We made it back without a hitch. It’s only fair since I savaged Continental for its part in our fiasco getting to Europe to give them credit where credit is due. All the Continental flights – Edinburgh to Newark; Newark to LAX – left on time and arrived early. And all our baggage made the trip with us. We had a three hour plus layover in Newark, which we spent in the Continental President’s Club. I had always heard that the Newark President’s Club was the bomb, so I was looking forward to spending some time there. Let me tell you, it ain’t shucks up to the side of the Virgin lounge in LAX, not to mention the one at Heathrow. The Newark lounge is big, really big, but aside from size, it’s not much different from any other VIP lounge.
We’ve gone through the mountain of mail and messages that always lay in wait for anyone coming home from a long vacation. And we’ve finally decompressed from the trip and have shed our jet lag. And best of all, I have reliable internet service for the first time in several weeks. So, I’m back in the blogging saddle. It’s good to be home.
