Made it to Spain




We're here safe, tired and travel warriors. The cat and I got searched at the security in Virginia and Madrid. He scared everyone. I had to patted down at both airports with my implant. N got over is nervousness to fly and had the window seat the last leg of our journey. The flights were smooth and no smelly seat mates. We arrived and had a meal brought to us from B's Master Chief and his wife. Very nice! Our dogs are wonderful and sooo fat. What have they been eating, Spanish everything. They are on strict diets. We hit the commissary and exchange two days in a row. Still need varios things. Church was good today, we were introduced, no more anonymity. We were invited to a bbq at the Smith's our next door neighbors tonight. What nice folks and great food. Then we went riding on the beach at 9 pm. That was a riot-- B holding on, N a noodle on horseback, Luis es muy guapo, our instructor, A is all smiles and I got on and off by myself, hip and all did fine. Hooray for modern medicine. Tomorrow we start our indoc classes and field trips to understand Rota a little bit. A groans about it and so does N but I think we'll learn and will still have time to do things afterward. Everything here goes late into the evening. Computer is working in spurts; help is on it's way. Phone- I hope is be up this week. I can't wait to take a picture to post. Camera is charging. Until then, Love to all. Spain rocks.
