Lift off
This is our seventh trip across the Pond, here's hoping we have as much fun as we did on the previous six.
I sent a Thank You Card to my former work mates thanking them for the fantastic send off they gave me and the for the Very Posh Bag they bought me. I predicted that the Posh Bag would be upgraded to business class whilst Reg & myself would be at the back of the plane next to the toilets, alas the latter prediction has alas come true.
The day started very well despite starting at 4:30am. Couldn't fault Delta everything went very well until we arrived at a very wet and foggy JFK. We had the fastest passage through customs ever checked our luggage in for the connecting flight. Went to the flight gate only to discover the flight had been cancelled & we had been booked on the shuttle flight from La Guardian to Ronald Reagan Int. Airport . Big problem then was retrieving our luggage which had been checked in for the cancelled flight to Dulles what a nightmare. We eventually got Reg's bags but no sign of mine. I only had one pair of clean knickers in my hand luggage & I wasn't going any were without my stash of new knickers & bras.. When my luggage eventually turned up we had to jump into a taxi for the dash to La Guardia. We virtually checked in and boarded the at once. At Reagan we had to get a taxi to Dulles were we had booked a hotel.
Considering I was suffering from severe alcohol & nicotine withdrawal symptoms I didn't loose my rag once & all credit to Reg he didn't use any naughty swear words he just said ( I'm p...... well fed up with this) several times.Almost 24 hrs. after our journey began I was about to fall into bed when he came out with this pearler (oh bloody hell I've left my tablets at home) False alarm.
On reflection we were lucky not far away there had been 3 very bad tornado's causing lots of damage Sylv..
