First Class

We arrived to the San Diego airport early, allowing two hours for security. We checked in, and, much to my surprise, Dan had paid for us to fly first class from San Diego to Nashville. I have never flown first class and was simply amazed (jumping up and down actually). Unknowingly, with recent events in London, the lines at the security checkpoints were insanely long, stretching across the breezeway into the long term parking. We showed our tickets to the TSA rep, who stated: "First class coming through." We were brought to the front of the security line, right next to Bill Murray. No way...Bill Murray, who wore a blue/white seersucker suit with a ragged polo and black Nike shoes. Who ever said that movie stars dressed nicely -- ha!

We had enough time for breakfast and Starbucks - phew! Just about the time we were to board, we were notified of a 1.5 hour delay due to storms in Texas. Great. The first leg of the flight went as smooth as silk, except for the shocking revelations in the books we had decided to read en route: Running with Scissors and Dress Your Family in Denim and Corduroy. I won't ruin the shocker for you, but...Let's just say, Dan left his book behind.

The landing into TX was amazingly smooth, considering the ominous clouds. Unfortunately, we were on the tarmac for over an hour waiting for a gate. Everybody was backed up. All flights were late. 40 planes sat ahead of us. The scene did not look promising; we thought we may need to spend the night at the Ft. Worth airport. Luckily, our second leg to Nashville was delayed by 4 hours, allowing us 40 minutes to grab some grub before jumping on the final flight. Around 11pm, we had arrived at Fort Campbell; Dan's family waiting with open arms to say "hi."

Tomorrow, we are caravaning to Pensacola for a family reunion. Wish us luck. Storm Dennis is expected to hit the panhandle on Sunday. Hurricane Party!!!
