Necessary Nuisance

They gave us breakfast on the plane - about 5 am our time. Juice, and either yogurt or fruit and pastries.

We flew in over the fields and streams (and houses and churches) of England,

and arrived at Heathrow early - 10:05. The wheelchair person at the gate tried to get me to walk up the gangway - not going to happen. So she pushed me to the holding area, and then we got another wheelchair person who took us to the Lounge.

But first we had to go through security again - we had to dump out all our water (which we just got on the plane and wasn't even open). This time they picked Bob's carry-on to do an extra special inspection - scrutinized his electric razor and the charging stuff for the scooter and also of course the scooter battery and the scooter. We did not get out of there until 11:30. Very little time in the lounge

although I did use the bathroom-

there is free wi-fi but it needs a password. And as before, we got a wheelchair out of there at the last minute

This time they made Bob gate check the scooter. We were on the plane by 12:55 (for a 13:10 departure) - this was a full plane.

They gave us a light lunch which consisted of a somewhat nasty salad with a three pie shaped wedges of cheese - reminiscent of a plowman's lunch which I have never cared for, but the roll was good.
