What a Day!!!
No pics today.....it's been quite a day....started, getting up at 3:00, to get up, get Paula, and then get to the airport....hurry up and wait. We got to our gate at around 5:00, and it seemed awful dead...so at 5:30 we went to the desk...oh, that flight was cancelled....gee, when were you planning on telling us.....we stood for the next hour while the gate agent tried to get us to another flight....fortunatly, one of the other demos, had gotten on the phone to Delta, and found us all flights... and got us all set up.....something the gate guy couldn't seem to do.....so we run over to American, bound for Salt Lake, via Dallas....we were assured out luggage would follow...I guess they can't laugh at you and say...no way will your lugagge get there in one piece!!!.....Finally got to SLC, 6 hours later(we did have a nice lunch in the Admirals Club, thank you Nanette!!!)....only to find our luggage would be on a later flight and they would deliver it to our hotel later in the afternoon. SO we went over to the Convention center and did all of our check in and purchases.....and out to a nice dinner....started walking back to the hotel...and the wind picked up...micro burst time.....yuck!!!! Got to the hotel....no luggage.....it's still sitting in Co. Spgs....would be on the first flight out.....so no clean clothes, or toiletries.....so we are not happy campers...and not in the best of moods....But, we did get here....and tomorrow has got to be better!!!! I would love to go sit in the hotel hot tub...but I don't think they allow skinny dipping.....drop me a comment to lift my spirits...and your name will go in the blog comment drawing on Sunday!!!!!
