The warmth of the sun

Flew home yesterday. Left Kamloops at 11:30 am. Walked in our door at 11:30 pm. Is Kamloops on another continent?

Drove from Kamloops to Kelowna, flew from Kelowna to Seattle, then Seattle to LA. The big hiccup was "mechanical problems" in Seattle that had our flight at 5:55 not departing. At 6:20 they still were waiting to tell us when (or if) our flight would depart. We saw a flight leaving at 7:50 (which meant it had already begun boarding) in a different terminal. Got ourselves onto that flight which was actually going to fly into the sky and watched as the 37 seats that were open, filled to capacity with other people who had been standing around waiting for our previous flight. (our original flight was later canceled and all the people who didn't get on the flight we were on had to catch even later flights.) 2nd to last row of the plane, we didn't care anymore. We just wanted to get home.

Our luggage (as seems to be the case more and more) did not make the same journey. It arrived sometime far later than us and I am now waiting at home for its delivery. I'd much rather wait for my luggage to come to my house that to my hotel room. I have more clothes here.I am in no hurry to wear my down filled puffy parka. I'm wearing shorts.

I don't care how soon my Gucci boots get here. I have on flip flops.
