Bad News, Good News

Bad News
Our vacation is over.

Good News
We loved South Dakota!

Bad News
Our flight Saturday was delayed
so long in Rapid City we missed
our connecting flight in Chicago.

Good News
The 4 hour delay allowed us
more time to visit a museum
in Rapid City called
'The Journey'.
It was a wonderful place, all
about the geology & history of
the Black Hills area.
We also enjoyed a great lunch at
a place called 'the Firehouse Brewing Co'

Bad News
By the time we got to Chicago, there
were no more flights to Wilkes-Barre, PA

Good News
Since it was a mechanical delay, 
our room was FREE  and
so we stayed at the same Doubletree
that we stayed in last Saturday.
We also got $30 food comp which
we used at the same restaurant
in the Doubletree that we ate in
last Saturday.

Bad News
 We are home
(that actually is bad/good news!)
Our luggage isn't!
They put an APB out on it.
I was smart though.
I packed jammies, makeup,
medications, and a change of clothes in 
the carry-on.
Even our souvenirs were in this bag!
United won't get me down!!


  1. You go Girl!!

    Sounds like the travel wasn't the best, but we sure enjoyed the sites of South Dakota.

    Thanks for taking us on vacation ;o)

  2. Thanks from me too. Once I am on the road I hope to get to SD to visit my cousin. I haven't seen him in over 30 years.
