Ample Ramblings Forum #2

Before the blog has been two iterations of an Ample Ramblings forum that had a few postings. We are saving them here for posterity.

Seat belt extenders on airlines
posted by Susan on 11/17/04

I did some traveling in October, visiting in and around Cleveland. i had no accommodation problems anywhere and it was terrific. The only "event" worthy of comment was on the American Airlines flights--all four of them. As I got on the plane, I asked the attendent for a seat belt extender. Each time the attendent nodded compliance but in a secretive manner, as if we were sharing a shameful secret. Each time, an extender was brought to me very quickly and handed to me in the most surrepticious manner she or he could devise, in order, apparently, to save me the humiliating embarrassment of being publically "outed" as a fat person. Each time I laughed, thanked the attendent, and then asked, loudly, if anyone else needed an extender.

I wish this new forum had a spell check because my spelling is terrible. I'm glad you're back. Susan Koppelman

Apache Junction, AZ
posted by Carl on 12/01/04

We have moved to a campground in Apache Junction, Arizona. We are about twenty miles east of Phoenix. The campground is called Budget RV but has its charms despite the low-cost name. The perks include a cheery clubhouse and free DSL. We expect to be here for a month.

The weather has been unusually cold for this part of the world, with a freeze predicted for overnight. We are keeping warm by using an electric fan-forced heater (the RV has a furnace, but the electric unit is more cost-effective). We also had the foresight to have our fall wardrobes and a supply of cozy blankets on hand, so we are weathering the weather nicely.
