Today, Robb and I are going to embark on a Major Experiment. We are going to try to fly. Before you say to yourself, "Wow! That Robb is certainly determined," and start marveling at what he's learned in all those physical therapy sessions, I'll explain.
My friends Erica and Chris are getting married this Spring in Buffalo, New York. Erica was my housemate for many summers when I worked at the Glimmerglass Opera. Robb and I would love to attend this wedding, but we're unsure if he would be able to manage the trans-continental flight. So, we decided to try a short trip to see how air travel agrees with Robb.
We're flying up to Portland, Oregon and from there we will travel to Washington State (I always say it that way, since I grew up just outside of Washington, DC). We're going to soak in the local color, and attend a bunch of events with our letterboxing pals.
Wish us luck! To anyone who thinks bad thoughts, Linguine says "Phooey!"
