we are family... by summerfield

we are family...

found this 'family' this morning on our drive around the city after breakfast. some houses haven't removed their hallowe'en decors from their front yard. this was a real eye catcher especially that the sun was shining gorgeously on it. had a lot of crap around so i had to crop.

packing is slowly finishing up, as i just realized i really need to bring two suitcases with me for the trip. i'm bringing my runners, my dancing shoes (my friend would kill me if i don't!) and other stuff that i know i would need and not be able to find where i'm going. so that would be a good $70 for the second luggage from san francisco. meanwhile i am flying out of buffalo to san francisco and the baggage fee is $60 for the two. hopefully there is wi-fi at the hotel where i am staying tuesday night so i can still post, but maybe to be safe i will post my tuesday entry on tuesday morning before i leave for work.

getting down to the wire, folks. i would like to let you know in advance that i will try to post and not be tardy, but i'm guessing, thursday night and friday night would be difficult as i would be airborne at the time and would surely lose one day.
Nice capture and cropping. I did not take any photos of the decorations as there was usually too much other stuff to distract from it. Great job. The airlines all charge now for the baggage and that sucks..

@pamfromcalgary - really sucks, pam. in fact, i was looking at my e-ticket and i am left wondering what the difference is between 'energy surcharge' and 'fuel surcharge'. aargh! thanks for the comment, pam.

@roth - so i like it that you're back. our little family is complete for a few days until i leave. haha! thanks for the comment, sue.
