Where in the World is Pilot Petitt?

Detroit, New York, Chicago and Home!

Wednesday: Arrival from Amsterdam…32 hours awake and I finally slept… 12 hours at the Westin, Detroit Airport Hotel! Yes, I slept 12 hours! If you’ve never slept at a Westin… you don’t know what you’re missing. Thunderstorms... What thunderstorms?

Thursday: A 35 minute rush to check in for a full flight… but they found me a seat, and I was headed East to New York for dinner with my friend Heather.

Heather McCorkle spent four days in New York at the NY Pitch and Shop. You can find Heather on her personal blog: or at http:///www.scribesisters.blogspot.comExciting news coming on the success of her novels! Aspiring writers need to contact and follow Heather. She is an inspiration to all!


Friday: A short night sleep and I was off to Chicago for my baby daughter’s bachelorette party!
I got to meet her mother-in-law and sister-in-law to be, Kathy and Kate. Great people! We ate, drank, shopped, and neglected sleep for 2 days!

Krysta, Allison, Kathy, Karlene and Kate!
Sunday: My flight home, compliments of Southwest Airlines, was nothing short of inspirational. 39 WWII Vets returning home after a quick tour to Washington... and they all wanted to meet me! Ahhh... I was honored. Pictures, laughter, stories, and autographs... a fun flight.

Now... bedtime! Four days home and I’m off again.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
