Chilling In Louisville For The Holidays!
It has been five years since my last visit to Da Ville and ten years since I last broke bread with my chosen family up here in Kentuckiana during Thanksgiving.
But it started with major airline drama. After my nonstop flight took off on time from Hobby Monday morning, about 160 miles out from Houston there was an indicator light in the cockpit of an issue that while it wasn't dangerous and wouldn't impede us from safely landing, it did necessitate us turning around, flying lazy circles over east Texas to burn excess fuel, and returning to Houston Hobby.
We were walking off our now grounded plane at Hobby at the 12:45 CST time I would have arrived in Louisville.
They brought it back to Houston because there's a Southwest maintenance base there, and they would rather deal with it there than have the plane stuck in Louisville canceling a trip it was supposed to do to Dallas Love Field
I handle the new phone business, but discover to my horror they can't transfer my phone contact list, and the cloud update didn't have all the numbers that I've input into that phone over the three years I've owned it.
And I now have to not only download my critical apps, I now have to remember what password I used when I signed up for the app. I also have to get acclimated to working my new LG Stylo phone.
Nevertheless despite the drama, I made it to Da Vilee and Dawn's crib in one piece, and I'm now hanging out with my Louisville fam that did stay here for the holiday.
And I also received a $100 LUV travel certificate to use on Southwest next year for my trouble
