I recently returned from a trip to spend time with my daughter and family in Connecticut. As you know the day after I booked the trip, I broke my leg while stepping down a step on my front porch. I was cleared for take off by the Doctor just the day prior to my flight, so by departure time I was still struggling with the crutches and not very mobile. My flight across the country was absolutely perfect. It seemed the attending staff nearly knocked each other out of the way to be helpful. I was seated in the front of the airplane so after take off, they got my carry on bag down and I used it to prop up my leg to prevent more swelling. It couldn't have gone more smoothly.

My daughter and I took a rare moment out together for lunch and visited a Umi Sushi restaurant in West Hartford. It certainly was a new concept to me. There is a conveyor belt loaded with little dishes that you pick from and eat as soon as you desire. You were able to pick it an eat it in a matter of seconds. How perfect is that. Only danger here is to your pocket book and waist line as this system delivers instant gratification.

Pedro, a full member of the family, came to the US when Melissa and Scott came home from Bulgaria in 2001. He was a street rescue who had distemper as a pup leaving one leg very affected . Aging hasn't been kind to Pedro and so he and I limped around together.
Often when visiting far away family, we fill up the hours seeing all the sights and go, go, going. My leg made this impossible this trip and I was blessed with a 'week in the life of the Roderick family.'
