Greg and Gaylia

Last Saturday I received a phone call from Greg. Him and Gaylia were in Hawaii visiting their daughter Lindsey and were leaving to go home the next day (Sunday). They were changing planes in San Diego. When Greg booked his flight he saw that they were arriving at home at 2:30. He naturally assumed that was 2:30 in the morning which wasn't too surprising considering he lived in Kansas and was flying from Hawaii. Imagine his surprise when he realized (at the last minute) that he was actually arriving at home at 2:30 in the afternoon and that he had an eight hour layover in San Diego.

Well Greg's mistake was my good fortune. The only down side was that his eight hour layover was during the middle of the night but I've never been one to let little details like that bother me. You can always sleep later. At 10:00 Sunday night I headed to the airport to pick Greg and Gaylia up and we had a good visit on the way home and until 1:00 in the morning. I would have visited longer but we were all beginning to fade. I then headed for bed and enjoyed a good three hours of sleep before I got up at 4:30 to take them back to the airport. 

I know it was a short visit but it was really good to see them. I forgot to get a picture while we were all awake but I snapped a quick picture the next morning as we headed out the door for the airport. Do they look a little tired? They weren't complaining though, they could have been sleeping in the airport.

The state of Kansas grows enough wheat to feed the entire world.

Wow that was a quick visit, but I agree a bed with little sleep is better than an airport chair/bench if you're lucky.

It was great to see them even if it was briefly!
