Well, last I heard the boat that is supposed to be picking up the Innocent Bystander (that was supposed to pick him up YESTERDAY) was on it's way. It was due in at eleven Nigeria time, and his flight to Lagos was scheduled to leave at one thirty, so I should hear from him within the next hour or so. If he misses that flight, we are still okay-there is another one tomorrow that will get him there before his flight to Amsterdam.
Either way, I am fixing to get the birds ready and take them over to Mom's-that way I can come home and do things like dust and mop and not have to worry about someone plucking or pooping all over my nice clean floors. I also have to take El Juevo to a doctor's appointment and buy him provisions for whilst we are gone, and I need to get a new battery for my little boat's sump pump since charging it didn't work. We've gotten an assload of rain since last night, and the Little Miss Jackie is sitting mighty low this morning. I've never actually hooked one up before, but how complicated can it be? Oh, did I mention it is still POURING DOWN RAIN?
It is going to be a busy day, but that will make the time go faster. If all goes well, the next time ya'll hear from me (other than Dar, who has graciously offered to chauffeur me to the airport and keep my car at her house so I don't have to pay about a hundred bucks in parking garage fees) I will be officially en route. I don't know if I will get a chance to post tomorrow-I have a several hour layover in Atlanta, so it could happen. If not, I'm sure I will update you all at some point once I've made it there, hopefully AFTER the earth has moved!
