I was called in this morning to direct aquatic flight operations at HartsfieldAtlanta International Airport. My considerable expertise is wet flying was a great help. Here I am on the balcony of WH and DG's very-very fluffy hotel room.
I am off with DG and WH in search of a new nest site in DC, then onto Florida and the Bahamas then back to Florida and then back to Kentucky, for three days, then back to DC for 4 days, then back to Lexington for 4 or 5 days, then onto the new nest. OMG!
I'll drop in and update when I can to let you all know what is happening.
We have been a little keyed up the past 36 hours with a couple of odd nights of rest. We really need a nice comfy hotel like the Pan Pacific in Seattle for a couple of days of rest. No early morning email and web searches for a new nesting site.
It is official the offer has been made and accepted, notice has been given to the present employer, the official job title is Chief Counsel for the well we won't talk about that on a public blog, but it is a major national organization that does program and policy development in DG's field. DG and TR are to report to start the new job on December 15th.
A verbal offer has been made and accepted, DG is awaiting something in writing, but it looks like I am going to Washington. About 2 blocks north of the White House. In time for the inauguration. DG is thrilled speechless and slightly in shock; kind of like the dog that keeps chasing cars and one day he catches one.
We went to visit family today. They kept stepping on DG's feet, nipping at his finger and trying to catch the wrist strap on the camera in their beaks. The problem is that the floor was covered with the exhaust from lunch and they tracked penguin poo onto the tops of DG's shoes. Any ideas on how to clean penguin poo off leather shoes? My family, what can I say?
