|11:41 am - And thus ends a mad dash to the mid-west. . .|
After a few long delays, I fell asleep in my own bed last night around 2:30 AM (slightly later than I thought, as I was originally scheduled to deplane at 10:10 PM.
But I am home. And dead tired. And sporting my first hickey (much thanks to featherynscale, and more thanks for keeping it light and not-so-noticible).
I think I can sum up the weekend by repeating a short conversation I had on the plane:
Lady: "Where were you coming from?"
Me: "Kansas City. Was visiting family in Kansas."
L: "Oh, which part?"
M: "Downs, in Osborne County. North-central Kansas. Then down to Wichita for a very small reunion and a 50th Anniversary party on Saturday, and then back to Kansas City for Sunday and this morning."
L: "Oh, do you have family in Kansas City, too?"
M: "No, but I have some friends who know how to take very good care of me."
More later. . .

Glad to hear that you made it back ok. Sorry about the extreme amount of chaos... Perhaps your patron and mine colluded to give us an 'interesting' time (in the most chinese sort of way)?
Chaos? Where was there chaos?
I'm just hoping I wasn't in the way. I still think your family was perfectly well-behaved and sane. :)
Thanks :) Good to see a pretty smooching face in my journal :)

She didn't find the hickey. I was fortunate.
Very fortunate :)
It was good to meet you in person finally, and not just in the annals of saffronhare
's friends page. Mark my words, one of these days I shall
flaunt, if I haven't forgotten how!
Having been to one flaunt, I admit. . . I wanna do it again. :)
