Adam's arrived in Chicago and he's surprised his grandmother!
My mother had gone to Chicago - the windy city, to visit my uncle and his family and she was really disapointed that Adam would be arriving in Florida while she was 'up north'. But what she didn't know was that we booked Adam's ticket through to Chicago so he could meet the family there and surprise her. They will fly down to Florida in a few days. In the meantime he'll get a chance to see the city where I spent the first 12 years of my life.
Uncle Ed and cousins will take him to the Knights of Columbus annual summer picnic. I hope they're all decked out in their costumes - and I hope he gets pictures. My cousin's daughters are going to take him on the train downtown for a sightseeing and shopping trip. I don't know what else they've got planned. I haven't spoken to Adam yet, I heard this info from my sister. Hopefully I will talk to him on the phone tonight.
I finally heard from the embassy. Apparently they've had my passport in Tunisia for the last four days and they expect it will take a couple of days more to finally arrive in Tripoli. It must be coming by passenger pigeon! Sigh. . . .
