Wednesday, February 04, 2015 11:35 am – 8:25 CST
11:35 is somewhat of a guess because we are over the Atlantic Ocean. We took off from Atlanta about 3 hours ago on a 7 ½ hour flight. I will start at the beginning of the day: Got up at 7 and did a bunch of last minute stuff such as going to the Neighbor Walmart to get some drain clogger or unclogger. My special checker is flagging both of those words but I am fairly sure they are words. Had a prayer with Linda and then she had to leave for Ladie’s Bible Class. Bapp, our darling daughter, picked me up around 10:20 and we headed for DFW. Made it with no problems which was somewhat surprising since I have seen her drive! Got my boarding passes for DFW to Atlanta and Atlanta to Paris but will have to get my Paris-Douala boarding pass in Paris. I was able to Skype with Linda and Charlie Brown in Atlanta. He got on Yellow today (not good) but he said it was an accident. We boarded and took off on schedule. I am flying Delta instead of American this time and I discovered something: airplane food is always GREAT regardless of the airline! I started a book called Gifted Hands which is the life story of Dr. Ben Carson. An incredibly interesting guy. If you get a chance; You Tube him and see some of his speeches. I have also went over my Bible class and sermon for this Sunday. I have my seminar material with me and will either look at it next or sleep. The picture below is of Bapp’s youngest son, KB. That is one of the more serious pictures you will get of him. Will write more later. Thanks for your continued prayers.

Landed safely in Paris. Think I got about 90 minutes of sleep. In Dallas I was unable to get the boarding pass from Paris to Douala but it was no problem. Went through security and went to the restroom. The reason I bring this up is because they have switched to ‘co-ed’ restrooms. Previously the only ‘co-ed’ restrooms I had been in were in homes! Well, as it turned out it really wasn’t a ‘co-ed’ RR as I had went into the ladie’s room. Funny but the women inside did not look surprised to see me. It was only after I left that I saw I had entered the wrong place. The fight was supposed to leave at 11 and we left promptly at noon. Should land in Douala around 6:30. On this flight I will primarily read. I have already read a couple of magazines and now wll focus on the seminar material; mine as well as Chris and Louise’. We are still 4 hours from landing so I wil have plenty of time.
Thursday, February 5 5:50pm-Friday, February 6, 2015 12:50am
I was going to wait and write tomorrow but decided to go ahead and get it over with. The pilot must have ‘stepped on the gas’ because we arrived at 5:50. Took longer than usual to get through Customs and I don’t know why because there were the same number of workers and basically the same number of passengers. They are remodeling the airport and it will be interesting to see what it looks like when it is finished. When I got out Jean Claude & Mary, Louis and Linda along with Jean Claude’s brother Paul was there to greet us. They had come in the hotel bus but just as we were fixin to leave the driver had to pick up a family so we were a little later than usual. When we got to the hotel we had to switch rooms and the entire episode took over one hour. Then I got an email from Louise that her flight from Lubbock was cancelled today so she will fly alone tomorrow Ain’t traveling grand! So, we will pick Chrs at the airport tomorrow night and then Louise on Saturday. Please pray that her flights are on schedule. I was able to Skype with Linda and Charlie Brown tonight. There is more I could write but I need to take a shower and hit the sack. Everything is going well.
