*Smile* We never actually went anywhere when I was a kid. Sometimes I'd stay with my grandparents, though. :)
I think we still have the original We're Going on an Airplane Trip upstairs in the library. I'll look for it for you (after we are bat-free). Since it is out of print maybe you should write an updated (post 9/11) version. You would be a great children's book author.
I kind of like the idea of writing a post 9/11 version, but it would be a bit scary. "Then the guards take the shoes off the little old lady who is too wobbly and feeble to put them back on herself." Blech.
I remember that trip to Borders too - I lost you for a minute, but then I came across you, reading, naturally!
Mom and I are off to Melody McVerry's surprise birthday party in a few minutes. We'll check on you when we get home.
