Alas, the day had finally come to conclude the honeymoon and return
home to Arlington, Virginia. The plane was scheduled to leave
at 8:05 a.m., and it did. Unfortunately, Joyce was feeling very
badly and changing planes in Minneapolis brought her to tears.
The folks at the airport had kindness in their hearts for her,
allowing us to be driven via handicap cart to the other end of
the airport when a last minute gate change occurred.
Upon arrival at DCA, Eldon
and Arlene met us and provided transport home. It seems like all
they do is ferry us to and from the airport, any airport! However
badly I was feeling, the significance of arriving for the first
time at our home wasnt lost on either of us; it was
a special moment. The special moment quickly gave way to a trip
to the doctor, unpacking would just have to wait. The visit went
well and we then returned home to begin the process of settling
into our roles as man and wife.
