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.

  1. That is funny, but not. How easy it is to forget to appreciate the little things we take for granted. Like a comb and clean underwear. :)
