Touch Down

My wife is so funny, I love her. She had a blond moment. We get off the flight from Calgary into the airport at Frankfurt and the plane gets unloaded out on the tar-mat so we have to all bus in. She starts talking to a guy next to her and finds out he is from Canmore. Then we get into the terminal with the same group of people and starts talking to someone else and finds out he is from Calgary.

She looks at me all excited and says "Isn't it exciting meeting all these people from Alberta, in the middle of Germany no less!" I didn't know where to pop her bubble or let her enjoy the moment. I failed, I popped it. Should have keep my mouth shut because she was really enjoying herself.

Speaking of touch downs, in Accra, our destination in Ghana, the touchdown was a lot of fun. As soon as the plane touched down there was clapping and hooting. Took me by surprise. Then when we came to a full stop it turned into a revival meeting on board. There were “hallelujahs” and “Praise the Lords” from all four corners of the cabin. It was pretty cool. Wes told us that Ghana is quite Christian, and those that are not are not Christian are not comfortable telling people that they are not.



  1. LOL Jordan that is the funniest thing I have heard in a while. Had to stop and giggle before finishing. That is so something Tyler would do. I wouldn't be able to hold back either. Anyway have a great trip.

    God Bless you guys,

  2. I don't get it? Canmore and Calgary are both in Alberta...

  3. Ohhh, ok, I get it. You were all on the same flight from Calgary.

  4. I read that first comment and thought to myself, "Hmmmm, weird that some woman named Pat would poke fun at her husband Tyler for having blonde moments. That's kinda disrespectful, isn't it?" Then I realized it was my HUSBAND Pat poking fun at me! So yeah, one point for him. Total blonde moment. ;)

  5. It is very good that we can laugh at ourselves. :-) Makes for a much happier life.
