Year 2/Day 145

Yet another day of traveling.  This time it’s not for “fun”.  Will’s dad took a turn and has been in the hosital for a couple of days.  We’re headed to San Jose, CA to spend time with his parents and see if we can help at all.

Unfortunatley, we had some plane issues and after we had already boarded the plane and spent a good 45 minutes or so aboard, they told us that the maintenance crew had tried to replace a part.  Which didn’t work, and now we need to deplane and go to another aircraft.  Yay.

Eventually we got to where we needed to be, with a safe plane to fly.  Our flight was nonstop from Atlanta to San Jose…a 4 1/2 hour flight. Good news for us…we flew first class.

Let me start a new paragraph for this explanation.

First class is…worth the money.  Damn.

Free drinks, by that I mean…free alcoholic drinks.

And a hot towel!

Dinner was served, at no charge, with real dishes and silverware. No plastic stuff here! There was even a cloth placemat provided. And peppermint chip ice cream for dessert. Yum!

After everything was cleaned up, I watched Elf and dosed in and out of consciousness until we landed. Once landed, we headed to baggage claim and found out our rental car place had closed. So, we rented a cab to the hotel, checked in, and went to sleep. Night, night.

Got something to say? Let me know!
