Not having fun yet

Arrived at LAX at 6:00 a.m. for an 8:00 flight. JFK in New York had a weather delay- I thought a little rain only shut down Los Angeles - that pushed our flight back to 9:50. Then they tell us they just found a "little leak" in one of our plane's engines. Yeah. After sitting at LAX for 6 freakin' hours, we finally left for New York just after noon.

Want to guess if we made our connection to Dublin at 7:25? Of course not. After standing in at least 4 separate lines over the course of 2 hours, we finally got a hotel voucher (thanks to the passengers ahead of us in line who successfully argued that we really did have an equipment problem, not an 'act of God weather delay'.) It's 12:30 A.M. in New York and we're sitting the bar of a Ramada Inn, waiting for our dinner to arrive.

We're scheduled out on another flight tomorrow night at 7:25. An entire day wasted on a 7-day trip. Sure hope things get better from here.

But it could be a lot worse. We could be the woman next to us in the 'help me' line with 15-month-old twins!

Breaath in ~~~~~~ Breath out ~~~~~
It will get much better when you get there. Can't wait to hear all about it.

Oh, BTW, I bought our sample books yesterday. We'll all need a sample of some real Irish wool, so if you happen to be driving down a country lane and come upon a herd in the middle of the road, just slip out, pluck a few ounces and tuck them into your pocket... I'm sure Dick will understand :o)

Safe travels to you both
