Embassy Suites, Charlotte, NC, 1:00AM

When the recorded loudspeaker message woke us up after midnight I told Roy that I was sleeping and not to bother me. Heaven only knows if I would have walked out of there if he hadn’t told me, step-by-step, what to do: Put on your clothes, put on your jacket, take your pocketbook…I happened to have put my camera in my purse, so you get to see what I saw at 1AM on September 27th, 2008. Fortunately it was a false alarm, so we eventually got to go back to bed.

We’re now safely back in Sedona. When we arrived we were delighted to discover a big bouquet of flowers, courtesy of our friend and house-watcher, Cynthia. It’s been a long day, framed at each end by the unexpected.


Wishing you safe travels and happy endings.
