OH, YES!!!

I am so very sad to say that I did not make it to  Las Vegas after all – I spent the entire day yesterday and just about all of last night sitting at JFK airport as my flight was delayed…and then delayed again…and then delayed again… until finally at around 11:30 PM they allowed us to board the plane and then proceeded to tell us that it would be a while until they could load in the luggage. At about 12:45 AM a man announced that we all had to “deplane.” Pandemomium ensued and when I asked the flight attendant what was going on, he told me that the pilot simply did not want to fly during these late hours. I proceeded to one of the airline’s agents who told me that the next available seat to Las Vegas would be late Saturday afternoon. So, I headed all the way back to my apartment – without my luggage, I might add, since the airline has no idea where my suitcase might be – and arrived home around 3 in the morning. I can’t begin to tell you how disappointed I am that I will not be at the Mah Jongg Madness tournament (along with about 100 copies of my book that are sitting at the Las Vegas Fed Ex waiting for me to pick them up). More regular postings to come but, in the meantime, allow me to take a deep breath and remember:
