LOST but FOUND!!!!!!! Luck of the Irish!!!!
Ok, the lost bag..... after much talking, asserting myself, and probably being downright rude...has been located! Once again, in South Africa, still at the airport..... But it took phone calls to three different airlines...with explanations about how it was lost and FOUND by ME last time still in AFrica!!! It was located, then sent to London, then to Chicago...in other words the route I took????? Then about midnight, a day later, I got the phone call to say they wanted to deliver it.NOW I was extremely jet lagged, and woken from a sound sleep...as well as DD who gets up about 5:45 AM in order to drive the hour into Nashville.I was very rude...and told the guy, heck no its not convenient for you to deliver it now...."ARE YOU HERE???" To which he replied that he was still in Nashville...and wouldn't get there until after 2:00 AM???!!!!! The HELL you say. I don't care how efficient you are...and that you are a 24 hr. delivery courier for the airlines. THEY lost my bag...and I am NOT staying up to wait for it to be delivered. He then tells me, rather cheekily, that MOST people are SO HAPPY to get their bag, they don't mind. Well, wrong thing to say to me , I told him, as happy as I AM to get the bag, he can leave it on the front porch....I'll take my chances!!!!! This is the US....and my daughter's mail(packages) have sat on the front porch all day....and don't seem to disappear! Besides it was below freezing and I figured most Thieves wouldn't be out cruising the cul de sac neighborhoods...looking for stuff left on the front porch to steal!!!! It did sit on the front porch all night, it was intact...still in its protective saran wrap cocoon, put on it in South AFrica at the airport to reduce the chance of ...anything being.....stol.....er ....I mean "falling" out at the baggage area. So all the stuff has arrived. quilt is intact... and now I am unpacking! Annie, will send off the parcel of "lucky draw " items as soon as I can. Thanks for the concern about the luggage..... but seriously.... how could they lose another bag? Still haven't sorted that one out. But the good news...is that the other bag, had all my stuff in it. So I am a "Lucky" Irish girl! You all have a great couple of days. I am going to try to get unpacked and sew on this baby quilt for DD. More later! Colleen
