Leaving On A Jet Plane


Last week we took a drive up to the lake house.
It was cold...
...very, very cold.
It was gray.


In Florida...it is blue...
...and the prettiest shade of blue green.

Oh my bags are packed...
I'm ready to go...

(I think I feel a song coming on...)

Tomorrow I am going to visit my Dad!
Mr. Flea is reluctantly letting me go.
I will miss you Mr. Flea.

So kiss me and smile for me,
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
I'm leaving on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again.
Oh, Babe...I wanna go!

Remember that song? 

Hey, he could come if he wants!
He wants to ski!

:)

Freezing here in SW France (but sunny) could do with some Florida sunshine. Happy flea hunting

Looking at those photos...I think I'd rather be skiing in Florida! If I'm gonna get a wet bottom...give me the warm ocean every time.
Have a great time with your dad. Are you gonna sneak in a visit with Shelley?

Lucky you! It's 9 degrees here in Michigan. No sun, just gray skies.

I'd love to be on a white sand beach or at a flea market.

Have fun. I hope to find lots of treasures.

P.S. I remember that song by Peter, Paul, and Mary. Am I giving away my age?

June said...

By now I am sure you are in sunny FL and enjoying time with dad, but still wanted to come and wish you a happy time with him Laura. I bet he is so happy to have you there visiting.
Oh yes, I remember that song well :)
hugs from here...

I sure do remember that song. It has very special meaning for me, it was sent, as my now husband was leaving to backpack around Europe, just after we had started dating! We must be of the same vintage!! Enjoy your visit with your Dad...and warm sunny Florida. N.

My mother used to sing that song ALL of the time...and now nearly every time I'm getting ready to leave the house, I sing or hum that tune out of habit. Too funny. Enjoy that beautiful sunshine!
