It was an early start at LAX.
The flight home was pretty uneventful. The boys played lego chess
and Carolyn talked non-stop for 5 1/2 hours of our six hours in the plane.
Luckily, she took a half hour nap and gave my ears a chance to stop bleeding.
When we arrived in Birmingham, we discovered that two of our bags hadn't. One of them showed up on the next flight. One of them didn't. Guess which bag Jim had accidently left the car keys in?
We ended up spending the night in Birmingham and hoping that the lost bag would show up overnight.
It didn't. We had to call a locksmith to come and cut us a new ignition key for the car. That was cheap. HA. So, almost 24 hours after we landed in Birmingham we finally got in the car. As we were pulling out of the hotel parking lot, the airline called to let us know our bag had arrived. Isn't that always the way?
But we made it home safely and that's all that matters! We came home to one VERY happy-to-see-us dog!
