Mama's on her way

I dropped Mamamontezz off at the airport at 6:10 this morning to get her started on her little adventure to attend the Jawja Blogfest in Helen, Georgia.
I think it will be an interesting experience for everyone involved.

I'd like to publicly thank Acidman and Catfish once again for affording her this opportunity, guys, you just don't know how happy you've made one chubby Hoosier housewife; she REALLY needed this break from the stress that's been the rule around here as of late. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

Update: Mama just called me from Atlanta; her flight had been delayed in arrival in NC and she had missed her first connecting flight and had to take the next one, so she was late in arriving at Atlanta, and when Acidman and Catfish asked after her at the US Air counter, they said they didn't have her listed, so they went on to Helen. What kind of airline doesn't know about the passengers that are flying with them?
Her name was on the ticket, they were, or should have been aware of the delay, and the flight she was switched to.

All this drama could have been avoided if the damned airline had done it's job properly in the first place. US Air has lost a customer for it's poor service.

Georgia and Kim are doing they're best to secure her alternate transportation.

Someday this will be a great adventure that will be laughed at over a few beers, but not tonight.

I hope Mama has made it to her destination safely by now, I see nothing has changed since I was flying on a weekly basis. When an Airline can't forward the manifest of origin to the destination via electronic communication it speaks volumes about passenger tracking, what else are they overlooking? Before I stopped flying I had narrowed my selection down to Alaska and Delta for reliability.

Well, I'm in Gainsville, GA in the lobby of the Best Western motel, on a computer that's here for patrons. I got here just after 10:30. The shuttle, the one that left early, broke down, then left without me, just dropped me off.

Have a blast Mama and remember it's not illegal if you "don't inhale"

I've been busy the past two days and haven't been online. I was IMing Delftman when the airport flap first occurred. I told him this was a sign or prelude to a very interesting adventure. I'm happy it turned out okay.
I certainly wouldn't mind being a fly on the wall at that event!
