28 Aug, We said our sad good byes at Manchester this morning; check in no problems 3 bags
 total weight about 70kgs, the air port was very busy, lots of people, plane late arr in Manchester
we sensed problems with connection time in Frankfurt but were told we will connect!!!

29 Aug We finally arrived in Chicago at 7-30pm German time 12-30pm local time, we had to stay
overnight in Frankfurt as we missed our connecting flight because we were 1 hour late leaving
Manchester, on arriving in Frankfurt we had to get off the areoplane catch a bus to terminal B
then a sky train to terminal A to gate A63 we ran up and down steps and when we arived at the
 gate at 5-30 the time the flight was due to leave, we were told by the girls on the gate,"sorry you
have missed the flight" I said "it is still sitting there" "sorry the gate is now closed" so they sent us to the other end of the very long terminal only to find "service desk" closed, so when we did find the service desk that was open in terminal B we got a hotel room and evening meal, even trying
to find the shuttle bus to the hotel was a mission such a big airport.I believe that Lufthansa could
not get our bags on the flight quick enough so "only 2 people leave them" As it worked out the overnight stay was good as the flight was in the day time.Suzanne and Nathan were at the airport so it was nice to see them after all the drama. Weather here in Chicago is what summer should be
like nice and warm with plenty of sunshine and with a bit of humidity. 

 31 Aug Nathan Had is 2 month check today and had 4 injections and an oral vaccine; brave boy, Suzanne and I felt it more than Nathan seem to.He weights 11lbs 11ozs and is 23 inchs long

1 Sept
Suzanne and I walked Oilver to school, also today Suzanne,Lorraine and I
are going to see the "Beach Boys" tonight or whats left of them at the Ravinia outside venue.
Since we have been here now 4 days we enjoying the Chicago family life, and the weather is nice.

We have enjoyed following your world travels! Glad you are back in the USA at last and wish you could find time to come down to our North Carolina mountains for a visit. We have had a good summer with few doctor problems. Are anxious to get traveling again. Love, Dexter & Jo Ann

Sorry you missed your flight my lovelies but these things are meant for a reason, yours being Suzanne and Nathan at the airport. How beautiful they both look. Oliver's bookwork looks very impressive I will have to push Mela a bit harder. Will tell more in an email.Keep well and enjoy each and every moment.
