News from Memphis air traffic control


We have been getting a play by play from Carbunkle our Memphis air traffic control about the progress and lack of regarding dcg and tq’s flights. Apparently travelqueen and travelprincess missed the plane but the cowgirl just sent me a text that she made it to Belize City – fingers crossed the other 2 make it.

Definitely more to come.

Just saw the jump plane fly by – wondering if  anyone we know is on it. I stood on the veranda and watched it fade into a tiny speck and the ultralights following behind. Caught little Erin online – they are staying at Francis and Vernon’s house and I told her to watch for them. She moved out to the dock and is telling me how many skydivers she sees falling from the sky and how the ultralights were flying so close to her.

    I was wonder why you were calling Carbunkle “flat” but now I get it! He got smushed jumping out the plane or shall I say on landing after jumping out of a perfectly good plane. LOL

    Ha Ha. It was funny when I had flat Carbunkle out at wet Willy’s he came up to me and said hey that’s Roblio we just called him the other night.

    Why do I feel violated and a little cheap this morning? Love the picture of the Captain and I, they all called us Thursday night and other than not having any Belikins to drink it almost feels like we are down there.

    So true Juls luckily she will get here today.

    Thought you would like that one Erin – we are careful to stick close by while using the spoon. Guess it is time to go toaster shopping. Wish you were still here – we miss you.

    SO FUNNY TO SEE the multi-purpose wooden spoon technique. ha ha! careful u dont have a fire!!
    we saw u waving from our plane taking off, but just barely, through our tears, wah wah!

    I wouldn’t miss my flight as I am usually hours early to the airports… I would go there the day before if I could!!! 26 more sleeps 😉

    ha ha good plan Carbunkle. She is the only person I know who has missed a flight to Belize more than once. Dcg texted when she was about to land so I ran out to veranda and started waving as her plane went over head in case she was sitting on that side of the plane .

    In the 3 years I have known TQ I think she has missed that 9AM flight to Belize (the one that we normally take) EVERYTIME! Next time we make a trip and she is going to be on the same flight I am requiring her to fly up to Memphis the night before and we would all go together so she could make the flight!
