Melissa is back in the U.S.A.!!

Melissa home from Africa!

Melissa home from Africa!

After some last minute plane changes Melissa is finally back home! When she arrived in London her next flight was not scheduled to leave for 17 hours. The problem with this was that they would not issue her a boarding pass until the next day so she wasn’t going to be able to get back into the terminal. After some pleading and I’m sure a look of desparation on her face the British Airways counter reps were able to get her on a United flight to JFK. There she only had a 6 hour layover and then flew she flew into LAX to arrive on Wednesday morning (8/13). Here she is as she is coming down the escalator to get her bags at the baggage claim area. Yay! She’s home!


About Moqqi

I was born in the Midwest but I have actually lived more of my life on the West Coast. I am looking forward to that day when I once again am living in the Midwest. Hopefully that will mean that I am retired and getting to live life at a bit of a slower pace! I've been married to the same guy for 36 years! We met when he was working for a semi-pro hockey team and I was selling tickets to the games. He also played hockey at an amateur and college level and I think I fell instantly in love when we went ice skating together and he saved me from crashing when someone behind me fell (I was skating backwards, he was skating forward, so we were facing each other.) and he reached out with his big, strong arms and grabbed both of my upper arms and just stopped me dead in my tracks to make sure I didn't fall over the person. My Hercules! I have two children, a son and a daughter. My son is an Registered Nurse and works in an ICU. He is married to a wonderful girl that I couldn't have hand picked better. They have produced the absolute, most cute and adorable Grandchildren that anyone could ask for! My daughter is now a Fifth Grade teacher. She has a joy and passion for teaching and loving her students that is not seen in many teachers these days. She truly found her calling. I have this blog because I thought it would be nice to have a place that I could share what is going on in our lives and I also just love to tell stories. I'm not a writer per se, but I do love a good story. Even if it's just a short little quip!
