Getting up at 3.45 am was well worth it. The whole trip went very smoothly and we had the best Premium Economy seats on the plane: just behind the Business Class section, so we were in good shape when we arrived in Los Angeles, and despite the horrendous queue to get through security and onto the flight to Dallas, the flight there and on to San Antonio were easy, and in overall we were only 20 minutes late.
Jo was waiting for us, and San Antonio had laid on a very moderate day with temperature just in the high 20s and in no time we were at Heubner Oaks and meeting Marty Roo and Jac. He is, as we all guessed, a darling and in no time we were getting big smiles. Since then we have been out for a couple of walks with him, off to the supermarket and even to church. There are a couple of other people who seem to be hanging around; they prepare food and look after him when he cries. Their names begin with J......., but Marty is definitely the Main Event.
But seriously, tomorrow we take over full responsibility when Jo and Jac set off for work. We've practised the feeding, the changing and the pacifying, so I hope we'll be OK. Watch this space.
