A Series Of Unfortunate Events...

Yesterday started out with so much promise, which explains why it went to hell in a hand basket so easily... I haven't slept yet and it is 06am on the 27th i have a mandatory briefing that i have to attend at 0730 and then I am going to try and catch a few hours sleep.
Basically bad things just kept happening to us.... Our original flight decided they werent going to pick us up and we were lucky enough to smuggle our selves onto the second flight. (There is one other female from my unit heading on R & R, she is going back to Idaho, to be with her husband and parents.) needless to say it has been a long and arduous day.... Starting at 2 pm customs will put us in a lock down format for no disernable reason. That will last about 10 hours and then i should be on my way to dallas, I found out i will have an additional lay over in Los Angeles. Which really isnt all that bad although i would have rather flown straight to Honolulu... any way I am admittedly passing out right here at the keyboard... so I am going to make te short as possible...
Riddle Me This:

A clock!!

A good riddle since we are watching the clock like crazy right now.

Life is, these problems too shall pass.

We'll be there with WCP (ice cold) and flip-flops and maybe something else.

We think you will be on American Airlines from what we can find on arrivals here.

Call us when you get to Dallas and have a flight #, etc.

Love you
