Passengers and workers packed their bags that they would never open.

So hard to believe 9/11 was 22 years ago tomorrow.

Passengers and others went about packing their bags that they would never open. Slept in their own beds with their loved ones. First responders thought it was going to be an ordinary day.

I was working for American Airlines as a flight attendant at the time. I spent the day before flying in/out of NYC, and was on a runway in LA racing down the runway when the pilot stopped dead cold on the runway. He called me up and told me the FAA had grounded us. Didnít know why.
(I suspect he did )Just so happened that the Pres Crandall of AAís secretary was flying first class and waved me over to tell me about a Ďhijackingí. When we returned to the gate we were just learning it about from passengers. I was dragging my bag into the terminal when I saw people clustered around the TVís. Itís putting it mildly to say I was nerved wrecked for days. My sister came and got me (she lived nearby) and it took me 11 days to get home from there.

Take a moment to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
Thank people who cross your lives.
This IS the finish line.
May all the people who died RIP and so many heart broken people affected by it find some peace.

My best Gardening tip

People often ask me for Gardening tips. Hereís one:

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it.
If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

If this keeps happening Gov Abbott may find himself without a job.


A weather windstorm toppled a light pole across I-45 south Dallas to Houston.
My friends were stranded in standstill traffic for over 5 hours yesterday, with
Miles and miles of cars stuck on the freeway.
As they got to Centerville and thru Huntsville they said all these towns had
NO POWER FOR Several hours. Still many areas still without power this morning.

It was HOT a yesterday and having NO power for hours is not going to go down well in
Gov Hot Wheels country.
