Have a great time! Let us hear from you while you are vacationing. My yard is taking care of itself while we are away, and then the real work will begin. That is when I realize how important we are. How much longer will we be able to do this? Linda@Wetcreek Blog
Clever idea to want to talk about the yard while hubby is trapped in an airplane seat next to you JP. :-)
I imagine from that far up, we do seem like a minute part of life on earth.

What an amazing picture! Everything looks so much bluer than we see down here. We have been watching the show "Cosmos" and compared to the trillions of galaxies and such, we are so very tiny, almost nothing.

That's why I love the window seat because you get these gorgeous views. I also know what you mean and it's such a humbling thought.
We humans to tend to overrate our importance sometimes, don't we? Have a good time.

Phil and I both ask each other that question when we look up at the stars!! We are but a tiny speck in Mother Nature's melting pot.

Incredible view from the plane! I haven't been on a plane in probably 18 years. Hope you and the Pres have a wonderful time!
An amazing photo, and you're right! But at the same time, as you no doubt know, sometimes something will happen and show you just what a small place the world can be.

My Shug and I always get inspired and talk a lot more when we don't have the distractions if the house.

Yes... being up in a plane can really put it all in perspective, can't it?
