Final Farewells

2 Oct

Brad’s last day at work. I’d already bid farewell to Peppino last Friday and sadly watched as his new owner drove down the alley and towards his new home on Hanasi. I attended a couple farewell gatherings. First, a morning coffee with spouses from Brad’s office. Then an afternoon of fun and games with my Mah Jongg buddies. I was thrilled that I made Mah Jongg on a tough concealed hand (the Mah Jongg mavens know what I mean!). The evening proved rather strange. Since our flight was scheduled to depart at 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, our driver was due to pick us up at 2 a.m. Our dilemma: when to sleep…or whether to sleep before leaving the house, complicated by the fact that we needed to launder the sheets and towels in the govt. Welcome Kit. We decided to take an early nap, get up at 9 p.m., have a late dinner (pizza delivery), then wash up the sheets and towels. We barely got the last load of towels done by the time the driver arrived.
