Good To Be Home
Sunday August 4, 1991
Slept a little better thanks to a Unisom for sleep. Got up at 4:30 for a 7 a.m. breakfast in dining room. Then a long wait for our call to go through customs and leave the ship and get on our bus.
We arrive at the airport but one of our bags is missing. We send McKees ahead. Our bag is found downstairs at the curb. We line up to check in. Big mix-up! We're checked onto 10:30 a.m. plane but McKees are on 11:30 a.m. plane. We're able to get ours changed to 11:30 also. The plane ride 2-1/2 hours goes very fast. We're back in L.A. in no time.
The Flyaway bus delivers us to Van Nuys about 4:30. We're home about 5:10. McKees leave quickly for Palmdale to pick up something and then head home. Good to be home! We're tired!
No kidding, mom, I'm exhausted just hearing about your day. Getting thousand of passengers through customs all at once sounds grueling, and then dealing with changing flights, lost luggage, making bus connections, all very stressful stuff. I'm having second thoughts about taking a cruise. Anyone been on a cruise out there? Is it worth all the aggravation?
