Today we enjoyed one of life's simple pleasures, retrieving missing luggage. More specifically, Mr.Vintagesoutherns' luggage.
The good news is, his luggage made it to Israel. The bad news is, he didn't!
Mr. Vintage left for a 10 day tour of the Holy land last week with the church group. He made it as far as the airport in Newark and got snowed in. Unfortunately this was his view for the next two days.
After boarding two planes, mechanical failure, de-icing problems ( the truck caught fire), the first plane getting stuck in the snow after being grounded and having to be towed and sleeping on the airport floor, two days later they tried again.
Because of major overbooking and airport closures, they were not able to accommodate all of the group. They had decided the venture would be all or none so once again they exited another plane.No flights were available to get them anywhere near home so the boarded a Trailways for a sixteen hour ride.
The group returned home very positive... tired but positive. It was a trip that for some reason was not meant to be. I'm sure they will make plans to go again later.
The luggage arrived today after quite an adventure. Too bad no one was available to add souvenirs to it along its unscheduled route.
I better go, need to get Mr. Vintage some medicine, the only thing he brought back was a cold.
Have a good week and y'all come back!
