"I'm Leaving On A Jet Plane"

You know this song, by John Denver?

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 babe, I hate to go....

Here is how my version of the song goes....

All my bags are packed
The laundry is done  
All my emails are returned
The kids are so fun
The refrigerator is full  
The bills are paid
Work is bummed but already done  
I'm leavin' on a jet plane  don't know when I'll be back again...
Oh babe, I am outta here....
and unsupervised at the NFR 
Do Wap Wap Wap....

Yup, that is right.  National Rodeo Finals in Vegas; cowboys, bull riding, roping, 
shopping and room service with my girl, Jen.  Did I mention, we are unchaperoned?

Pray for us, it could be a rough weekend.

Also please pray for my dog because she is the only responsible one left at my house, and she is obsessed with herding the pool sweep.

Also, pray that I don't get up on any tables and sing.  (Please pray this one, twice.)  

Thank you.

Peace, Love and Viva Las Vegas...A
