Dick's Flying Adventure

Yesterday morning Dick rose just after 4 am in order to catch the 6.10 flight to Sydney. Not unusual at D & D HQ. On reporting to Sydney airport yesterday afternoon however, Dick was informed that there was an air traffic controllers strike. Luckily, Dick made it on an early evening flight to Melbourne, and was lulled into a false sense of security. Just as Dora was going to bed, Dick boarded a flight for Hobart, and made it all the way, except that the plane couldn't land due to fog, so it flew to Launceston, where again it was unable to land due to fog, so it flew back to Melbourne. Unfortunately all of the airport hotels were booked out by World Youth Day pilgrims, so the airline organised a hotel in St.Kilda. The cab dropped Dick at the wrong hotel. When he finally arrived at the correct hotel, it was pumping with a medical students conference. Dora woke at 3 am dazed and confused and called Dick, just after he had finally got to sleep ......

What a nightmare for poor Dick (and you too Dora). I bet he was glad to get home at last!
