Distressed Travelers . . . that’s the name that we were given by American Airlines, but we weren’t really distressed at all. Mainly because we had just been given fuel concerning our inheritance and we just looked at our plight knowing that our boundary lines had fallen for us in pleasing “sweet” places.
Me and my two traveling companions, Sharron and Karen, left San Antonio at the appropriate time; however, as we were approaching Dallas airport, things began to change. There had been some stormy weather there so our plane was behind several others in a holding pattern. After “holding” awhile, our pilot decided we needed some more fuel and diverted us to Austin to “fill her up.” We were all very thankful that he decided to do that, but did wonder if the pump clicked off at $50.00 on his last fueling attempt. The diversion threw us behind and when we arrived back at Dallas, our connecting flight had left. We met up with 5 other siestas who were in the same boat and were all put up at a “distressed traveler” rate at a nearby Baymont Inn. It gave us opportunity to get to know 5 more of our siestas – 2 from Nebraska, 2 from Huntsville and 1 from Nashville.
I have so many interesting stories concerning our trip, but I’ll save it for when I am a little more refreshed so you will enjoy it completely! It was so wonderful to be with all our siestas this weekend! Was that a little glimpse of what heaven will be like – Presence, People and Property! I think so! What a great privilege it was to worship and fellowship with all of you.
I’m enjoying so much looking at all of your pictures. I’ll send pictures and more posts in the days to come.
