Maribeth and I were scheduled on the last flight from Nashville to Orlando (I know - Orlando AGAIN!). Every time she flies, Maribeth waits for an announcement eliciting volunteers to give up their seats and get a travel voucher. Tonight after getting Starbucks and Burger King, we sat in our seats. About 60 seconds later the Southwest dude made that announcement that Maribeth lives for. She raced up to the counter and returned with a $300 travel voucher and a flight for tomorrow morning. She then decided to wait around, just in case she nabbed a seat on our flight. Instead, after about 15 minutes, the Southwest dudette called for "Passenger Davidson" and arranged for her to be put on a flight to Orlando that had been delayed - and that was leaving in about 10 minutes. She ended up getting to Orlando 20 minutes before me!!
So maybe middle child dumb luck isn't so dumb after all!
Things that make today great: Safe, smooth flight; Maribeth's Southwest adventure; Molly bringing morning drinks and airport taxi service; steamer for heater; surprise package from Lewis's; great room location at Boardwalk Villas
