The rest of the week was me popping in to surprise family and friends when they were expecting me to Skype them
It was especially good to see my family (the entire Carle entourage on Christmas eve and then a few more for lunch at Andy's Mediterranean Grille), cousin Tim and Gail, and a nice array of friends at the Rockbottom (Bill, Tom, Rod, Michelle, Jeff, Cliff, Carroll & Di, Charlotte, Adam and his squeeze, and a few I’ve forgotten I’m sure and apologize for doing so) I appreciate everyone who took time to see me while I was in town.
Now its your turn to come see me in my new home…all of you!
I forgot how cold it gets in the Midwest (its 7F/-14C) at the airport as I sit waiting for the AA personnel to arrive and take my baggage and hopefully transport it safely and completely to Hanoi. My friends in Hanoi are saying its soooo cold back there (65-72F), I welcome that kind of "cold".
Thanks Bill for setting me up with auto insurance for the few days I still owned (and drove) the Jetta
It was nice to meet Amelia, Charlotte’s new companion. I really think a tool belt is in order for her on the job site, though.
If I missed you in recognizing you its not that I don’t appreciate you its just that I am so tired sitting at CVG when most people are going home from the bars, that my brain isn’t fully functional yet.
Happy New Year to all my friends and especially my family…and 2010 is the year you should plan a trip overseas to visit – ME!
PS - when I took the phone back to Calvin he said I brought him good luck - the day after he met me he got a job, his mom started improving and will soon be released from the hospital and his' wife's overdue unemployment check suddenly appeared in their mailbox. He invited to his family Christmas dinner next year...I guess I may have too come back again :-)
