Where's Char?

I have trouble sleeping especially when I travel. And unfortunately, I travel a lot. Some people think it is because I'm in a strange room, some believe it because of a strange bed, and others have even accused the poor little pillow. While all those might contribute to the cause, they are not the reason.

A few days ago, I once again discovered the truth. I woke up in the middle of the night and noticed Char wasn’t in bed. I laid there a few minutes waiting for her to return – she didn’t. That’s when I got worried. I threw off the blankets and left the warm bed to go look for her.
I peeked in the bathroom – she wasn’t there. I looked in her office – not there. I walked downstairs and looked in the living room – no Char. Then into the family room – empty. I was in the kitchen when I realized she was in Atlanta. I had taken her to the airport earlier that day. In fact, I even took this picture.

I went back to bed and tried to sleep. Of course, it's hard to sleep when you’re chuckling.

Guess I don’t sleep well when she travels either.

No matter where Char is, I'm sure you always feel that all your eggs are in one basket.

Where's Char? Maybe she's with Waldo. Everyone keeps asking about him too.
