Travelling

Alfond Inn
The Alfond Inn, Orlando
I'm sitting on a big aeroplane operated by "Delta" - in seat D1 to be precise and we are currently thirty thousand feet above the Atlantic Ocean. It's the morning flight from Manchester to Orlando, Florida. I didn't even realise that you can now connect to the internet whilst in flight! Quite amazing.

There's an enormous coffee-coloured woman next to me. Wobbly rings of flabby flesh are overlapping into my personal space and she is snoring like an old  sow. I believe that the technical term for her physical state is "obese" though it is not a word I normally like to see or even hear. Her body odour is also noteworthy - like a rugby team's forgotten laundry basket. 

In just over an hour, we'll be touching down and then I am going to get a cab to my hotel - The Alfond Inn - before travelling on to "The Laughing Horse Tavern" for tonight's big event. Oh my god, Michelin Woman has passed wind! Euurgh! ...See you there folks! And for those of you who cannot be in Orlando tonight - HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    1. You been smoking weed again Mama Thyme? Those things will never happen. See you in Betty's Tavern. I'll buy you a "bud" and if I might be so bold plant a little peck on your cheek for New Year. I hope BB won't mind

    2. Happy New Year YP. We're well into New Year's Day and the year ahead is looking good. Australia is putting in a bit to have the 2017 awards here in Queensland. We promise continual sunshine here in the Sunshine State.

    3. I am surprised that you were able to write this comment Helen. everybody knows how much alcohol the average Australian adult consumes on New Year's Eve... but I guess that you are not "average". Happy New Year!

  5. I'm sorry you've had to experience such turbulence during your flight, Yorkie! High winds are a-blowing it seems!

    I hope 2016 treats you more kindly than your flight did...may there be no more wind blowing your way. Happy New Year to you all. :)

    1. See you in "The Laughing Horse Tavern" Lee. I will be wearing a pink carnation so you should spot me pretty quickly. If you are nice, I will buy you a small dry sherry and then we can arm wrestle! Happy 2016!

    1. No way Jennifer! American women are clean and sweet-smelling. Like lilies of the valley. This woman was very definitely French! See you in "The Laughing Horse". If you are nice to me I might even buy you a drink!
