Well, the Great Adventure has begun. Darryl and I had a fine breakfast with his Mom yesterday morning then I dropped him off at the airport at 11:30.
He called last night from LA and was having a good trip so far. The Air New Zealand rep, Kelsey Fisk, was very helpful. She was able to change his seat from a middle seat (imagine a 12 hour plane ride sitting in the middle of 2 strangers) and was able to check his bags all the way to Rarotonga! She went the extra mile, calling customs in Rarotonga to confirm their acceptance of his one way plane ticket and letter to join Beaujolais. Thanks Kelsey for going the extra mile!
The Cats are not happy that Dad is gone. Normally at least 2 of them sleep on the bed with us. Mao, the Boy Cat, finally deigned to join me at 5:00 this morning. Mali didn't join me at all. She is wandering the house looking for Dad.
Anyway, I will do my best to keep this blog up in Darryl's absence and I am sure that he will be posting some spectacular stories when they have internet access!
All the best.
She Who Will be Obeyed.
