Home Again

We're home, our house is standing and our own bed soon awaits us. Travel was filled with minor annoyances, but these were more than offset by a nice round of serendipity while we were waiting for our plane. As we wandered over to round up some lunch for me, we ran into Maureen Kincaid Speller and her husband Paul Kincaid, who are heading to the SFRA conference in Kansas. This made for a much better lunchtime than we'd expected.

I hope that they made their connecting flight OK, since there were some delays leaving Heathrow.

Will to stay awake is fading.... more tomorrow.

We made all our connections just fine (thanks to the goddess of tail winds), though I have to say that landing in Kansas City in a small domestic jet in a thunderstorm is an experience I am not immediately dying to repeat.

MKS (in Kansas City, about to go to Lawrence)

I'm glad your connections went smoothly. When we heard the pilot talk about traffic delays at Heathrow, you guys were instantly in our thoughts.

I'm sorry that you got the up-close-and-personal introduction to the lovely Midwestern weather. While I haven't done that precisely, I imagine that the time we crossed the Rockies in a puddle-jumper and got caught up in the backwash of a jet coming into Denver airport gives me a basis for empathy. I hope the weather is better for your return! Have fun at the conference!
