We’ve been saying our good-byes throughout the day today, and now we just have to get ourselves to the airport tomorrow morning. “Ich leide dem Abschied”, has been my mantra today. Which, loosely translated is something like, “It’s sad to say good-bye”. This was met with knowing nods.
I’ll now offer a brief photo essay.
And….that has been our life over the last couple days.
Then it comes down to this.
And actually, there’s a bit of a story there. It seems that the bikes were placed on the “air shipment” list. Couldn’t find them listed anywhere. Everything has to be listed. No exceptions. So the boss and I had to go back upstairs and put them on the normal list. That was it for anything remotely close to a mishap. Of course, we’ll see how things look when we open the packages in several weeks.
Everything gets sucked up into the vortex of the shipment. Even my old running shoes that I was going to turf out. Damned if I didn’t leave them sitting in the living room yesterday at the end of the day. They were starting to hurt my feet, which is exactly why I was willing to part company with them. They got packed. Looks like I’ll be seeing them one last time.
Hey, maybe I’ll wear them in the garden. I’m such a cheap bastard.
At the end of it all, there are meters to be read, along with a fairly thorough inspection. Everything was in good shape.
We’re kind of anal that way.
And then, it all goes back to this…
We’ve given back our keys, car and cards for the parking garage. We’re done.
Whatever could be given away, went.
See you all on the flip side.
Thanks for stopping in.
