So MoBob arrived safely on Saturday evening, thanks to his Arkansas Razorbacks t-shirt and a friend at Consular Services in the State Dept. who alerted the port of entry authorities in Atlanta. Alhamdulillah!
I took a few days off work. Not for romance, alas, but to take care of logistics for MB: bank accounts, financial adviser, driver's license, and social security. SS went very smoothly, surprisingly; the driver's license people were not as, er, efficient. (These were the same folks who closely examined my WHO vaccination card and asked if I were really sure I wanted to give up my California residency.)
I am just so glad he is here.
