We're baaaack. It was just a wee bit late, of course. We left Utah (one of my new favorite states!) early yesterday morning. The flight to DFW went fine. We were supposed to switch to American Eagle and be in Abilene by 4:15. But there's something about the lethal combination of bad weather, DFW, and American Eagle. We finally got to Abilene at 2:15 this morning. On a bus. Our flight had been cancelled. So we went standby on another flight that finally took off. We got about halfway to Abilene and ran into bad (and I mean B-A-D) weather. So we looped back around and, for the second time in the day, landed at DFW. At 7:45 they told us a bus would be right there to pick us up. And it was. About three hours later. So much more to write about later. I will mention how much fun it was to read the billboards in Salt Lake City on the way to the airport yesterday. Those wacky Mormons! One read: "Meet LDS [Latter Day Saints . . . or Mormons] singles. Hotsaints.com. Chase and be chaste."

  • LOL! That is a hilarious tagline. Glad you made it home safely - the weather here in the big city was pretty scary yesterday.

  • "Chase and be chaste"? That made me laugh out loud. Great word play!

  • I decided to follow that hot-link and found out that you could become a Hotsaint VIP for only $9.95/mo.

    Perhaps, another life.

  • thats hysterical and rather off kilter..

    Anyways...
    Stephen and I had our own little tiffs with DFW this week too. Oh thanksgiving traffic/weather and death to DELTA!!! Luckily when we had two hours before our flight left we got to play with this sweet little four yr old girl named kelsey. I love when parents aren't skittish abou that kind of stuff. We got to color, and play games. It was a blast overall despite the sprint from terminals on our arrival to memphis. Ah well. Travel is travel! Right?
