This was nice. We went to California to honor Martin's uncle at a funeral. Fortunately, funerals often create family reunions. Martin was able to connect with cousins he grew up with and we spent some valuable time with his mother and had a wonderful evening at his sister's home.
This was not nice:
Being bumped from our flight on Sunday night while our luggage went on to Dallas without us. We did, however, receive compensation for future flights, two toothbrushes, some toothpaste and a man's plastic comb. What?
Anyhoo, we were put up in a hotel, had a nice meal at an Italian restaurant close by and washed out our underwear in the bathroom sink. The meal voucher we got bought us half a breakfast and I was able to find hair spray at the airport the next morning. We got home at 5:00pm Dallas time and got to sleep in our own bed.
I'm still having nightmares about the comb.
