The alarms woke us up at 5 AM, we got the hoppa bus back to the airport and headed for the USA. We flew back on Continental airlines once again on a 777, with an empty seat between us. I watched movies and played a few games, they fed us dinner, and lunch, and the ten hour flight to Houston was over before we knew it. Kim and Darrell, a couple from our trivia team, were on the flight with us.
After a three hour layover in Houston we flew to Los Angeles. Jim and Ellie picked us up. It was so good to see them. They drove us to the hotel, and Jim and Jimbo watched the Lakers-Celtics game, while Ellie and I played hide-n-seek, an interesting feat in a hotel room. At halftime we went out for dinner at a deli, then Jim and I hit the pillows about 10 PM, while Ellie and Jimbo watched TV for awhile.
