Philippine Connection - August 5, 2002 Monday

Canada, Home Sweet Home

The short flight from Las Vegas to Toronto was filled with eager anticipation of being back home again...back to my kids, my job (I missed it too, seriously) and the familiar comfort of my apartment. Upon arrival at the Toronto airport, I, together with a bunch of passengers learned that our luggage was misdirected...argh!!!...but it came out good in the end. This way, I can take the local bus (instead of a $30 cab fare) since I didn't have to carry that 70-lb. luggage with me - Air Canada will deliver same to my house instead, hopefully, the following day.

I had great bonding with my kids. Hugs and kisses were in order. Too bad, without my luggage, there were no treats for them. But a day's wait isn't too bad either.

I also took to task the bottling of my Cabernet Sauvignon, which has been aging in my carboy the entire time I was in the Philippines. As expected of home-made wine, no matter how robust the grape, it always comes out fruity with virtually no trace of tannin. It's okay...I'm partial to the fruity taste of Beaujolais anyway.
