Finally made it into the North Island
« on: August 02, 2012, 05:35:47 PM »
After nearly 20 hours I finally arrived in New Zealand but I managed to have a good sleep on the long haul from LA to Auckland. 

In 4 hours I should be landing in my home town, it has been a good journey, I've thought of you all on the way home and the a great time we shared in Washington DC, what an amazing city.

I will write more when I get home and have had a few hours sleep, have a good meal and played with my babies for a while...two and four legged ones.

Until then, I miss you all, and have some very special memories to keep me going until next time.

Glad to hear that you are just about home. That is a long journey and you deserve some rest and time with the babies.

Glad you made it back safely.  I was a little concerned that the the Secret Service agent from the White House might surprise you ar the airport!  there are some people that you do NOT want to notice you.
It was fantastic seeing you again.

After I got your text I thought about you all afternoon...well truth be told I've been thinking about you all day and night after everyone's delays (except Sir Pozniceguy who got the royal reception on his flight.) But I trust by now you're home and safe and by this time next month you'll have sorted out your case ;D

Glad you've made it home safely.  I'm missing everyone already and am already looking forward to next year.
