They Made It.

Well I just got off the phone with Shantel and she is currently exploring the Commissary and PX at Weisbaden with her friend Emilie. So she and Macen have both made it to Germany safe and sound.

According to Shantel she had no issues during the flight. Macen slept most of the way from KC to DC and that there was a very sympathetic woman who helped her with the car seat as she moved between gates in DC and once on the plane to Frankfurt Macen played for about 4 hours before she had to pull out the clock and tell him it was bed time and then he slept the rest of the way to Frankfurt. There were once again no issues in Frankfurt. Myles the Carry On Cat was scanned for his microchip and that was it for him. A member of the German version of the TSA helped Shantel get to Customs and through Customs and then Emilie was waiting to pick her up. Thank God for sympathetic strangers and good friends.

As it stands right now the Sheraton at the airport is full and Shantel is going to spend a couple of days with Emilie and then move to the hotel the night before I get in, that way Emilie doesn't have to get up early to get her to the airport.

I'll be spending the next couple of days in Mid-Missouri visiting with my family and maybe getting a bird hunt with my dad. Shantel swears that the reason I stayed was to watch the Cowboys game yesterday and to go bird hunting one last time with Maggie before I leave. She really doesn't have much sympathy for me.
