Today's an important day for yours truly. At 4am this morning, Inappropriately Hot Foreign Wife and The Boy began their 2nd attempt at returning home to 'Assachusetts. As I write, the first leg of the trip is finished. My wife's cousin drove them 6 hours from Vitoria Da Conquista, a pretty little city on a mountain plateau, to Salvador, the capital of Bahia, Brazil's resort area, and also the closest major city. In this fashion they cut out the first plane ride, which was the proximal cause of their stranding last month. So, last I heard, they were all checked in. Now, it will take two more layovers and 18 hours of flight time for them to arrive in Boston. I am hoping for the best. In the meanwhile, if I had a lump of coal, I could probably clench it between my butt cheeks, and in the time between now and when they land in Boston, I could have a diamond.
Sorry for the imagery.
