Four airports, three continents and 25 hours later...

... I'm back in the UAE after three weeks in the United States of Awesome. And what a journey it has been.

Let me illustrate. In Chicago, the Cubs lost.

Taken out to the ballgame.

In Kansas City, bourbon slushies.

Best accompanied by home-smoked ribs.

In the Pacific Northwest, MiG-29s.

The aggressor squadron has landed.

In Orange County, homebrew!

Tastier than it looks.

Then, on the way back, I managed to get an Irish immigration stamp in my passport--odd, because the half-hour I spent in the airport was entirely in security lines. Which is not how I have typically thought of Ireland.

So now I'm back--and just in time for Eid. Here's to cooler weather and food consumption during daylight hours....

Wonderful report. Thank you. How are your parents? Haven't heard Boo. I'll have to drive over there and see if they are alive.
I love your stuff.
