Cowart's Common Room
Poet's Day

Hello to all,
some weeks seem to be more difficult than others Rolling Eyes
It all started last Sunday: we lost Paul, the brave male goose, to the fox. cry: We are left now with a non matching pair and they call all day for the lost one Rolling Eyes

The week had a very tight organisation, I had appointments in Spain on Monday and Tuesday, came back by 1.00 o' clock by night to do the relay on the farm, my better half went off Wednesday morning at 6.00 h for Russia. Arrived well and when he entered the hotel he could not find his passport anymore Shocked. He is travelling since 35 years and so far, never lost any wallet or identity or so. Whether stolen or lost, it's all the same. Stuffed now. He got a Russian guy to help him kicking the police to deliver a certificate so that he could go on another plane this morning to manage his appointment. Did get there but they didn't let him come back Shocked
It's all uncertain now how he can get new identity, visa and new ticket to come home. I am preparing myself mentally to be alone for the weekend as well.
I think, I really do look forward to retirement....

And if the worst happens and you do end up still waiting for him over the weekend - we will be here to get you through, but he has all day tomorrow to work on the problem . .so hopfully he will be with you very quickly.

So sorry too that you lost your goose to the fox.

Frances's Avatar This is bad stuff. I am sure that you and he have contacted all who are the ones who are supposed to sort this out.

Over here in the States, we continue to wonder if those who are the ones who are supposed to sort things out, really have a clue.

Competance, caring, attention to detail ... let's hope that these continue to gather strength.

Faith's Avatar Oh how awful and worrying and annoying to lose your Passport - big sympathies to him!

And I'm sorry about your poor goose - bl**dy fox! It must be sad hearing the others cry for him. Will you get another male?

Bayou's Avatar No good news Sad
British Embassy in Moscow is not able to help as the visa has been issued in St. Petersburg. At the airport in Moscow, they won't let him fly out of Russia. He has now to find a connection to St. Petersburg. But by the time he will be arriving, their foreign office will be closed and he will be sitting there until Monday morning Shocked
On top of that, he has to cancel all next week's appointments and - how funny is that, week after next can be cancelled as well, as it is again Russia and no passport until then....
If I had a groom, I would have booked a ticket for St. Petersburg to spend the weekend there Confused Ok - we will now have to do the best of it. Will certainly come back more often to chat with you - at least there is a party Very Happy
