Leaving On A Jet Plane

All my bags are packed I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn
The taxi's waitin' he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh baby, I hate to go

I'm off again this morning heading east.  This time our destination is Maine (The Pine Tree State).  I haven't been to Maine in over 40 years.  Growing up in Jersey, we would do family camping trips up north in the New England area every summer.  I am hoping for some cooler weather and really fresh seafood.  I may even try some Maine lobster.  

Somebody's not happy I am leaving

Aw, you are so cruel! How could you leave her behind? :-)

Have fun! I guess it is too early for the trees to be turning...

That song is so sad. Sing it, pooch!

I hope you have time for some fun in Maine. Yes, it should be cooler than what you're used to. I've never been there, but it looks inviting!

This is probably a great time of year to be heading up that way. Hope it's not all work and no play for you.
I bet the dogs are so excited to see you when you come home from trips. I know Chancie mopes around when my hubby leaves for a while, and is beside herself when he comes home. Maybe bring 'em some lobster treats as consolation...

It must be hard to leave those cute, furry faces behind, but what a reward when they welcome you back home again.
