We were up and out at 4 am, arriving at Heathrow about 4:45. Breezed through immigration and left with three hours to kill. Leisurely breakfast, one last tour of the shops to squander our notes and coins. Pulled away from the gate early. Excellent, roomy seats on American, but lousy entertainment. Eight and half hours later, we are home, everything ahead of schedule.
Ed and Norah's cousin, Georgia, kindly picked up Norah and whisked her back to Valparaiso, IN. Ed and I luxuriated in the love of our kitties, Sophia and Galina, and the mounds of cat hair that accumulated in 28 days with no vacuuming. A wonderful trip and great to be home.
