    The non verbals seem to say, “You ain’t going anywhere without me”.

    I can't even think about packing until hubby brings the "pupsicles" to doggy daycare tomorrow. They see a suitcase and they get very sad :(

    I think the cats know. We can't keep them out of the suitcases when we pack for a trip. But I am willing to bet money, if I was a gambler, that dogs know for sure.

    So I had an absolutely fabulous sleep of 9+ hours. That is about the same as I will get for the next two nights.

    Then I observed this:

    Our flight with Westjet was delayed 12 hours for Super Bowl so this eats a bag of soggy dicks. An optimist would say this reduced time in the casino will protect your bankroll. A pessimist would say, how can I win if I’m not there gambling?!?!

    Perhaps Laughlin ran some numbers and they have delayed this flight because they know how much I drink on the casino floor and that I’ve been on a pretty good video poker run the last 6 months??

    That sux! Hope there are no more delays. It was spring here but turned cold today and snow in the forecast. I'm extra happy I am flying out of Hamilton now. Hopefully all goes well with the flight. This is my first Swoop experience.

    Hello!!!! You are officially LIVE with Gaggles at.....the gym?????

    I thought I’d get one last damage control workout in. As you can see from the pic, I’m one of the very few people in here, dumb enough to be working out...

    Just getting better. Told we have to be at customs by 7:00 so if the plane actually goes we will be waiting over four [email protected] hours in an empty, boring airport.

    "We hope you can still join us" as part of the text message from an airline??? What a bunch of BS that is! I realize it sucks, but most folks, even with a several hour delay isn't calling the trip quits, are they? I assume there's no refund for canceling for a delay?

    Your delays sucks. We've taken that flight once to Laughlin from Calgary. Got to sit up in their so called first class seats. Was ok. Since you're flying out of the international section, I'd suggest you head over to the premium lounge and get your pre-flight buzz on. If you're Westjet gold, it's free otherwise you can normally talk them into letting you in for 40.00 each. With a 4 hour wait, I'm thinking you both can eat and power drink yourself well past that cost. I'll be doing my best to get rid of their Bacardi white this Sunday afternoon.

    It's a free flight for the two of us.......so they better be serving beer on the plane. Although Big Sack texted me to point out that an 11 pm departure will be WAY past the bedtime of a lot of the people ion that plane.

    Cheap flight = cheap airline = cheap service levels. You get what you pay for, unfortunately for our friend Mr. Gaggles.

    "When the sweetness of cheapness wears off, the bitterness of poor quality lingers on..............."

    Sometimes paying the lowest price isn't always the best deal / bargain / option

    I didn’t even pay! It’s a free flight. But I still get to complain.
