Iain and I took a little holiday for my birthday, and our return flight was canceled, so we ended up having a 24-hour delay until we could get on another flight, and then that flight was delayed on the runway, and I'm not sure when the hell we ever would have taken off, had a lovely air traffic controller not been on our flight (and the third in Iain's and my row), who made a few calls to get us off the ground. (LOL whut? I know!)
ANYWAY. I'm back now, and we had a lovely time (minus the slight glitch, although of course we made the best of it).
My profound thanks to the other mods, and to Aphra for her terrific posts, while I was away. I am very lucky indeed to have such good friends and colleagues, and to have such a terrific husband, who is the best company, a most excellent traveling companion, and forever my favorite person on the planet. ♥
