Sunday, March 13th

Good news, bad news…..yesterday’s storms abated and today’s skies were clear and sunny …..but that prevented us from ascertaining if our rain-catchers were correctly placed.  Oh, welll….what can you do?  We’ll keep the pots in place and hope for the best.

We moved onward to packing for the trip.  You’d think we’d have packing down to a science by now but it always takes longer than anticipated.  Laying out the clothes we think we’ll need, seeing what fits in the suitcase, adding the extra little goodies that we’re bringing home, moving all the liquids and gels to one of the suitcases that will be checked, getting all the paperwork together, logging in to the airline’s website to get our boarding passes…..it all takes time.  We didn’t finish until 6 pm. 

Interestingly, since I asked for handicapped assistance in October, our seats have been preassigned.  Although Craig is able to change his seat assignment, I’ve lost that privilege.  Even more interesting, I could print my boarding passes but not Craig’s.  He needs to check in at the counter to get his.  Hmm…..are middle-aged Caucasian men being profiled?

Felix knows something’s up and he isn’t happy about it.  He’s a typical male…he doesn’t like change.  Due to the leaks in the roof, his house is in disarray…..and those darn suitcases are out again.  He knows this can’t mean anything good and he’s hiding out in the loft.
