Bonnie drove me from Carp to Aéroport Pierre Elliot Trudeau in the blinding rain. Thanks to her caution, we arrived in what I thought was plenty of time, but because of the dog, I barely made the official check-in time.
Then, due to a technical glitch – specifically that one of the four backup batteries to the plane’s electrical system could not be made to connect - it took 24 hours longer than foreseen to get out of Dodge. They held us for five hours before unloading the baggage - including Libby - and sending us to a hotel. I got into bed at 4 and had to be up at 9 to rebook.
I was travelling with twice the free baggage allowance, plus a dog.
