Unfortunately she tells me that we are going to have to send a professional cleaning crew in to fumigate the apartment – enough said.   Definitely time for him to go.

On a positive note, I met with our new tenant, who seems very nice and reconnected with 2 of our long-standing tenants who are terrific.

Had a great dinner last night including my first ever taste of moose!  Still haven’t seen a moose in the flesh – which is probably just as well when hurtling down the highway at 120 because I had a plane to catch and I left late (I’m sure my husband will be astonished to read that) – but now at least I’ve tasted one.  Last year it was cod steak, which was to die for.

Got to the airport and I had gone $100 worth over my kilometre allowance.  Thanks to the staff at Thrifty who couldn’t help me with it this year, but told me how to handle that next year to avoid extra charges.

All in all, I had a great time and thoroughly look forward to my annual visits to The Rock and am so grateful that I own property there, which gives me the excuse I need to visit.   Thank you Yvonne, Greg, Lorraine, Wilf and Betty for once again, making my visit memorable.
