Flying out

So in about 3 hours I will be in the airport or on the way to it in order to pick up the first leg of my journey.  Heading out to Chicago to pick up a flight to Istanbul then to T*A.

I am sad that I was not given the traveler’s blessing in front of my congregation (the third rabbi didn’t have it on her calendar, Rabbi R was doing a service off-site, Rabbi B was in the other service).  I could go on about how disappointed I am but really that isn’t going to be very productive.  At least after services, I was given it by Rabbi B.  I am quite worried about the flight although I hear Turkish Air has good food and free wine.

I am doing all of this out of a backpack so people wanted to know my list.  Here is the list.
