Friday, 8:02 a.m. – The day so far has NOT gone as planned. We got a midnight phone call last night from Tommy and Sandi. Their plane was an hour late leaving Atlanta. Since they only had a 38 minute layover in Detroit to catch their Pellston flight – it just didn’t happen. As they were landing in Detroit, the Pellston flight was taking off. Delta put them up in a motel, and they are taking a 9:10 a.m. flight out of Detroit. Ted will be there to pick them up at the airport after a mad dash to the grocery store in Cheboygan. Hopefully, from that point everything will go a lot more smoothly!
10:10 a.m. – Ted just called and is leaving Cheboygan for the Pellston airport (about a 25 minute drive). Their plane lands at 10:20 if it’s on time, so they shouldn’t have to wait too long. They will try to make the 11:30 ferry (Pellston airport is about a 20 minute drive from ferry dock). If all that works, they should be here at the condo by 12:30, depending on how long it takes to get a taxi up here at noon at the height of the Lilac Festival. Hmmm ….. I don’t think I’ll start fixin’ lunch quite yet.
10:45 a.m. – Ted just called from Pellston Airport – he was on time, the plane is not. They should be arriving at 10:55. If they make the 11:30 ferry, it will be a miracle. Next one is 12:30 p.m. I knew there wasn’t any need to start lunch!
11:40 a.m. – They made the ferry! My husband, the miracle maker (and speed demon)!
12:32 p.m. – Maddie and Bear waiting for the taxi bringing their dad and Sandi and Tommy up the hill.
12:48 p.m. – They’re here!
It is so good to see Tommy and Sandi again – it’s been a long time. They are here at the height of the Lilac Festival, and the lilacs are almost in full bloom. There are a lot of fun events going on Saturday and Sunday, and I will have my camera at all of them.
I won’t be blogging for the rest of the weekend though, so I can spend more quality time with our guests (another guilt trip). But, good Lord willing, I promise I will have a new post online Monday morning with lots of pictures from the weekend.
Thanks for visiting with me this week, and welcome to all my new readers! Have a great weekend!
