We landed yesterday at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, where it was partly cloudy and the temperature was 99 degrees. Ah, home sweet home! My brother and I had a great time in Maine seeing friends and family, but are glad to be back. The security checkpoints after the terrorist threat were not that bad. If you pack correctly they don't hold you up for too long. We brought my Mom, who couldn't make the trip as we had hoped, lots of her favorite donuts from Frank's Bakery in Bangor, Maine. She really is not supposed to eat them, but she is 81, and should live a little. With the world in turmoil these days, so should we all.
