Airports, Bridges, Love and Incredible Luck

Baggage Carousel

Baggage Carousel

OC is back from SF! Yay! I went to the airport this afternoon to pick him up. He arrived safe and sound (well, perhaps just a tad bit frayed). His luggage did not arrive at all. We hurried to the baggage claim counter to file a report. We were there for quite sometime. I mostly stood quietly while OC talked.

Finally, report filed, we turned to leave and I picked up OC’s cornet (he’d taken it as carry-on) and OC grabbed his briefcase … which is about the time that I realized my purse was missing. Simultaneously, I saw it on the bench where I’d left it — and two nervous security guards were standing over it.

I stepped up to them, grabbed my purse, and slung it over my shoulder. One of the security guards asked if it was mine. I assured him that it was and asked him if he wanted to search it. He told me he had. Then he asked me to name the contents. I told him it held a digital SLR Nikon camera and a Kim Harrison novel. He relaxed and thanked me for being patient.

He thanked me! I figure I have to be the luckiest idiot on the face of the planet! I thanked him.

Here are some of the pictures that were in the camera:

When Alice wanted bridges, I didn’t have the time to get a picture of the elevated freeways — then today I realized that the airport is the exact perfect place to do so! Look close, there are three different levels shown here. On Oahu one can drive for miles elevated highways.
