We were exhausted and just wanted to stay in bed today, but Steve Spencer, one of the trainers, had to be at the airport at 8:30 am. We were up bright and early, went to the Friendly Islander to pick him up and then we took him to the airport. It is about a 30 minute drive. On the way we found out that Steve is a cowboy poet. He lives in Eden, up Ogden canyon now but he grew up on his grandfather’s ranch. He recited poetry on the way to the airport and it was really fun. He has a great voice and he is a great poet. When we got to the airport there was no one there. That is a bad sign! The flight had been cancelled but they didn’t send out emails. The next flight would be at 11:30 at night and that cancelled out all of his connecting flights. We headed back to the hotel.
He was traveling for the church, so he was able to contact Church Travel and they got him on the same plane that the other trainers were leaving on. He switched from Air New Zealand to Fiji Air and they made connections for him. We left them all there together because they were going to turn in the rental car at the airport. We headed home!
We did the laundry, took naps, got food ready for dinner tomorrow and went to movie night. We watched “The Preacher’s Wife”. It is old, but a great Christmas movie. The couples have a lot of Christmas movies with them so we are going to have movie night every Saturday in December.
