ants/frogs

In response to 141273: Little Fire Ants, etc., posted by Shirley on Friday, 1 September 2017, at 5:56 a.m.

While flying back home recently from an extended business trip on the mainland I spent the first two hours of the flight back replaying the nonstop frustration starting with landing at LaGuardia, after a 6 hour flight, only to sit on tarmac for 90 minutes because of airport construction. The 62 mile drive from the airport to our Connecticut jobsite took almost 3 hours at 8 pm. We left New York for Nashville, El Paso, Los Angeles and Monterrey Bay. Everyplace we stopped to work all our talk revolved around how crowded everything was, all the time. When landing at San Jose the trip from the airport to our lodging in Santa Cruz at 3 pm on a Saturday took almost 4 hours. The drive the next day to Monterrey bay took two hours to go 46 miles. When I finally got over myself I thought of a comment our granddaughter made to us a few months ago. I was complaining about something and after I finished she commented that, in her opinion, our family has "first world problems." After reading the ant/frog thing I'll be happy to categorize the ant complaints as "first world problems--in paradise."
