He's Coming Home!
I also worked on his family tree project and am nearly finished; just putting in the finishing touches and editing.
Art is returning tonight. My brother, Dennis will be picking him up at 8:30. I'm planning to buy some Ewa sweet corn that my friends, Joanne and Diane bought at last Friday's Farmers Market and swear was fabulous. Art loves corn on the cob.
Other than that... what else is there to do? Oh yeah... I forgot #3 on my To-Do list. Cleaning the bathroom!
Mom is looking forward to having Art back. And yes, me too!
POSTSCRIPT #1: It's 10:33 AM Hawaii Time and Art has had three delays in San Francisco due to fog. It's possible he may miss his connection in Seattle and will be back tomorrow. Sigh...
POSTSCRIPT #2: We have had the worst problems with Alaska Airlines. We had all those last minute schedule changes when we went to Yellowstone. Now they've switched his flight to Delta. BUT there's a silver lining. He got a refund on his luggage from Alaska and Delta did not charge him for luggage. In fact, he was entitled to two Check Ins. That's amazing! AND he's now got a direct flight to Honolulu and will arrive 8 minutes earlier. Sheesh! Incredible! Since he won't have a stop-over in Seattle now, there won't be any clam chowder for him. I told him he should get some sour dough sandwiches instead since he's now got a 4+ hour wait in San Francisco. :-)
POSTSCRIPT #3: OK... After the long 4+ hour wait, Art was ready to board the Delta flight, BUT they said there was mechanical difficulties so they couldn't board. More waiting.
They were then sent to another gate for yet another airplane because they didn't think the plane could be repaired quickly.
POSTSCRIPT #4: After waiting at the other gate, they changed their minds again and sent them to another gate to board another plane.
POSTSCRIPT #5: My mother answered the phone while I was at the Farmers Market picking up our dinner. Art told mom he was in the process of boarding an airplane.
Instead of being home by 8:26 PM, he's due now at 10:45 PM. If there's no other problem, that is!
POSTSCRIPT #6: He's home! My brother picked him up and brought him home well after 11:00 PM. What a relief!
