Leaving On A Jet Plane

Cue the Peter, Paul & Mary. Or better yet John Denver. He wrote the song, you know, even though we often associate it with the former.

This hilariously dated hippie-dippie video is completely redeemed once John and Cass Elliot start singing. What glorious harmony.

Real life has a way of intruding into our blogging, doesn’t it? And my blogging is coming to a screeching halt for a while. BH and I are getting on that jet plane tomorrow for a long-anticipated trip to Taiwan and….be still my heart….Japan! I’ve been yearning to see Japan my entire life – or at least since reading “Shogun” back in the seventies. To say I am excited would be an understatement.

I promise to bore you all thoroughly with tales of my adventures when I get home. And maybe I’ll even have some cool new airport carpets to show you.

I leave you with my most recent favorite shot of Max, apropos of nothing in this post but too cute not to share. Oh yes, Max will be staying with friends while we’re gone who will take him boating and spoil him rotten. As it should be.


Zai Jian and Sayonara!


About Silver in the Barn

Life in a 1915 farmhouse in Central Virginia. And the odd thought or two.

    I keep missing your posts! Not showing up in my Reader 😦
    Came to find your recent season challenge and stumbled on this. I watched a program on John Denver the other night, not one of my favourite singers I have to say, but he did have a good voice. This song makes me cry though…

    Have a blast in Japan. I too loved Shogun 🙂
