On his way

A. is on his way to his new life.

The morning wasn't too hectic with the last minute things. We got Janet to come over and take some photos of the whole family.

His name must be on somebody's watch-list because he was really searched. He had two check-in bags, one just books. The security man took out every single book that I had so carefully packed and flipped through it--ALL 42 of them!! His other bag was clothes, a few more books, and other stuff, and they were very thorough with that too. Good thing we weren't in a hurry. At one point the man said, "You read a lot, huh?"

We took a couple more photos while waiting in the second security line.

Then it was time to say goodbye. Hugs all around. Gary says, "Have a nice life." I start crying, and off he goes.
