As he traveled and before the ship left the dock, we communcated back and forth on their progress via his smart phone (Treo 650). This will be a selection of the conversations to get an idea of how the first leg of their Wedding/ Honeymoon is going for them.
We couldn't find Harold and mom for a while. But then we saw Harold sitting by himself trying to fix his camera because the TSA people disassembled it.
Mom was complaining that thier seats (Harold and Her's) were not together, so they were called separately while the plane was boarding.
Kristi got me some travel passport zipping folder her's green, mine blue and we realized that it matched our clothes -which we didn't plan. I found it more annoying than anything because it was another thing to zip and unzip (like i didn't have enough; backpack, camera bag, jacket pockets, pants). And it is too big to put in my pants pocket.

thanks for the picsADAM @ 12:57:ON THE BUS
is that a salad Harold is eating?
actually, mom ordered it so that she can eat some of the egg and ham on the salad. Then she handed it on to harold to finish. But, he didn't want all of it so he passed it on to me.
it wasn't all that great. But, being that it came from the only accessible restaurant passed the TSA and within walking distance from the baggage claim. 'The Coffee Beanery'
Kristi and I ordered a bagel /creme cheese & a bag of jalapeno kettle chips . she didn't give me any of the chips.
DAN @1:01: ON THE BUS
How was the flight?ADAM@1:20 :ON THE BUS
When do you board the ship?
wasn't too bad (the flight) the first plane was larger A320 plane. 3 seats 2 rows.
The second flight was on such a small plane 2 seats 2 rows, that there wasn't even a seat assignment (much like the bus that we are riding on.
Take off was smoother on smaller plane but you could feel more turbulence on the landing (swerved a bit).
Houston ain't much to look at this time of year. -someone on the bus said that it reminded them of Gary, IN.
Correction: the bus driver said that it is going to be an hour and one half drive from George Bush (Houston) International to the port of Galveston.
ADAM @2:18:CELL SERVICE IS GOOD...
the port of galveston has good cellphone service so once i get on the ship i will e-mail you to find out the delay of the webcam. Ok?
Could you verify if the cams are turned on and where i need to stand. It is difficult for me to pull up webcams on the treo.
It is probably going to be another hour or so by the time we get through customs to get on the ship.
