The MyTSA app has been around for about 7 years but it took a while for it to become, well, useful. But finally…FINALLY…it’s something you may want to consider downloading (if you hadn’t already), and actually start using. Here’s why:
It’s the last weekend of 2017, y’all! Like many of you, I’m pretty much ready to let 2017 exit the building and maybe even let the door hit it on its behind as it leaves. Here’s to hoping that 2018 will be our best year yet!
Anyway, here’s a quick recap of the posts we wrote this week:

- Looking at more local places to travel in 2018.

Full disclosure: Joe and I don’t have kids or even nieces or nephews (only child who married an only child, can you believe it???). So I admittedly can’t look at this from a “I have experience and this is why I think this is a totally awesome/horrific idea.” But from a practical point of view….read on.

My cousin forwarded me the info for this jacket, which is being advertised as “the worlds best travel jacket.” Whenever I see something that’s touted as “the world’s best,” I take it with a grain of salt. Sorry, can’t help it; I may live in Florida now, but I’m still a cynical native New Yorker at heart. That being said, I still decided to check it out…

At the same time, I also clean installed High Sierra OS. This computer is as “like new” as it’s ever going to be. I’m sure Apple would have preferred me to buy a new one but this works just fine to write this article, thank you very much.
We’ve all been there – you’re traveling to somewhere and, with luggage in hand, have to go from the airport parking lot to the check-in desk, then through X-ray and then to your gate. And if you have “Joe and Sharon luck,” your gate is guaranteed to be THE LAST ONE, on the very far end, because reasons. Little kids have the right idea…be in a stroller or a baby carrier, or heck, just ride on the luggage. Wouldn’t that be awesome?
Well, now you can! It’s called…
