Over Qatar

Altitude: 33,000 ft ASL
Airspeed" 514 MPH
Distance to Qatar: 733 Miles
Time: 0128 (1219 in St Louis)
Outside air temp: -22

I always hated traveling. For me, it was never about the trip itself,
but about getting there. The journey is slightly un-nerving when you're in
that in-between state where youv'e left one home but havent yet
established another. It's not quite so bad when your traveling with
your familiy and you can focus on the familiar faces, voices, mannerisms...
but it seems that the only think to do when you're alone is to focus
inward.

HEY Major MAJOR,

anything I write seems so trivial compared to what you are doing, bit maybe that's alright.

Uncle Alvin's birthday is this week, he'll be 84 and coming home from the nursing home this week also. He seems to be doing better, at least he can walk again with a walker.

Bob and Betty brought Aunt Carol down last week for her doctor;s appt. at U of M. She's doing o.k. and doc wants to see her again in Aug. She stayed down here at Kay's and Bob and Bettty are returning here thurs. to take her home and stay here for the week-end for some good junking. They will all go home on Sunday morn . Everyone asks about you and promises to do some heavy duty praying, ( fran and aunt Carol}. I only wish I thought it would some good.

Yesterday was Monday and we had a minor Monday night dinner of chicken-tortilini-spinach and parmesan cheese soup and corn on the cob. It was minor because on Thursday night we are having the Major Monday night dinner with Bob, Betty , Carol and Keith and Co. Now, if you understood all that, I'll explain the theory of relativity, ( if only I could spell it.)

We just returned from the movies. We saw a wonderful Indian-made movie called "water". It was a controversial and depressing subject but so beautifully filmed and presented that it was hard not to like it. I loved it.

I think about you all the time and wonder how you are.
I love you,

Yo Yo
