Sao Paolo to Raleigh by way of Dallas



Welcome to the Friday BoomerLit Blog Hop. 
http://boomerlitfriday.blogspot.com/

Check out this week's snippet.  Angela and Bodine are on their way home with a stopover in the Dallas-Ft. Worth airport.


Angela turned on her phone with the intention of checking voicemail at home. Before she could make a call, her cell phone beeped with two messages. One from Jackson asking her to call him, and another from QTEE saying she would call again later. Angela was too tired to think about talking to anybody, and instead checked her messages on their home answering machine.

There were a few calls from friends and family who said in their message they didn’t know if Angela was on another cruise. In addition, there was a call from Rev. Carolyn saying Isaiah, her “Little Man” had passed away. The funeral would be on Monday. Angela would have a day to unwind from the trip and still be able to go to the funeral. She reflected for a few minutes on Isaiah. He was such a gentle man. She never knew how he contracted AIDS, and didn’t much care.

I like the way you show seniors as being up-to-date with current technology, even though it sounds like Angela wishes she hadn't checked her messages.
Great excerpt.

Very nice. I can feel her mood, the exhaustion of travel, the sadness of losing a friend.

This is an interesting, cutting edge concept, to merge internet action with live things going on in an exciting world. Excellent!
