Getting off!

Sunday - last minute shopping that included trying to find a carryon bag for me to accommodate the camera equipment and still be under the weight limits.

We chose to rent a car to get back to the airport so we would not have to leave a car for Debra and Jonathan to pick up and so that one of them would not have to be at our house at 4:30 in the morning. Great idea . . . except that the rental car does not have a TexTag for the toll road to the airport.

Go to bed around midnight after finalizing the packing and picking up some of the "debris" from new luggage, new Lacie drives (boxes), new shoes, etc.

Set alarm 3:30 A.M.

Stagger out of bed 3:45 A.M.

Shower, dress, get out to car, leaving driveway 4:30 (Henry is already fretting - with a 7:00 flight we should BE at the airport at 5:00 and we have that rental car to return)

Arrive at airport about 5:10 - rental car is returned. The one bag of luggage is checked (supposedly all the way to Cape Town - hah!)

Breakfast at Lefty's on 6th Street (their location at the airport - near our gate) breakfast tacos.

Boarding the plane - sigh of relief . . . the adventure begins!
